« Part 5: EPIC FAIL.... on many fronts. Part 6 of Journey into Woodturning series no next part

My first successful box. Still not perfect but darn close. I used a soft maple kin dried bowl blank.

The exotic wood from the first box from amazon was depleting. The second box was all small stuff. So, I went big and got some bowl blanks to push the machine and myself.

There were a few challenges I faced, but in the end I think the box turned out great. I’m new to turning and although this was turned awhile ago using a roughing gouge on end grain, I have since discovered the proper way to use the roughing gouge.

Here is this week’s video: First successful box turning with soft maple
