Here is my second attempt at bowl turning, since getting my lathe at Christmas. It is figured maple with a mineral oil finish (food safe!). The blank was 8" x 8" x 3". I worked on this over the course of 2 days, for a total of around 8-9 hours combined.
This bowl was my Father's Day present to my Dad.
What's the deal with the Sharpie? I put in in the picture for perspective.
When I did my first bowl, I showed alot of people the pictures. Then when I showed them the actual bowl, they were disappointed that it wasn't as big as they thought it would be.
