Beautiful bowl. Love the wood grain. Wonder what kind of wood it is?Looks like you are doing a great job of turning. When I first started I did a lot of spindles before I even tried a bowl.

Wow, that is one beautiful bowl and great wood you used. It is amazing what is being scrapped that could be pieces of art! you sure found a beauty for bowl #2. Are you numbering your bowls?I have each one of mine numbered because my mentor said that I needed to make 50 bowls before I made a hollow vessel. So I am up to bowl #60. You’ll be surprised at how fast you make them!!

Great save from the trash pile. You never know what you have till you put the tools to it. Very beautiful grain.

You really go lucky with that amazing piece of wood. That said, I am even more impressed at what a nice shape and proportions you got and only your second bowl! I’m sure your future holds a lot of fantastic turnings.

Did this wood have a nice smell when you turned it? Looks a lot like it could be camphor. It’s a nice turning wood and often has a lot of color and character. Very nice for your second bowl.
