This turning was made from a green big leaf maple round that was partially spalted. Since it was my first turning I wasn’t really concerned with the finished product, only learning how to properly sharpen my chisels, learn turning technique, and get a feel for my lathe. I made my blank with a chainsaw, and bandsaw. Next, I roughly shaped the outside and hollowed to about 1” thick walls. I dried the rough turning in the oven. I turned the final form, the walls are 3/8”, and uniform in thickness. It’s sanded to 400 and finished with paste wax. I have quite a bit to learn, but I am looking forward to turning dry wood next time.
