Thanks everyone for the comments. I appreciate it. Do yourself a favor and take the time to make these. I have been turning several years and the concept of square on a lathe is very challenging and a lot of fun to attempt. I started out by making a few small plates and am working bigger bowls now and will eventually try a triangle shape.

Nice work, I just started turning. I imagine the hit and miss if the square shape is challenging. Where did you get that curved tool rest?

Have your say...
