Ok so I finally got my lathe operating! I got an old Grizzly that had some issues. After replacing the pulleys and power switch, it seems to work pretty well. I’m really enjoying turning now. This is the first bowl off of it. This is Panga wood. It has these strange/peculiar light yellow spots randomly throughout the wood. This was not visible before turning and far more defined after sanding and finishing. It was also porous. I used some InLace I had for the turquoise rings (actually the color is Lacey). It’s finished with gloss lacquer. I took some pictures with and without flash. I can never seem to get the right light for a good picture.

Most of us struggle with photography. Either way it’s a beautiful piece.

Beautiful work. Easy trick for the lighting – use your flash, but put a white tissue over the flash. It diffuses and softens the light to kill most glare and look a bit more natural.

Welcome to Lumberjocks. The rings are InLace It’s pretty easy to do. The drying time is a bit slow. I’ve heard of guys creating their own by crusting stone or glass and mixing it with resin. I have not yet tried it myself.
