ok another bowl,this one is from claro walnut 3”h x 7-1/2” w.my first turned from green wood,i mean it was wet at around 40% + the shaving hitting felt like i was in the forrest after a rain,cold and damp.turned about 90 % then let it dry for a week then put it into a dehydrator to finish drying down to about 12%.was lucky did not warp of check at all.finished with 1 coat sanding sealer 3 coats gf salad bowl finish (recommended by lesb) and 1 coat of black bison wax.

yeah the green wood is a lot easier to turn but can pose problems when it dries.this one went real smooth.
