First, please feel free to leave tips on how to improve.
I received a block of wenge from my wife as a gift. She wanted me to try out bowl making on her lathe. I have been trying to learn the basics of furniture and box making. It was a lot of fun making the bowl. It is finished with Shellawax. The biggest thing I learned is that I really have a lot to learn. I definitely need to see how to hold the tools and how to sharpen better. The bowl gouges are too long for the sharpening jig I made for the grinder. The bowl was supposed to be about an inch taller, but that changed when a chunk flew off while trying to get the sides right. Oh well, that’s the way it goes.
Thanks to all who have helped my wife and I learn more about turning.
