Wood Turning

Laburnum Log bowl/candle holder

Laburnum natural edge log bowl/tea light holder. 8.5 inches long x 2 inches deep and 3.5 inches wide finished in microcrystalline waxes.
I used 3/8 gouge and a round nosed scraper to make it and it took about 20 minutes from start to finish. sanded to 600 grit.
It was surprisingly well balanced on the lathe and I could run it at 2000 rpm straight away without any chatter or vibration…..obviously making it easier to get a clean cut and nice tool finish.

I look forward to hearing any feedback from other wood turners!
