I know it’s not much, but it’s the first thing (besides a bottle quick bottle stopper) that I got to turn on the 1836 I got last month along with being the first bowl I’ve ever turned. It’s also the first time using HSS tools that I just finished the handles for last night. Pretty happy with the wood since it’s some spalted pecan I pulled out of the fire pile and rough tuned a month and a half ago in a class. I’ve never seen orange spalting before.

Nice work Rich, now I have to say you’ve gone and done it. You have fed the addiction and now you house will also be full of random bowls. LOL it’s a great change of pace from the woodworking side and I look forward to seeing some more.

Very nice job!

Please send me random samplings from your firewood pile, as has much nicer looking sticks than my own. ;^)

I actually have a few more good size chunks from this tree (got it for free of Craigslist) that are mushrooming… Sure there’s more spalting in there. You’d have to rough turn them and let them dry.

That is a good looking bowl Rich. I really need to get a lathe.

That is fabulous work. Really nice, and something i wish i could do. But so far i have not.

Now I have to go to google and check out what an 1836 lathe is – I think it is more than my old mind can handle to remember model no’s!

. OK, got it – wow, that is a nice and pricey Laguna machine.
. Congrats on such a nice addition.

Thanks. The 1836 is just a lathe model that Laguna makes. It can do up to 18” around and 36” long out of the crate.
