Default Here is a repeat of a turning project.

I'm relatively new to wood turning so please don't be too critical.

I've been turning for a couple years, but have not tackled a real bowl, like this yet. Great job, kid.

Oh, and the fruit you turned puts you at the front of the pack

The reason I have what you want is, I never lent it out before.

Harry,

I have a lathe but have only turned finials and other parts for my grandfather clock. I have made sconces that holds a candle and are on the wall by the mirror. I have purchased the chuck to make bowls. This is on my future to do list. First I am going to try making some pens. Inherited some pen parts, so I just ordered the pen turning mandrel. Will see how this works and will probably turn a small bowl first. As always, I enjoy following your projects.

In the next couple of days I'll post shots of my pen making, wood and Acrylic. It was a forum friend, now in a far better place, who persuaded me to buy a wood lathe to make pens.

Harry, I make my own polishes. They're easy to make. I use the wax from toilet rings bought at hardware stores. I just add thinner and diatomaceous earth for a great polish on the lathe. I find I can shoot lacquer over it just fine. Here is the web site (Instructables) where I posted making it:

https://www.instructables.com/id/Mak...pounds-for-Wo/

It works well. I even use it to polish these plastic-wood combo ornaments (instructables, again):

That's interesting Kelly but because over the years I've made so many projects out of our West Australian Jarrah that I found that several coats of Danish oil gave that wood a beautiful patina. I've used various finishes on pens but once my friend John taught me how to apply CA glue as a finish I was hooked.

Here is a link to the Youtube video of John in my shed showing me how he turns a pen and finishes it with CA glue.

Harry,

Thanks for the video. I just ordered the mandrel, but was not sure what to use in the tail stock to hold the mandrel. Will post pictures once project is done. Going to build a bedside shelf for wife first. Spent yesterday with AutoCad designing it and have made cutting list.

With the type of mandrel shown in the video, this shot will make it clear. The lathe shown is my current one.
