Walnut Cup with Lid

Hello fellow Lumberjocks. Just finished another project (#3). A wood cup with a lid made from a piece of Walnut log from my backyard. Learned a little more with this project, still having trouble using bowl gauges to hollow out the cup. Due to the slip of the bowl gouge I had to shorten the height of the box because of a large divit out of the lip. Consequently, the lid does not fit as tight as I would like, but should do better next time.

I think it came out nicely.
That gouge slip was a learning tool that you can use to your advantage.
Nice job.

Nice project, turned out nicely. The good news is that you are exactly where everyone who has ever turned on a lathe was at one time – the beginning. Hang in there and you will really turn out some great pieces. The more you turn, the better you will get. You are off to a great start though.
