This is one of my first bowls. I recently purchased a lathe and have found a new passion. All feedback is welcome.

That is a great looking bowl. Once the lathe bug bites it’s a down hill slope.I find myself at the lathe making nothing but shavings as a form of relaxation.

This is a gorgeous bowl and I can well understand the passion even though I don’t have a lathe- YET.

Nice job, I understand how addicting it can be as well. The real challenge is finding the balance. when i first bought my lathe I put all my other projects on hold. Now I stagger projects so as to not totally forget about everything else I want to do. I also try to incorporte turnings into projects, ie draw pulls, exotic wood dowels things of that nature.

That is a beauty of a bowl. You seem to have a talent for turning.
