A very good video, Harry. That guy sure could handle a skew, no catches with him doing the turning. With the background noise, I couldn't understand what he was saying. Could you please tell me what I need to know to make some of these flowers?

Thanks Don

Measure once cut twice and it's still to short.

Hi Harry,he sure knows his way around the lathe & one of the best turning videos I've seen. I gave my chisels to the guy who bought my lathe so no chance of getting another one,maybe??? James.

James, I am taking your place. You sold your lathe and I just bought one and I am trying to learn to turn by looking at YouTube. I try and learn all types of woodworking but I am not good at any of it. I bought a set of Easy Wood Tools and they are great. They are very pricey but well worth it.

I'm not sure which tool you mean John, if it's the large drill, I no longer use that, I have ground a 1" spade bit which only needs a small starter hole. I use rattle can gloss lacquer for the finish.

Don, one of my first bowls started out as an 8" one but after sanding out all the dig-ins using countless sheets of Silicon Carbide paper and burning my fingers in the process, it ended up as a very nice 6" bowl! The video doesn't really need the sound track, just study the video like I did, several, times to make sure that I knew enough to start making my own Tulips.

- Harry, I didn't catch the name of the sander he was using as the lathe was getting up to speed and he then quickly started sanding. Any chance you recall ?

That looks very similar to this one. By the way Harry thanks for showing me the Banggood site. https://www.banggood.com/Wood-Bowl-S...r_warehouse=CN

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
