This is just a photo instructable to show off the pretty bowl I made on a wood lathe.

It's not a step-by-step because as far as wood-lathe-bowl projects go, it's pretty basic- if you know the principles (which you should learn from someone in person if you can), I'm sure you can produce a similar result.

However, look how pretty it is! Learning the wood lathe is super fun, because since you use hand tools (special types of chisel), the process feels very hands-on. (As opposed to a digital-readout metal lathe.)

Perhaps this will inspire you to learn to use a wood lathe.

Oh, also: here's how to make the thread balls that are pictured in the bowl.
<p>Beautiful bowl. Nice work. Thank you for sharing.</p>
Good work! What type of wood did you use? This is a skill I am learning soon, I will let you know how it goes. We miss you!
I miss you guys too! Hope to see your wood lathe exploits. The bowl is maple.
