My first bowl. I made it from yellow heart. The blank it came from was a 4×4x2 piece from Rockler. Wanted a small piece in the event something went wrong (fly off the lathe, hit me, go to hospital, etc.)

Finished it with OB Shine Juice mixture.

Good first bowl, nice finish, small was a good idea to start out.

Thank you! Now the wife wants a larger one, so I may try turning an 8” piece. Anything bigger, I will need abigger lathe (might not be a bad thing….)

Again, thank you!

Sweat little bowl I would like to turn some yellow heart someday. There is nothing like the feeling of not knowing whether something is going to fly off the lathe or not.

-- I love my lathe. It’s old, not too pretty and I don’t really know how to use it… Love it!

Thank you for the complement,, greatly appreciated. I have had the lathe for two months, and I am still getting used to it. Seeing those with the BIG lathes turn a 24”, or even larger, woulkd scare the $&”# out ofme.
