Jubiiiiiiiiii…......... My first wood turning ever! And my first wood lathe.
I had a offer the other day that I could not resist, a 1 year old lathe with some tools, at a good price (app half).
So it was time to take my first steps into this.
A walk in the forest where they just took down some trees, and I had some fresh wood to try with.
And what a pleasure, to see this piece of wood transform into something usefull, and at the same time, smell the wood, and be coverd in wood chips! I loved every moment. Even it’s not a expensive fancy bench, I have the feeling, that it will give me plenty of quality hours in the years to come.
For now I have a new mallet for my wooden chisels.
