Hi Bob three good bits as they are all firsts,

I agree the square bowl is a nice one with such a great piece of grain showing.

I also like burrs because of the natural inclusions.

To add to Bob's reply when turning the outside you have all of the wood holding the form, it is only when you start to turn the inside that care and caution is needed sometimes and depending on how many inclusions are in a piece I will wrap tape or even industrial cling film(clear food wrapping film called different things in different parts of the world) on the outside.

Good advice, but I still like to flood the cracks with CA.

In the first picture of the burl there is an open crack close to the opening and now it is actually overlapping. I thought it was dry but I guess not.

I recall seeing video of a turner who did very flat bowls, not plates, but shallow bowls, and he expected that a certain number would split at some point. I guess that's just the way it is with wood, there are so many internal tensions that they thus pull apart. But that takes nothing away from the beauty of what you'created.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Now I remember why I bought a lathe [and then another].

Nice, really nice job.

The reason I have what you want is, I never lent it out before.

Scraps are a myth.
