Beautiful Bowl!!! I can’t wait to get my Lathe Chuck so I can start turning some bowls.

If you don’t mind me asking, what Lathe Chuck do you use?

Nice piece with a good, sturdy shape. The wall thickness and wider base give it a “reliable” look. Many bowls look like they’d tip over if you breathed on them. This piece looks like you could put food in it and not have to worry. Nice change of pace.
