Finally got around to trying my hand at turning a bowl. I had a chunk of curly maple that had been lying around so I set it up on a block and my face plate (first time I used the faceplate too) I had done some experimental hollowing and had been shown the basic techniques, combine with some online videos of bowl turning I think I managed to figure it out. the finish is linseed oil.
