Since I bought my lathe I have been making pens and an occasional practice pieces. So this marks my first real attempt at creating something on the lathe.
It’s about 9” tall and about 4” wide. The shape is free form inspired by many vases I have seen before.
The material is Walnut and Maple with a finish of 1 part shellac, 1 part boiled linseed oil and 1 part denatured alcohol.
I bored out the center with a 1 7/8” forstner bit to get a head start.
I love my new lathe…
Thanks for looking!
