I just turned my first useful piece today! It’s a pen/pencil holder. I had this branch of what I believe is Live Oak laying around for a while so I decided to break out our lathe and try it out. It turned out pretty well I think. It has some really cool looking spalting lines in it and neat grains.
I drilled the hole in the middle with a 2” forstner bit on my drill press because I didn’t know how else to hollow it out. Oh well, it worked.
Finished it with wipe on poly and I’m already using it!
Anyone know if I’m right on the type of wood? If not, it’s Live Oak… haha
