This is my first “real” wood turning project. My scroll chuck just arrived today, and this is what I’ve done so far. Eventually, the bowl will be parted off and a lid will be made from the remaining wood. Finish is mineral oil. It’s about 3” OD and will be about 2” tall (without lid).

A few side views:

I will probably have to let this sit for a while until my cole jaws show up. Guess I’ll have to go back to practicing on 2×4’s. ;)

Thanks for looking!

Yeah. The difference between the wood with and without the oil is astounding. I’m beyond pleased with the way this looks. Tickled, actually. :) Hopefully I don’t screw it up in the coming phases…. lol.
