Is anyone else lucky enough to have a wife or significant other who gives them turning wood for their birthday? This is a 15 inch platter made from a piece of a 200 pound Myrtlewood log my wife got me.

-- to turn or not to turn, is that really a question?

Not only did she buy a turning log, she picked one with incredible figure. Now, you are on the hook to do something equally incredible for her birthday. ;)

Damn that is some nice wood. Never used myrtlewood, but I love how it looks on projects I see here.

I’m fortunate. It’s a fairly local wood for me. I only have to drive about an hour to go to a lumber mill as opposed to spending large amounts of money on small pieces I can spend large amounts of money on large pieces

I’m still waiting on the lathe first, THEN the wood.

In any case, that’s a beautiful piece.
