Very nice. Especially for week 1! :-)

Here is a video series that helped me a lot. 6 Days of beginning woodturning projects.

Nice Job, Hows, the sharpening going? I’m still doing a lot of honing in between and avoiding the grinding. Tool wise the lathe is the cheapest part of this hobby.

I’m Just starting out too and I did a few weed pots. Turned them off center so It kept a little bark on the outside. I got good reviews for Honey dippers. I”m still getting too many catches to try a hollow form.

Thanks. I’m sharpening mostly with a wet stone, but I’ve had to grind the roughing tool after some of the beatings I’ve put it though. My first set of tools are a 5-piece mini set ($35 from Amazon), so I don’t feel too bad grinding them. Was really tempted to invest in a small round carbide tool, but $60 for a single tool gave me pause. I’ll keep trying to improve my technique with steel chisels. I’ve found some YouTube videos that have helped a lot—here’s one I liked on a basic bowl ( https://youtu.be/Nv1FBbh8PFM ). When tear outs are a concern I switch to a scraper.
