Well, I got my new lathe in Nov., 2011. And since then I have not done anything else, but turn. Yes, I am addicted.

Kidding aside this bowl is made out of Olive and finished with Mineral Oil. It is about 6” in diameter and 5” tall.

Sorry you have the wrong web site. Turnaholics is two pages down the internets.
Because I didn’t want to put kidding aside yet. :-)

Nice bowl, and the hollowing job looks well done. I like the bowl and I like the way you sign it.

When I first got my lathe that’s all I did was turn. Now I am back to doing other stuff, mainly because or the inspiration I have gotten becoming a member on LJ’s.
I hope to someday find a piece of olive wood. Doesn’t seem that common up in the northwest USA.

Thanks for sharing.

I am going to cut down an Olive tree from my front yard—the pigeons are leaving such a mess feeding on the olives—it just has to go—thats my story and I’m sticking to it—don’t worry the wood will not go to waste
