Beautiful day today. Highs in the 70’s. So nice that I decided to play hokey from the office and hang out in the shop with the bay door and windows open. It’s hard to imagine that we had 9 feet of snow a few short weeks ago.
Anyway. Played around on the lathe today. Took a shot at turning my first bowl.
The mahogany piece that creates the stripe is 2 pieces. Sadly, the glue seem separated while the glue was drying. I never saw it until I started turning it. But over all, I’m not unhappy.
BTW, early on, the piece spun off the went airborne. It came down on top of my head. Seems screwing soft wood the the face plate with short screws wasn’t a good idea. So I remounted it with longer screws.
