Figured it was about time I started putting some of my stuff up. This is Santos Mahogony, textured and then tinted with black trans tints. My first offset turning. I was a little intimidated at first. Now I can’t wait to try again with a new idea I had while making this one.

Very impressive. But the photographing of it is on par with the piece made. Awesome job on both.

I am new to turning, so I don’t know what offset turning is. I am looking forward to seeing your next post. Beautiful bowl !
