OK not the first turning! it has been 40 years ago in shop class. My father in law gave me his home made lath. Got to post pics of it, all wood and huge. you can turn 9 foot with about a 20 inch swing. He would turn porch posts.
figured to try a segmented bowl first. oak and walnut was what i had. now I have to do more turning with other woods and nicer designs. comments on this good or bad as I know nothing about turning.
