    Neat looking little bowl Dawn, I wish my first one had turned out half as good

    Great job, Dawn. Much nicer than my first bowl, too. What's the size?

    Seems like a lot of folks make their first bowl with an undercut rim. (I know I did.) As it turns out, those are harder to make than a more traditional bowl shape. I suspect there's a hollow form turner in you waiting to get out, Dawn.

    I'll make the 3rd guy to comment that your 1st bowl is much nicer than my first bowl

    Nice bowl, Dawn!

    As for it being a different shape than what you started out to make, I don't think I've yet finished a turned piece that was the shape that I'd originally intended. Between catches and "OOPSes," they always seem to change shape during their evolution.

    As Jim says, seldom does the finished piece reflect exactly your original idea. Most of the time it will be because your idea evolves while you are turning. It's often easier to see what the form should be once you start working on it.

    Yeah! Right! That sounds a lot better than 'turning out the catch marks.'

    It's not correcting a mess-up, it's 'evolution!'
