Some of the first turnings I ever tried. Bowls are black walnut, wild cherry, spalted birch, osage orange. Goblet is Peruvian catahua.

Very nice…good form and nice grain…finish is very good I would suspect it to be carnauba or beeswax? I’ve seen some tung oil finishes that are close..and there are the salad bowl finishes that are similar…...I wouldn’t think those were first attempts….

Welcome to LJ’s there are a lot of turners here…from beginning on up…with lots of nice ideas and inspirations. You will like it here…nice folks and great help for pretty much every experience level and the whole gamut of woodworking crafts.

You have a real eye for turning. I like the distinctive style of your work. Isn’t Osage just a wonderful wood to turn. It comes off in long ribbons and feels like worm butter against the back of your hand. What part of the country are you in where you have Osage large enough to get turnable pieces from. Here in Lower Alabama or “L.A”, they grow the size of oaks. In the northern part of the state they are shrubs.

Hard to believe these are you “first’ pieces. They are great. I will assume you have a great teacher guiding your progress.
Keep up the work and welcome to LJ

I just agree with all the above. As Roz said you definitely have an eye for form (and the ability to produce it with your turning tools). All of these first pieces are top caliber work, firsts or not. Welcome to LJ. Send more our way!
