These are my starting creations as a wood turner. I recently bought a lathe and tools off a guy for cheap and started turning. In all but picture number 5, the wood is Locust wood, and then I found Ash for the 5th picture. The wood has come out of my parents firewood pile so it has aged for about 3 years in logs and then I cut them up and get these. I find that he hardest part for me is finishing the bowl. These area all coated with paste wax, left to dry, then 3-4 coats of spray lacquer. I am seemingly happy with the finish but its not exactly what I am looking for. Any advice you guys could give would be GREAT. Thanks for looking and all the help I have received from many of you.
Dimensions vary; Pic 1 = 4 in w x 2.5 t; Pic 2-5 = 5 in w x 2.5 t
Hope you enjoy
