My first bowl, spalted maple. A bit punky, it should have been stabilized first but hey I can’t learn everything the first time out. Finished with mineral oil.

Beautiful first bowl, Rick! Being that it is spalted that much, I don’t think it will move much now.At least it is not punky. That requires a lot of work to make it come out looking okay. You sure started off with a very pretty grained wood!! keep on turning!!!!!!!! Oh and number them. My mentor told me that I should not attempt a hollow vessel until I have turned at least 50 bowls. I’m now up to 59. it is amazing how fast the count up!!

Very cool looking wood and congrats on a successful first bowl… Look forward to giving some turning a try once I attain a lathe although might be a few :(

Great lookin bowl. The spalting makes for an unusual grain pattern.

Very nice work, Rick. I like the way the spalting is kind of concentrated on one side. Makes it visually appealing.

Great job even if it was the first. All that I am able to do is based on making mistakes. Made a few today. Just one of those days when nothing seem to go right. Keep on turning.
