Live edge Birch burl bowl with birds eye

Great looking turning, Timber! I bought a lathe last year, but have never used it. My wife saw this and said “I WANT one”, so it is about time to start learning.
Thanks for the inspiration.


-- I measured it twice, cut it twice, and it is still too short!

Thanks for you’re comments everyone. Mike setup is much the same, there are many ways to mount the bowl blank, its youre own preference. Do your outside profile first then take out the middle. :) Oh and did I mention sanding, and then more sanding. Happy turning..

Wow! Looks great! But as an up and comer, I would like to know any and all tips on setting the lathe up for this kind of turning. Have only turned knobs and short legs thus far…
