So I gave the 4 sided bowl a shot last night and am very pleased with my results. Turning the corners is a bit tricky as most of the time you’re turning air, but with an extremely sharp tool, didn’t have any tear out which was my initial greatest fear. There was a large knot in the wood that you can see in the 3rd picture on the left that I was actually hoping would go all the way through, but it ended right at my finished depth. I love turning rough cut lumber as I could not see any of the grain initially due to the rough mill saw cuts. Once I got it trued up on the top and bottom I knew I had a special piece of wood. All constructive criticism is welcome. Thank you for looking.
