Default Bowl Turning Class

The spouse and I tool a bowl turning class at Lee Valley today. We haven't done much with our Delta lathe other than turning a few pens so it's time to step it up. I think we did ok for beginners. The wood is soft maple, mineral oil and bees wax finish, mine is on the right.

Those look nice Deb.

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.

As far as the workmanship is concerned, I can't tell them apart, Deb.

Very nice...

Nice Job Deb:

One of these days I got to get out in the shop and start doing some more turning.

Just haven't felt the desire to make anything lately.

Those are really nicely done Deb. For your firsts I would date and sign them. Keep them so 2 or 3 yrs down the road you can compare.

Very well done! Just be warned, you have gone down a very slippery slope that has no return! Have fun with it!

As the others have said Deb for your first bowls they are very very good and as Bernie has said sign and date them, myself if I know the woods origin esp if I have cut it from the tree I add this info also using a Dremel fitted with a small diamond ball end for this purpose.

Thanks! I like the idea of using the Dremel to sign them.
