These are great for your first turnings. Keep it up!

As for the splitting, that will happen when you turn some wood that isn’t sufficiently dry.

Nice job! But I really hope you were wearing a mask when turning that pressure treated piece! I can’t imagine that the chemicals inside would be good for ya.
