These are a few of my latest turnings on the lathe. I’m stil fairly new to the lathe but I’m having a ball. The first is a cherry bowl. A neat thing about this one is that you can shine a light into it and a ring of fire glows right above the base. The second is a pecan goblet that is full of worm holes. The third is from an old hunk of spruce driftwood salvaged from the lake. The first one is a bowl from sourwood. (Soryy about the photos, my autofocus is having problems)
