While cutting firewood, I came across a piece I couldn’t resist turning. From one section I turned a dish and bowl, insect holes and all. Thanks for looking!

Reminds me of the rock formations you see in New Mexico. Nicely done.

Hello SGV,
looks rely nice I want to start turning any advice
advice I would offer as you get started is to take either a class or workshop on turning if possible. If this isn’t possible, get a good video so you can see how to turn and start with good technique. I like the Richard Raffan videos.
