Caught the turning bug at Easter. This is a piece of Myrtle I bought at a wood turning exhibition along with a Mini Lathe. Never had so much fun. A lot of firewood to make this.
2nd photo is a piece of Australain Paperbark. Cut a branch of our tree when I need something to practice on.
Wood was still wet when I tried to put some polish on. Learn by your mistakes. Another lesson was learnt on this one, “don’t complete the turning when wood is green. This has since split at the top, but the ring is still complete.
