Over the holidays I got a Jet lathe, so I have been busy turning. This is my first bowl made of Jobillo that I got while in Hawaii over the holidays. The finish is General Fishes salad bowl finish. Pictures really don’t do it justice because of my crappy camera.

Very nice first effort. Even though the camera is not what you would like, more views, especially the inside of the bowl would be appreciated. Welcome to the addictive world of turning.

I’d like to see some pics of the inside too. From what can be seen it looks like it turn out very well. A lot better than my first.

That is professional quality compared to my first attempts. Keep up the great work as I am sure you will. Just remember, you can’t turn EVERY piece of wood you see so stop eyeing the dining room table,haha.

Nice Job for a first. I am looking forward to doing some turning later this year. Nice wood, cool stuff to work with as I was able to pick up some at local store.

That’s significantly better than my first bowl turned out! Good on you sir :)

A shot of the inside would be neat to see
