I started turning projects Tuesday on my Jet 1220 lathe. The following are photos of 4 of 5 almost completed projects. I need to finish all of them. I’ve put tung oil on the walnut pieces but they’re not shining like I want so I need to research how to get a shine on top of a tung oil finish.
I turned a honey dipper first – no picture. It’s ok but boring.
Next I turned the awl followed by the bottle stopper (followed by another that blew off the lathe due to a catch) and finally a candle stick that I tried re-chucking the top to clean the bottom but the chuck left marks on the top and I gouged the bottom.
And here is my first bowl. Turned from a smallish log I salvaged when a tree was removed from the yard. Lots of problems with the bowl gouge catching which caused me to turn the bowl smaller than intended.
More bottle stoppers and another bowl on tap for gifts.
