These are pretty modest bowls but they are the first things I’ve turned in years, and the first green wood turning I’ve done. The one in front is a small pear bowl and was the first one I made. The wood was from a neighbor’s Bradford pear that split in a wind storm. The one with a foot is of red maple and the smaller one without a foot was from a piece of standing dead silver maple. Just getting the hang of it again.

They look like you never quit. Great bowls. Greenwood seems hell bent on warping as it dries though.
Hope they don’t get too out of shape.
