Mmmmmmmmm.....walnut!  Nice turnings!

I just really love working with walnut. They weren’t cheap blanks to start with but Boy do they look good. I did get a little tear out in the smaller bowl but I think it is just from my inexperience. All I have right now are the easy wood rougher and finishing tool. Still need some more practice.

Try www.woodturner.org for lots of information on turning.  They have a listing of local clubs which are great for learning the "how-to" of turning.  I know of turners who have a collection of chucks so they don't have to change chucks for different operations for turning.  BTW, nice bowls.  Some of the members of our club belong to at least two other clubs.
