Remember the days when you could put a project on LJ’s and still see if for a few days! Now, it only stays on for a few hours! Whew…. Anyway, got a new lathe, Jet 1220vs for Christmas and have been turning different things on it. The first bowl is made from walnut scrap, scraped mostly for the sap wood on it. 8 inches wide, with some nice grain in it. The lid is brass and paid $2 for it at a used knick knack place. It will make a nice potpourri dish, except the wife nabbed it! The second tea candle turning is from a long piece of oak skid material. Didn’t know what it would look like until it was turned. Picked this piece of that board due to two knot holes in it. Wanted to see how it would turn. Finished both pieces in conversion varnish, 2 coats. Thanks for looking.

Great turnings. Love the sap wood on the walnut and the knots give the candle holder a lot of charector.

Nice shapes and finish. Great use of recycled brass cover and great use of scraps!

Keep it up.

Nice work. I like the gentle curve on inside of the walnut piece.

That’s a sweet bowl with the lid. I really like the way you finished the bottom foot and the lip that secures the lid.
