I’m new to LumberJocks… and new to wood turning too, for that matter.
This is project #4 for me; inspired by the design in a Southwest style area rug in our home. Lots of pieces in this one: 337 to be exact.
Turned out OK for a beginner!
I’m pretty sure these projects are addictive. I’m beginning to understand why my father said, after he retired: “I need to go get a job so I can get some rest!” :-)
Wow! I didn’t realize what a resource I had found when I discovered Lumberjocks. Thanks for the kind comments.
As an afterthought, I’m adding a link to a time lapse video I made the day I turned this bowl (which video was also an afterthought—never had done that before—and certainly never figured I’d actually post it anywhere.) I hope I’m not exposing too many amateurish techniques (please feel free to make suggestions!), and remember the old adage: “A cluttered shop is a happy shop!” (Don’t know if that really is true, but that’s my story and I’m sticking to it.) Here’s the link: https://youtu.be/289eBaNAy2Q
This is No Bull!
—My neighbor was pretty impressed when I told him I’d entered a bowl in the County Fair—until he realized it wasn’t spelled “B-U-L-L”.
Still, I did all right. I think the prize money is $5. I’ve always told my wife that someday my woodworking would pay off!
