SWEET!! very nice…I am loving all these “first turnings” coming up on the pulse today…I think it is a sign!!! (dying to turn—-but i need to shut up because I have been saying that for months)...

Congrats on an awesome first bowl!!!

Beautiful. How big is it? What kind of finish? Nice photography too.

Nice looking bowl you have there. What did you use for the finish?

Thanks for the great complements .
The bowl is 5.5”x 2.75” I used MinWax wipe on poly
last week I finally got my Powermatic 3520B and just love it Its a Big Big difference from my Rikon mini.
It so quiet and smooth.
Any advice on different finishs is Greatly appreciated !
Thanks again
