First Completed Bowl

Brad
>I bought my lathe in March and have roughed out several bowls since then, I was anxious to complete one (I'm sure everyone can empathize!). I remembered that I had a chunk of cherry burl in the shed that I "harvested" about ten years ago. With my limited skills I was hesitant to put this prize piece of wood on the lathe, but couldn't resist. Here is what I came up with. The bowl is about 8.5" in diameter, 3/8" thick (my nerve gave out), finished with several coats of danish oil. Your comments are most welcome.

(This turning is a blast!)
