This is my first shot at woodturning. Made a small mallet (or gavel), two bowls and a random turned piece of purpleheart. The small bowl is sycamore. The larger one is canary wood. The mallet handle is olivewood and the head is maple. Overall, really fun projects.

Canary wood looks nice, think it is time to move on to turning Pens?

Nice Whammer. Great job starting out, look as good as some I’ve seen from folks saying they are old hands at it.

Thanks for posting.
