Here are a few of my recent turnings that keep me occupied in the cold winter weather.

The larged bowl is Apple wood as are the two smaller bowl in front of it. The bright bowl in front is maple but the camera flash washed out the color. The two shallow bowls are walnut the boxes above are big leaf maple on the left and on the right apple wood with a Madrone lid. All have walnut oil for the “bling”. The apple bowls have a salad bowl finish and the rest are just polished with a paste wax over the oil. The apple bowl is 10” in diameter.

Beautiful work Les. Nothing like throwing something on the lathe and giving it a shape.

Nice work Les, I like all the types of wood you used. It’s warming up now, I’ll be getting back to the lathe soon.
