Gloves on a lathe are a bad idea if you like the use of your hands.

Bob: A great job on the bowl. That was and is a very nice looking chunk of maple.

Looks like you are enjoying your new lathe, they are addicting I know. Helmet is looking good…Ger21 I am glad it wasn’t just me that found this image disturbing. From a metalworking background it is a huge safety violation to wear gloves and loose clothes near anything that is spinning, maybe on a wood lathe the belts would slip or the motor power out before it ripped your fingers/ hand/ arm off though. I have seen other posts of LJs with gloves and lathes… Be careful and safe my friends.

Great looking bowl and makes attractive attire as well. I might try something like that the time the wife goes on a rampage.

At least your wife told you to place it on your head. After my first big bowl I asked wife where she wanted me to place it. I still walk funny.Nice job and keep having fun.
