Next Up – Some Bowls!

As mentioned in New Shop Addition, I have started learning how to use a lathe. In the past couple weeks I have started learning how to do faceplate turning, as opposed to spindle turning used in making pens.

For now I’ve concentrated on bowls and small dishes. We’ll see where it progresses, but right now I’m happy with what I’ve been able to do thus far and I’m learning something new each and every time.

Here are a few of my latest.

I don’t know what I’m going to do with all of these!
Starting at the top and going clockwise: ash, cherry, and elm.

I tried my hand at a thin platter/tray, made out of maple.
