Here’s how I spent my birthday.
I’ve been working the last few months with SWMBO, getting her up to speed and comfortable with her lathe. Doing some bowls etc. My last ones were done on her lathe, which is a little low for me.
Today I got a chance to actually use my lathe. Was wondering if it was going to turn on since it’s been sitting in the corner lonely :-)
I’m not sure, but think this was a piece of walnut, it was in the cutoff box and decided I would see what I could do with it. I sanded it to 1000, and have been putting coats of tung oil on it. Now that it’s finally warm enough to use it.
I added the day ender to give a reference of size to the goblet, and also to pay homage to the patron saint of my birthday St. Patrick. The glass of Irish at the end of a good day turning.
