Default New attempt

came up with a block of purple heart and thought I try turning a bowl since I've never turned a bowl before. Turned pens and spindle work but no bowls.

Should have tried something softer but I got it done.

It looks great Dan and I like the transition of colour from the purple at the rim to the brown at the bottom.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Looks great, Danny. What did you use as a finish?
