MickeyD and I picked up a used lathe, thanks to LumberJock Big_Bob. I have never used one before and so I started by cutting wrapped boards and fall offs and gluing them together for turning stock. Dang this lathe turning is addicting! …spooky too, in that a couple flew off the lathe with some nasty force!

Picture 6 – 3 ¼” x 5 ¾” Poplar, Black Walnut and Padauk with wipe on poly

PS Big-Bob you have created another woodworking vise for me!
Not a scrap of wood is safe from me! ; )

Very nice. I like them all. How come your table saw isn’t all covered in rust like mine?

Very nice turnings, turning is really addicting. It is a little scary also,you just need to learn to stand out of the line of fire both in front of and behind the lathe,especially when you first turn it on with a piece in a chuck, then your all good. have fun.

Very nice Turnings! I don’t own a lathe but I used to use one in school, but that was so long ago I forgot how to use one. :)

Seeing all this great work on here I hope to get one soon. Thanks for sharing.

Now you know why they call woodturning the addiction. Great job!

The tablesaw doesn’t get rusty because Jed waxes it and we live in the desert. Any moisture in the air gets blown away in the wind :) I’m glad you finally posted the bowls. Now I can use them.
