Here a are few of the bowls I’ve been making. Didn’t want your guys thinking all I can do is flatwork! Granted these are simple projects but I have not turned for years and these are starter projects.
These are some of the exotics. Spalted maple, brazilian rosewood and african cocobolo. I learned the hard way that cocobolo is HIGHLY allergic stuff!! 4 days after making the bowl,(bottom right hand side) I got a rash which I thought was poison ivy. Turns out, (pun intended) it was the cocobolo. The rash was on my face, arms and hands. It stayed on my hands and between my fingers for about 4 weeks. Athough absolutely beautiful, easy to work and turns great, I’m staying away from it.
The hobby is fantastic and I find it a great way to wind down at the end of the day.
