Here’s a few turnings. I’ve turned quite a few projects including legs for a few vanities I’ve done. But these are the only pics of anything projecty. First one is red ceder, second (bowl) is alder, and the third is a combination of maple, walnut, mahogany, and purple heart. Sorry for the dust on the bowl, my maid quit. LOL

Nice turnings. I really like the grain pattern in the first picture. It lines up well with your shape. Thank you for sharing.

The combination of woods in #3 is unusual. Was it difficult to turn because of the different wood density and grain? They all look great.

The Cedar cup and the multi species cup are not finished. They are just polished. The center bowl has salad bowl finish and is usable. It was a little difficult to turn the multi species cup because the purple heart has it’s end grain exposed and it is much denser then the other wood. I believe it caught my blade a couple times, but I worked it out.
