A total of four bowls, two made out of brazillian oak, and two out of cherry. Both woods were from a wood gloat, for $20 i got a bit of soft maple, a bunch of cherry, a whole bunch of brazillian oak (which smells absolutely amazing, better than cedar imo) some white oak, a little cypress, and a little poplar.
The second picture is the brazillian oak, and the third is cherry. I noticed my first and last turnings sucked, while the others turned out very good.
All four bowls are finished with beeswax, and they are roughly around 4.5×1.5.
Out of a 1-10, id give em a 6 i think.

Nice bowls but where’s the picture of the new lathe? The heading said new lathe so I am curious as to what you got.

I take it you aren’t new to turning just a new lathe. Your work is good.
