The first pic was when the finish was still a little wet, thats why it pops out more than the others.

Im having a blast with this new lathe, Jet1221vs. It is just orders of magnitude better than the beginner ultra mini i was using.

This is more of the oak from the farm that my last square platter was from. I had the grand idea to make two bowl at once and make them fit, one as the base and one as the lid. There was a piece of walnut sitting on the bench that became the handle on the lid. I just turned a tenon on the bottom of the walnut piece that was the same size as the dovetail i had cut out for the chuck and CA glued it in there.

Funny, i accidentally got to try out a CA finish on the inside of the top because some started to drip out of the knot hole, and i had to hurry up and wipe it off and buff it out. It was CA thick, but it was still pretty easy to buff out, and it actually looks great in that little area. I will be trying that out again on a whole piece for sure. Super glossy and smooth and seemingly in a thin layer.

This piece is about 10” in diameter, each layer is about 2” tall, and the walnut adds another 1.5”

The walnut handle tops it off; big and easy to grab hold of. Nice job.
