Suzie beat me to it. I was going to suggest following an older wood turning text book. Understand that it will not have information about chucks and fancy Irish grind for tools., BUT, if you complete that text book and all the practices, you will have a better foundation in basic turning than 99% of turners. Bowl turning holds an allure for many. To me, bowl work is a small part of turning. A bowl has utility, but often ends up being a dust collector of a shelf. I like things that move, do work, have a purpose for use other than just sitting there. Tops, yo-yos, rolling pins, chair legs, lamps, a flute, a chanter, a needle case, a dibble, Christmas ornaments, little pieces for the ends of lamp chains, pens, 40 years ago, I was given a rifle in an obsolete straight wall caliber. I took some rock maple and turned loading tools to reload the cartridges because no one made the tools. I loaded cartridges with that wooden set of tools for 35 years, until my house and shop burned down. I recently made a small wooden dish set for a toddler. a set of dishes, bowls and chalices of wood in miniature for a little girl to play with. I also made a small set of bowling pins and a wooden ball, for her 2 year old brother.
For the most part, bowls just sit there. there are so many other items that can be made that can be used every day. That move, that promote play, etc.
