Wood Turning

First project

Received a lathe for my 42nd birthday (last year was a Laguna Saw). Made the first project on it for my Wife from a scrap of redwood. I still need to practice, as the side of the tenon portion are a bit thin, but for my very first time using a lathe, I am pleased. More importantly, the Wife is happy. It is finished with what I had, bees wax & mineral oil (from making cutting boards).

Big thanks to you, Eddie Castelin, Allan Straton, Bob( RJB Woodturning) and many others. Everything I learned on YouTube went into this, since there isn’t anyone local.
