I have tried my hand at turning. I hope to become more comfortable over the lathe as time goes on. Kindlingmaker glued up several different woods for me. They were all scrap wood. There is padauk, redwood and poplar. The bottle stopper was turned from a poplar dowel. I used tung oil as a finish except for the bottle stopper which just has a wax finish. I used a wire to burn the lines in the two poplar bowls. I had fun turning, but I must confess I had apprehension when I had to go deep inside the tall bowl. Using scrap wood takes away the concern of wasting expensive wood, but you still want something nice to show for your effort.
Thanks for looking.
