I just got a lathe and here is my second attempt at a bowl. The wood is cherry and it is approximately 6” wide and 2.75” tall. It is finished with some mineral oil and paraffin wax. There were some issues with the bowl (I left the base thick because I thought it would add some nice weight to the bottom, but it just looks silly; and there was a little bit of tearout on the lower inside wall that I missed while doing the final scraping and sanding and didn’t notice until it was finished and I had turned the foot so I can’t really re-chuck the bowl and scrape/sand it one more time). But other than those, I am pretty happy with the result. I hope that the bowls keep turning faster and better.
