I like the transition detail where the top fits into the box. Nice job.

Nice! What kind of lathe do you use? What do you think are important features in a lathe?

thank you all
Roz: My lathe is a Harbor Freight tool. I forget the model. It has a 6” clearance between the bed and the spindle. they call this a 12”swing (meaning the largest bowl or platter I can turn is 12”). Most important features? Weight and stability if like me you are shaping firewood. Seriously I’m such a newbie but imho the best lathe is the one you got. Turn Turn Turn and it’s like throwing rocks. You will learn from doing and being persistent about it. I bought this little lathe at a garage sale because I didn’t know if I would enjoy it. Frankly I find it fascinating. I’m hoping to get a newer one soon. I will be looking for weight, capacity over the bed and power mostly.
