Very nice.

Many years ago I went to a 2 day seminar on woodturning and that got me started. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.

Nicely done, now you’re surely hooked. I’m sure we’ll be seeing much more from you in the future!

I do enjoy turning. I’ve been given an old myford lathe from my dad, but it needs a new headstock. I’m struggling to find one for this particular model. It will definitely be a part of my new shop though.

I’ve also done a couple of rings and a bangle for my wife. I’ll post them soon for your opinions

All three turnings look great. I really need to fire up my lathe. Thanks for posting.
