Here are the first bowls I made, the Oak potpourri bowl is the first. Probably not the best choice for a first try as the wood is 150+ years old, dry and brittle. Turned on an old Craftsman tube type lathe .

The cherry bowls are attempt #2 and #3, after upgrading to a Rikon mini lathe,

These look good to me. Can you share what cutters you used in cutting the insides of your bowls?

While I have had my lathe for over a year now, I have only made a handful of leg sets and a number of handplane knobs thus far. I will look into doing some small bowls eventually 8-)

I don’t see anything wrong with any of them. Even the oak bowl looks good. You’re doing nice work. Far ahead of me with the lathe.
