I got a new (used) Shop Fox lathe about 6 months ago, but didn’t really get around to seriously using it until a few weeks ago. Man o man, this thing is more fun than a barrel of monkeys…. I just can’t stop.
I was excited about laminating a bunch of different woods together and see what happenes. I had alot of fun, but after I got all that out of my system, I think I’ll just stick to turning some classier items out of Walnut etc.
The second bowl is made from 1 board of Mineral Stained Poplar, cut and stacked. I like it alot.
The first, whatever it is, is made from 1 Cedar board cut and stacked. I really like the way Cedar looks after a poly finish, mellow red and cream colors.
Anyway, I take criticism with no problem, so let me have it on this and the next couple of posts.
