Why am I just now finding out how much fun this is!
Ok so I started taking a wood turning class three weeks ago. Man I look forward to Tuesday night like it was Christmas now. I have never in my life been more excited about something. Except when my wife said yes 25 years ago! Oh yeah and I suppose you have to count when she gave birth to my four daughters. But nothing else tops this I swear!
I have always wanted to turn wood or even metal for that matter as long as I can remember. But never had the opportunity to do so. Until now that is. All I can say is look out trees a new turning monster is on the loose!
So I been in this class for three weeks now and I have completed three projects one each night. The first was a Bud Vase then a Bowl and finally last Tuesday we did a Saucer.
So here are some pictures and I want you to be honest with me on how I did. No holding back.
I buffed them with Tripoli and White Diamond buffing compounds. Then waxed them with Carnauba wax.
Bud Vase made of Mesquite.
My first project actually my first turning ever.
