This is the first thing I have ever made on a lathe. I have been interested in doing something for awhile but don’t want to invest in a lathe until I know morea about it. I found a class on turning a bowl and went to it Saturday. The class was great and I went home with this figured maple bowl that will be a Christmas present for my wife who has been asking for one for some time now.

Nice bowl, A lathe is not a tool to me, its a place to go when I want to get away from the world around me. Even when people are around me no one walk up to you when they see you sticking a knife into a spinning piece of wood. I picked up a cheap sears lathe and tools for a few dollars then found a little better one cheap again and more tools. I can spend a whole day standing there making shavings. keep up the work, you started off with one nice turned project.

Excellent bowl! and your first to boot! I agree w/ Paplou. It is more than just a skill. I am certain your wife will love it.
