Nice use of small pieces. I know it's only your 5th bowl, but you may want to start turning them with less straight walls. IMHO, the best looking bowls have a nice gentle, continuous curve from top to bottom; both inside and out. Keep practicing and you'll get there.

That bowl was perfect right up until that last cut...

It looks like you're getting clean cuts down in there and that ain't easy. Practice make perfect. Good work.

You can never have too much pepperoni on your pizza or own too many clamps.

Good work there Swirz
Looks more like a cup to me

Pine is a good wood to play with eh . We get to learn the ropes of softwood tearing , and keeping our tools sharp and our touch light eh mate

Get a firewood log , wet or dry , about a foot across , twice as long as it is round and split if in half with the axe . Trim it up till it is roughly circular , screw the faceplate onto it , chuck in on to the lathe , start at a slowish speed , grab your biggest roughing gouge and have at it .
Make lots of lomg shavings , find out whats under them .

I find that hand thrown pottery bowls are good shapes to think of when I'm turning .
Potters are woodturner's first cousins , we go way back , and they have kept a lot of the most basic as well as the classic forms alive .
