I had seen a really cool plate with winged corners and wanted to try and make one. The first is made of walnut trim board I had from 10 years ago. The second is made from some mulberry. I have also included a picture of another bowl I made out of a piece of wood from the fire pit pile. I don’t know what kind of wood it is, but it has some really cool worm marks in it. From the last picture you can see how I turned these. I was given this lathe, it was missing the bar at the bottom as well as some bolts to tighten things. I got it up and running and have had no luck finding chucks for it, so just use the two pieces as shown in the picture. With the walnut one, you can see how imperfect it is, even a hole in the center which I filled with sawdust. The mulberry plate is better in the center as I measured more accurately to avoid the hole in the center.
