Welcome! Plenty of advice on here to get you up to speed on all the "in's and out's" of turning. Personally I adore lathes and bowls are one of my favorite things to turn. I say this all the time to people but lathes are crazy dangerous, I'm missing a chunk of my left hand from getting it too close to a bowl I had been turning (My second one to be exact). Always make sure to follow safety procedures and wear proper safety gear, if you haven't already pick up a full face shield. I can't tell you how many times mine has saved my face from things flying off my lathe (that's what happens when you go a bit too thin on longer pieces). Do some research before you get started but once you do, it's all you're going to want to do as turning is an absolute blast!
It's not bad to dream. But you also have to consider what's realistic. -All Might (Boku no Hero Academia)
