Turning out the inside of the bowls is usually fun. The forces on the tiny spigots are so great that if you don't take it very gently and slowly, you spend a lot of time turning new spigots onto the blanks because the last one has sheered off. Grain that runs across the width of the bowl is the most difficult, but results in a beautiful end product, just as it does in larger bowls.
