First green wood

This is my first peace of green wood. It is black walnut. Would love to hear your opinions on it thanks

Way to go Logan. Great start. How often do you get to turn?

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

Uphill, look on the web for bowl images, find a shape/style you like and work on duplicating it. Great practice.

Sounds great ...

Don't be surprised if your lathe slows down or stops completely when you turn a piece that size.

I find I have to take really light cuts to avoid this happening -- it's less fun than peeling off a nice juicy thick shaving, so I normally just go for it and live with the lathe stalling out from time to time
