Made this bowl a couple of weeks ago. Took a class at the Woodcraft store near me out of curiosity. The class was well taught, hands on and very informative. The bowl is made from birch or pine not sure and has no finish, my wife wanted it unfinished.

There is a big problem with your “First Bowl.” Your wife will want more and then you will need to buy tools to make them. Now wait, that isn’t a problem, that is a blessing. Nice work, now go make some more :)

Great job! There are a lot of wood turning chapters in NY, you can visit the American Association of Woodturners at http://www.woodturner.org/community/chapters/LocalChapters.asp Do a search for NY and pick a chapter near you. Most have a website or contact. I joined our local chapter here and for a very modest fee, i go to one meeting a month and usually their “sawdust” session for 6 hours on Saturday. Best investment I ever made, I have learned so much… And did I mention it is fun too.

Nice, I like the grain….

There’s a big difference between birch and pine. If it smells like pine sol, well, then it’s pine. Pine also has resin canals that can ooze pitch….

That’s a nice clean bowl. I wish that I could get into turning but though I’ve bought some equipment for it I’ve been dragging my feet on it. I’m hoping that after I get my shop built I can get into it. I hope I can do as well as you seem to be doing.

This bowl was done with a scroll saw. I have to post some of my lathe work, I just haven’t had time to post projects let alone any shop time since I bought my lathe back in December.
