My first bowl

I finally put the new lathe to use, and made my first ever bowl. It’s made from lightly spalted hackberry. The biggest thing I learned form this project, is that I need a good power sanding set up, as I spent more time sanding the bowl than I did turning it. The finish I chose to use was mineral oil & wax.
