After some successes and many failures on my lathe, I decided to take a course in the fundamentals of woodturning through one of the local shops. It was a 2-day class and we covered a lot of things. The final project, as pictured, was a bowl. My first go at it, a nice simple design, and I’m pretty pleased. We also made a chalice (cup), a knob (which I broke in the final phase of it, so it ended up being a long-necked knob, italian as our instructor Terrry G said), and a spindle which taught all the important techniques of parting, cove and bead creation, etc.
Not the most advanced projects out there, but a nice start and worth sharing.
I learned a lot from the course and feel much safter and more confident at my lathe. I’d definitely recommend it for anyone who’s ever wanted to hone their skills/
