Well I decided to get further Into woodworking and purchased my first lathe. This bowl was my first ever attempt at turning anything. It’s pretty simple but I think it turned out beautifully.

Great job, I wish my first bowl looked as good as yours.
Thanks for sharing.

It is fun and is a blast as you say. Turning is one of my favorite wood activities. I made my lathe and it does an OK job. and have did a few video’s, links with my projects.
