My First Bowl (Fail) - Wood Turning Without A Chuck

In this video I make my first (and second) bowl on the lathe as I start to get a bit more experience with wood turning using a face plate as I don't yet have a chuck for the lathe. And I learned loads!  The first bowl wasn't very successful,it all went wrong near the end, but I'm very happy with how the second one turned out.  The wood I think is salvaged mahogany, but I'm not sure.  I had a lot of fun.
