First Olive wood bowl

Hi Carl,
I know it isn’t much in comparison to other people’s projects but I really wanted to share this with you as it is my first (proper) bowl. This was after a few practice runs on scrap wood.

Spiral tea light holder

Hi, firstly thank you for your youtube vids. Based on the barley twist you did, after just 8 weeks of playing haphazardly with a lathe, i went totally out of my comfort zone and did this. Not perfect, though pretty darn close.

Thanks for all your hard work, and the inspiration you give.

Miniature Segmented Vase

Dear Carl

This video shows me making my first segmented project on the lathe. After watching you and Kyle Toth I was inspired to do it.

I hope you like the video

Split Live Edge Bowl

This project was inspired by Carl Jacobson, I wanted to make a live edge bowl for a long time. But half way though to turning process I noticed a split… then the bowl snapped on the lathe! I wanted to rescue the bowl and after alot of thinking I decided to do something different. I turned the bowl into a contemorary art piece by adding bowties to fix the bowl. It is now a sweet/ fruit bowl.
Thanks for reading/watching

Toothbrush holder

Many toothbrush cups get gooey on the bottom, having the brushes in a ring on the outside keeps liquids from building up in it. The ratios could have been better in the shape, but I just made it up as I went along. The next one will have a wider base.
