Turned on 5 axis. I know, the plural of axis is axes, but it doesn’t look right.

Maple with Tung oil finish.

I always wondered how those are made, and you did yours with 4 axis!

Good job, good looking project!

No, I would say 5… the 4 off center ones to do the outside, and one centered to do the inside and shape the foot.

That said, very, very nice.

Sweet little bowl Hairy. You’re keeping that new lathe very well. Not even a chip of paint off it yet.
