Don’t worry, all that’s normal. I had bowls snap off. Might be your tenons were too shallow, might be your tool angle was too aggressive. Just keep learning and watch videos of people who can either teach or are really good at turning (Capn Eddie, Robbiethewoodturner, Jake Gevorgian, Gord Rock, RoboHippy, BrendanStemp). Those are just a few.
