Some of the first bowls I made. Went down hill from there. Actually I got the wood off ebay. Nice cuts. Made these on a 46 dollar lathe I bought off ebay I sold recently, wish I had’nt, now I’m latheless while my Delta is getting repaired. mike

Mike go buy a OneWay lathe and when your Delta is back on line you can sell the Oneway. :>)

Nice looking bowls.

Only a temporary set back Mike. I am sure you will be back to turning faster than a speeding spindle.

Nice work Mike, the bowls came out great. I especially like the stemmed vessel. What did you use for a finish?

I just bought a Tulipwood bowl blank. I am taking inspiration from your turnings. I am also interested in what you finished with.
