This Guatemalan Mora bowl is the third bowl I have made as a relatively new turner. This is my first posting. My lathe is a Jet 1221 midi lathe. Mora is the hardest wood I have worked with (2,380 lbf on Janka scale) but in the end I am pleased with it. Finished with simple home made friction polish, and a very thin application of Renaissance wax.

Looks like an heirloom bowl to me. It is fun to try as many different types of wood till you find the ones that work just perfect for you. Bradford Pear, Olive wood, pecan, and cherry are some of my favorite. Oh and Jobillo. Have fun and hopefully you’ve realized the lathe is the least expensive part of this hobby :)
