Where’s the treads?????
Of all woodworking genres, bowl turning has never caught my eye. I have a heap of bowl blanks (bought at the wood show when I must have been smoking something), however, I refuse to give myself to the Dark Side..

Ducky I’ve turned maybe 25 or so parts for furniture and a couple a bowls.It’s quite fun and is more of a use you eyes and feel type of building, if that makes any sense.

Nothing against turning… just bowls… Bowls never caught my fancy and still doesn’t.
Furniture is good. Turning a BOOMBY is better. I love to turn (and not just a “new leaf”).
I make(d) a lot of pens, however, until I get off my rrrrs and set up a proper WEB site, one can only make so many and give to friends until that same one starts to feel the pull of the freeloaders and start sell some for at least a shekel more than break even. That’s why I deviated into toy models.
I also used to do a lot of turning for jigs and dust extraction connectors (as no 2 different branded 2.5” dust vac accessories fit each other), until…........... I bought a 3D printer. Now I can create couplers/connectors 1-2mm thick without break out and totally repeatable to about .1mm tolerances, which I have trouble matching with the skew.

Ducky now I understand.I couldn’t figure why you would buy a bunch a blanks then not have the tools to use them.Now I see the rest of the story.majuvla the turnings I’ve done are over a 35 year time span so no addiction at this time. LOLI seem to do things in spurts.I love to learn new things and try different stuff but once I get the hang of it and before I get any good I jump to something else. Don’t ask me why???
Dutchy surely not the Shop Smith. LOL
Ducky it’s funny how we all have different interests cause pen turning has never caught my interest, could be cause I write like a doctor I can’t even read my own writing..

Nice job, I like this one. Just curious, is the base and bowl separately made and joined? Or is it all one piece. .

Two piece, wasn’t thick enough so glued on for the base.Kind a does look like a single but the wood came from the same board.And thanks all for the great comments.
