This is my first try at turning a natural edge bowl. The bowl would have been deeper, and look more like a bowl
had I not been scared it would blow out. I hit a large worm hole with the worm still in it so I decided I better quit turning.

I am sure the worm felt worse about it than you did!

I like it

Love the look of this bowl just like it is! Nice work!

Bowl looks good. I like the diff patterns in it. Don’t feel bad bout the thickness as my first natural edge was about 1 1/2” thick also. Just keep up the good werk. Ole worm’ll have to get a new house huh? Haaa Haaa

Don’t blame you for being cautious.
