Maple bowl blanks

This is a video of the simple process of going from a log to a wood turned bowl rough.  I saved some maple logs from the landfill and was excited about doing some green wood turning.  I cut the logs in half with my chainsaw (Husqvarna 2100c).  Then I cut them into a cylinder on the band saw.  Next, I rounded and squared up the blank on the lathe.  I used my scroll chuck as a tenon inside a mortise to hold the piece on the lathe.  I hollowed out the bowl and painted it with endsealer wax emulsion paint. Now they will dry for a year or so, and then I can finish them.
