First Bowl

The is my first bowl. It is turned from a log of Hard Maple I found stacked on the side of the road. I turned it as an anniversary present for my wife. I was so amazed by the near pure whiteness of the wood that I kept the bowl very simple in design (that and it is my first bowl). I turned it on a 1940 Montgomery-Ward lathe.

I don’t know why the up load turned pictures upside down. I even tried uploading upside down pictures in hope they would load right side up…. Nope upside down pictures loaded upside down…..

I don’t think your bowl will hold water!!!

Looks good from hear….
But then again, I’m hanging off the ceiling.

I see your getting use to your lathe. I too, will be going around that “dangerous” learning curve!

Keep up the learning & good work!!!

Maybe your lathe was spinning to fast and it just flipped over…..

I had trouble with my first post flipping over and was told to be sure when taking pictures with the iPad to make sure the home button is on the right hand side. It worked for me it may for you as well. The bowl looks great even upside down ! Larry

And a nice bowl it is. I fear you have slipped down that slippery slope.
