Spalted maple bowl. This was my first bowl finished with the new Glenn Lucas woodturning tools. They worked very well. Cleaning the bottom with the negative rake scraper worked really well.
Small walnut bowl today. I am happy with the results. My biggest problem is getting a perfect surface on the inside of the bowl.
My first attempt at a natural edge, end grain bowl/plate. It was quite a challenge because when turning the outer edge you are consulate changing between cutting air and wood. I need more practice to get good at that. I am, however, quite happy with the results for now. It is 35cm wide.
This is the first object from an oak beam I got from Paul Palinek at Baum Satori....Thanks!
The tree from which I turned this bowl is from just down the street from where we live. It had to be cut down to make space for new houses.
