Purchased a couple chucks of Indiana Cherry and Walnut to create my first bowl! I just created the design on the fly and wanted to let the shape and curves evolve as I created the bowl. Although it is not finished I am very pleased with the shape and the outcome. The inside of the Cherry bowl really has some interesting grain and character. My next step is to apply BLO and then some gloss lacquer to make it shiny. I have a small hobby lathe and to turn an 8in bowl that is about 3 inches deep took about two hours. I will post a photo of the finished project once the lacquer dries!!

Very nice first bowl. I have my lathe up and running and am joining a club this coming Wednesday to get some lessons. So I hope to be producing something more than just shavings soon. Thanks for sharing.
