apple wood bowl

my wife and I went to gatlinburg camping for the weekend for her birthday.we had a great time and wished it was longer
we went to the Apple barn winery to eat breakfast and she saw this wood and convinced me to ask for some so i did
i am trying to get something to turn from every trip we make
this is my first apple turning.its green and fun to turn
hope you like it
i also got a nice piece of FBE from a nice gentelman on here (thanks man) i cant wait to to turn

Robert, in my experience, green apple wood will warp and crack like mad, so make sure you're drying it slowly in a bag with some shavings. Looks great by the way.

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