Today was a very productive day. I had a some time to ruff turn my big black walnut blank and put it on the shelve to dry completely. There also was some time to finish my walnut root bowl and the small cherry bowl. I’m still improving my skill set with every bowl that’s finish. I must say if I look back at the first day I started turning and successfully broke a tool whiles impaling a peace of test wood into my garage wall. I’m much more comfortable with the different speed of the lathe and when to use what but still have tons to learn.

There will be a post on the project that was finished a little later. It’s the work of a amateur so please be kind with the critiques. I hopefully will produce better work as time and training goes along. My lathe is a Laguna product and it a awesome machine as I have probably mentioned before. Very happy with it and will do a separate review on it later.
