I’m a new turner and addicted big time. Many fellow Lumberjocks warned me of this. I’m already looking g for a full size lathe. My jet 12-21 Variable speed has been great, but time for full size.
This is my 100th Project on Lumberjocks, hard to believe as I realized this. I don’t post all of them being how many cutting boards, Skateboards or pens can I show?
This bowl is made of Iron Bark, and with help of my mentor Ken Folstrom. Without his help and guidance I would still be making sticks. Each time I gain a little more knowledge and confidence. My death grip lessons and I dance with the lathe just a little more gracefully.
The Bowl is almost 20 inch diameter and 9 inches high. I love natural edge bowls and most of them I make are this style. Before I started turning I had no idea this would be what I loved. I sanded it to 600 grit and applied 5 coats of Walnut oil. I use the wood turners wonders sanding system.
Thx for looking as always and all comments welcome.
