« Part 7: Turned my first black walnut bowl... ice cream bowl? Part 8 of Journey into Woodturning series Part 9: 2 Pens & a Lathe! Twice the fun at one time! »

I think I’ve pushed the lathe a little too far, BUT… failure turned to success! The tool rest began giving out and coming loose and I discovered I was using the roughing gouge improperly.

Got the tool rest fixed and finished turning a smaller project that became a potpourri box. It was a little expensive and I found out after the fact, I could have easily done it for much cheaper. Live and learn… boy am I learning. The feedback has been great, keep them coming.
