This is the first turning i have done in more then ten years. I haven’t had the time, money, or a place to do woodworking for so long. I’m so happy to have my woodshop going. So, It’s Myrtle , rubbed with Lemon oil.

Hopefully the picture is done right. Thanks for looking

This is very nice, Roy. You’ve picked a very nice wood for this bowl. Welcome back to woodworking.

Great bowl Roy. And thanks for posting the Myrtle – I just picked up a few boards from a friend and was curious about how it would finish. Looks like my next box project will be Myrtle. And Don, I will be interested in your opinion of my box – when it’s finished.

1st turning in 10 years? Must be a really s l o w lathe!

You should have not stopped turning. Now you have a lot of time to turn…so get turning! Nice, no I mean a GREAT job here Roy.

Nice bowl Roy. It looks like you have a little curl in the bottom also.
