I got a piece of Imbuia 450mm x 150mm x 70mm and couldn’t really decide what to do with it as it was too small for anything else really so I decided to try my hand for the 1st time at turning a small bowl, I’m not a wood turner so this was a challenge for me. The bowl is Imbuia, the lid Beech and the finial is wallnut. Finished in homemade Danish oil. Thanks for looking at my project.

Thanks a lot Ron, really appreciate it. It does have a few flaws though, the lid isn’t as snug fitting as I would’ve liked and the sanding on the inside and finial isn’t up to standard, but Im happy overall.

A beautiful example of what a person can do when he wants to, something to be proud of

Thanks a lot Dick, the credit really goes to the woodturning guys on this forum, without reading their comments and watching the clips I would’ve been lost. For me this is what LJ is about, noobs like me learning from the pro’s, so, many thanks to all of you.

For the first time you did far better than most of us did.

Looks great. Now you will become addicted to turning.

Thanks Les, yes I must admit it was great fun and I have about same size offcut left from the Imbuia so I’ll definitely have another go at it.

If that’s your first turned bowl, you’re off to a great start. I love the softness of the lines.
