I have seen plywood turnings,which i have done with average success.This old piece of OSB was just a way to kill time and try something new to me .I’m pleased with the results.
Thank You

You SHOULD be pleased. You’ve properly selected a shape to avoid the flat part showing. Well done.

Who woulda thought, a wood as ugly as OSB, could be “turned” into something so beautiful! Great Job.

Quite a trick ! Amazingly beautiful when you consider the source. Most OSB I have seen is roughish on one side. Did you smooth things up before your glue up ?

I have attempted an OSB bowl, but yours turned out much nicer.

Very nice!! Would never thought that OSB could be of any use! I don’t even like using the stuff in home building.
