Am taking a 2-day lathe workshop and here is one of the two projects created today (day 1).
This plate is made of cherry. The other project, a bowl, is made of maple (green wood) and is drying before finishing it.

The photos aren’t the best ( I didn’t have time to do it justice).
Here’s Rick showing us how proud he is of his first project: (he brought the wood home to show me what the plate was cut from)

Very nice… nothing like my first piece off the lathe.
How did you sign it while it was turning? ;)

Nice plate! I think they call that, “chasing the pen,” to sign it so well when spinning. :)

Is there a rough edge on that bowl?
-- No piece is cut too short. It was meant for a smaller project.

Great plate. Seems like everyone here makes plates for their first project on a lathe. sigh! I was tickled to turn a small bat and a spindle. I haven’t gotten a plate made, yet.

I should have said that the course was through Chalet Woodcraft in Boston, Ontario.
the edge has a sloped bead-edge that goes down into a second rim.

Very nice for a first turning. I can see by the smile, that there’s going to be a lot more of these for us to see.

This is really great for a first turning. Looks like your getting your money’s worth in this class.
