Thanks for sorting picture for me.  I am looking forward to playing more as well with the off centre turning.  The chuck came with an idea for turning a spoon!!! maybe try that at some point

Thank you.  I did enjoy using the chuck, it was a wee present for stopping smoking 6 weeks ago.

Thank you
 
It was air dried, it looked awful to be honest, stained, bit wobbly when put on the lathe, cost about £6 if i remember right, i never thought it would come out the way it did.  I found another piece just recently, hopefully it will turn out the same, you just never know do you!!!

Answer is as George has said.

There is no finish on this item, it is straight off the lathe with very little sanding, was just trying different shapes, next one will be a little bit better.

Thank you

Hi

I have tried and failed at the twists a few times, but seeing your work has given me inspiration to try again.

Well done

Then the Diamond bowl, this one was turned from Elm, bit more difficult to turn the diamond bowl, this was first attempt!!.

 I enjoy turning pieces like these, you tend to think how you are going to do these pieces and be careful!!!

Hi Ralph

I cut a rectangular piece from the strair tread, then sanded the sides and ends then turned the bowl. Handsanded the wings.  Have also done diamond bowls, which are even sharper when running at 3000rpm!!

Thank you

American oak, started life as stair tread!!, was given the wood from work!!

 Shed time this weekend, projects to plan
