This is my first attempt at turning a bowl. Based on our thread on Pandora’s box, I am going to open myself up for constructive criticism, because the bowl has shortcomings, and I want to be able to do better. The blank is Osage Orange. Perhaps this is the wrong wood for a first attempt, I don’t know. I chucked it up square, rather than knocking off the corners. I am thinking that is the wrong approach. There are quite a few catches and tear outs in the bowl. It is too thick at the base, a tribute to my impatience.
I think it could have been a nice bowl because of the grain patterns, but I rushed it. All suggestions gratefully accepted.
