10 inch Sycamore Bowl

Hi Carl,

A little while back I asked for advice about a Lathe. With your advice I got a larger capacity lathe and actually went with a Jet 16-40 lathe. Here is my first finished project. It is a 10 inch bowl, 5 inches deep finished with walnut oil and bees wax. Just in time to hand out candy… Thank you for your help. As promised I’d like to drop off a piece of Maple Burl or a Walnut blank I have been seasoning. Let me know if you want me to drop it off or send it to you. I’m in Newberg. Thanks again.

Royal Poinciana Lidded Box with Walnut Finial

Turned this on my Harbor Freight 8×12 – 1/3 HP Lathe. It was turned from what was left of a nice Royal Poinciana Log and the walnut finial was a last minute addition. I made sure I could pull off turning the finial before I drilled the hole in the lid.
