Ok so according the the LumberJocks counter it has been 1071 days since I posted my blog about acquiring a lathe. In that blog I posted that I could not wait to post a project made on it. Well it seems I could wait quite a while. However, I finally made something that could sit out in the open (I have been doing some other playing around the past week or so).
I present my first turned project on my own lathe. The wife and my daughter both like it enough that I will be leaving it upstairs somewhere.This is made from Beech (Fagus sylvatica).. one of the few trees I remember the correct latin name for from my classes. I have more and will plan to use it in the future. I am pretty excited about getting my lathe set up and looking forward to using it and posting more projects in the future. I sat this afternoon and watched one of the Richard Raffan videos I got from the library and some things I have been pondering started to make some sense. Hopefully I can put that information to some good use soon.
Thanks for looking.
