Figured I’d post my finished turning projects that I’ve learned with since I’ve been doing it for a few weeks, the first pic is my most recent one(tonight) to my first a couple weeks ago. Most recent is just a little bowl from fbe was the thinnest piece I’ve done, still thick compared to most stuff though. Tried making a vase out of an old barnwood beam but couldn’t get it secure enough so just made it as a candle holder. Next is a bowl from walnut and maple, also tried turquoise inlay for the first time since I had recently bought some and wanted to try. Other is another bowl from the same stuff but was my first bowl attempt. First actual try turning (besides a mallet i kinda did by myself) was a little bottle stopper shaped like a wine glass.

These are some nice turnings for only doing it for a few weeks. Nice work and have fun. It’s addictive.

You are being sucked into the vortex, but isn’t it fun.
