So, this is my first turning project on my new Harbor Freight lathe. Not being familiar with turning and not being one to follow convention I decided to do something uniquely challenging. I saw some turners on YouTube do what they called inside out turning. I said to myself, self, I have lots of scrap why not go for it. If I fail I will still have scrap, just smaller pieces :).
I don’t know exactly what this is but that isn’t the point. The point is that I succeeded, after a fashion, to do this style turning without blowing it up. I will say, that visualizing before hand what the final product will be can mess with your mind. I had the idea of making a Christmas ornament when I started and wound up with this lol!!
I think I will give it another go, maybe I will actually wind up with a Christmas ornament next time.
Thanks for looking guys and gals,
Merry Christmas to you and yours
