Spalted Maple Bowl
This bowl was turned from a spalted maple log I got from some family friends, who had cut the tree down in their yard. It's around 6.5" in diameter, and 2" tall. I finished it with Mahoney's Walnut Oil.
Overall I like the shape of this bowl. I like the way it curves back...
I turned this little canister in shop class last year, I was following a similar design from an old magazine. It was a very fun project overall, though the glue up was quite time consuming. I can't say I'm much of a turner though ;)
I turned this large Mallet from a piece of Hard Maple from my firewood pile. It was supposed to be a practice turning piece, but I've since used it a lot and really like the weight and size of it :)
The Mallet is:

5" across the head (12.7cm)
The handle is 1 1/2" (3.8cm)...

This is my first bowl attempt. Its figured maple, finished with butcher block oil. Was bigger originally, but when I was hollowing out the inside I caught an edge and it went flying across my shop, oops ha.
another project I've already posted but did'nt do justice to it with one photo. I turned both front legs and mortise and tenoned the rest. Finished with polyurithane. I also burnt the ivy in the back of the chair which was fun
A few months ago I walked into a woodshop and kindled the flame of an old interest. Something new and exciting that stuck out to me was the wood lathe. The first time I saw the lathe I wanted to get someone to show me how to use it. After a month of catches and slips I bought my own and have...
This cherry stool was my first turning project. The legs have a bamboo look to them with a notch added at the widest points. The through tenons in the seat are wedged and it was finished with Deft Oil.
This is my first post, here is some of my amateur woodturning.

2nd pic - bowl made of gambel oak, very hard and dense, dang that torn end grain, gotta go much slower next time.
