My Son got a lathe for christmas and has turned quiet a few bowls in the last month. He’s 14 and has picked it up pretty quick. He’s also been wanting to start making you tube videos, as he spends a lot of time watching other woodworker’s stuff. Im impressed at how good it turned out as it was his first effort at any kind of video production. In the 8 min video below he goes through the process from preparing the log (pear tree) to final sanding of the small bowl.

I haven’t turned any thing in over 25 years.
I just picked up a used Shopsmith for the drill press but this video just turned on the light that I now have the tool to make some simple bowls and the like.
Thanks great first video.
