Woodworking has been my hobby for a number of years. I started with bird houses and over the years graduated to furniture. I bought a lathe a few years ago and never looked back, I am hooked.

I am glad to see you among my buddies and thanks for your comments.
I have seen many cornered bowls and platter but not with six corners, new line for me.
Very nice.

hey i see you turn some purpleheart, I’m working on my 2nd purple bowl. Have you noticed any reactions to the dust? I found out the hard way, my eyes turned purple and had respiratory problems. Now I wear the mask and goggles, but it still effects me. What do you use for protective equipment?
I love the wood though, I sanded out the first one to 2000 grit, and a light danish oil, and it came out with an amazing mirror finish, one of the best bowls I’ve ever done.

keep on turning

Hey Mike, I don’t recall having any reaction to PH, but I do use a dust collector when I am turning. I have found the dust collector to be a tremendous help, in pulling the dust away from me. Now I don’t sneeze during my turning sessions. I will have to try your 2000 grit and danish oil tip. Thx
