As most here know, I am new to turning. I now have just a few projects under my belt. I have to tell ya, I wish I had gotten a lathe years ago. I just can’t tell you how much fun I am having. Maybe some day I’ll get as good as some of the turners here… :-)

Here is a little goblet I made today. The wife asked if I could make a couple of little ones to go with the water jug she picked up when we were in the Dominican Republic earlier this year.

Red Oak, 2 1/2 ” in diameter by about 4” tall. Two coats of General Salad Bowl Finish. Will put a couple more on tomorrow.

This was a real fun little project, and it turned out better than I had thought it would. Might be the first real project I’m happy with….. Bottom line was,,,,, It was fun.

Comments welcome.

Now you are hooked the next step is collecting “chunks” of wood for turning. I seem to have accumulated more than I will ever use but can’t put a single piece in the fire place because it may be just what I need for my next turning. I build all kinds of wood working projects but turning seems to be the most fun.
