First pot I ever turned.

I finally got a descent lathe. Now I have a problem. I have not cured wood ready for turning. I am behind the curve and I have a lot of work to do. I have been hauling around this cedar log from a tree I cut though for about 9 years. Only problem is that it was a young tree when I fell it, so here I have created my first little cedar pot.

Enjoy!

Really good for a first ever. Congratulations and may the fun begin.
I wish my first one looked as good as that. I love the shape.
Thanks for sharing,
Bob.

That’s cool. I live on the west (wet) coast were cedar is every where…but I’ve never turned it. Well done.

First piece? Wow, that’s nice ! Did you put oil on it? or is that still dry in the pic?

This is eastern red cedar; not sure but it could be southern red cedar. This cedar has a lot of silica in it so it dulls tools rapidly and you can see sparks every now and again. I believe that western cedar is a bit softer but both smell very nice!!!

Thanks for your comments.
