I was playing around with making a little video. My technique needs some work, but it was fun…

Doing my turnings this way would take all the fun out of the lathe work but it was interesting to watch your progress evolve! Thanks for giving another perspective on turning!

I thought you were going to teach me how to actually turn a bowl in 45 seconds. I’m very much into instant gratification, you know? :-)

I think that I had a flashback watching this…....... Great stuff, loved the shavings, just about how my shop looks.

Phew, a piece of timber, some “strobe efects” I blinked & whamo there it was. I think you should go from transition to “transformer man” LOL.
Hey a load of fun that one, great stuff :)

I’m not sure what price I would put on it. The piece is 15cm x 4cm. I have a small slab of tiger maple that I’m going to set it on, and I might add a wire cheese cutter. It was meant to be a gift but I’m guessing I could get $40 for the bowl and cheese board? I don’t think the bowl would be worth much alone.
