Real nice looking turnings. I too would like to know the species of wood you are turning.

Very nice work! And welcome from a another fairly new comer.

What a beautiful place, Ireland. Last time I was there was during the Hurling championship… I was lucky some folks in the pub took the time to instruct me on its fundamentals….course after a few pints I was rooting at the wrong times but another pint or two and I was enjoying it more and more…lol

My grandfather came from Killarney…and build nice solid furniture from Killarney oak…

I’m overwhelmed by the response! It’s great to see there are a few interested in my work!
I used hazel for the bowls, it was a tree that fell down during a storm a few years ago, just outside the deck you can see in the photo.
The off centre goblet and the box were yew that was given to me by a friend, and the grecian urn was made from mahogany. the rest were pine.
Onwards and upwards!
