Great job. I haven’t done any wood turning with walnut yet but looking forward to the day i do. Is it easy to work with or pain in the rear?

Thanks Jay, it does have some nice grain differentiation.

Tom: It turns easily, but it’s not my favorite wood to work with. Tear out is pretty easy to make happen, the acid in the wood dulls tools quickly and it is very unforgiving when trying to get a good finish. The slightest scratches or bruised areas that wouldn’t show on other woods stand out very well against walnuts color.

Even so, it’s a pretty wood.

I have not done any turning either, although a lathe did come with the Shop Smith. I’ll most likely try it sometime. Beautiful bowl!
