Still playing around with my lathe putting off larger projects since the shop is a mess and I just wanted to do a little woodworking. Turned a walnut version of this a couple days ago and tonight did one of a mystery piece of scrap I had laying around. Still glued to scrap so i can spray it with urethane while spinning. Makes for a nice even coat and easy buffing.

Nice project. You cut a lot of air that way.

Cheers, Jim

Thanks guys. Wish I knew what species of wood it is. It is really dense and the grain is beautiful. I think I’ll try making a spoon with the rest of the chunk I cut that from. Yes it is a lot of air cutting doing these rectangular plates. It’s harder than I thought it would be to turn that very outside without chipping or chatter. If you’ve done any square turning I’d love to hear any tips you have.

Have your say...
