I’m getting the hang of it. It has gone from a frustrating challenge to being fun.

Love the two color cup. Fantastic job on the large bowl, too.

Thanks guys.
lew, that cup is oak and maple. Oak is nasty stuff to turn. It splinters real easy and a catch can blow out a big chunk of it quickly. I think I sharpened the scraper about 6 times getting it hollowed out.
The mahogany bowl was easier but it is so dry that the dust went everywhere.
