I do not think I was brave enough to take a picture of my first bowl. Neat idea about the epoxy

I have to agree with Lew and Gerald, my first efforts weren't anywhere as good as that. More than a few of mine were actually "flying bowls", for one reason or another.....

I swear it was singing come sail away as it flew off the lathe.

So you have been visited by Father Murphy.  We are on the watch for the guy.  If you catch him, a slow painful torturous death is in order.  I am thinking complete hair follicle removal.  Takes 3-5 days, or so I was once told.:throbbinghead:

I had forgotten I had made a bowling type thing before it’s a ash try for my neighbor now. It started as an end grain hot plate thing. Then it somehow ended up with a base attached to it l and on the lathe. Not sure how it happened must be some magical turning fairy out there. Things seem to just appear on there all the time.

Thank you I feel like I should have done more. But I’m happy with it now to figure out a finish. I’m thinking of trying a French polish on it.

Looks good. If I remember right my first bowl ended up in 3 or 4 pieces.

I keep hearing about exploding and or flying bowls. I’m wondering if I did something wrong now lol. But thank you i took it really easy on the bowl it has thick walls because i played it safe. They are probably 1/2 inch thick so there’s a lot of meat left on it. Well I think that’s a lot still new to turning.
