Woodturning project #3 – A wooden bowl

This weekend I have had the pleasure of being taught how to turn some wood.

I spent two days with Tom Pockley and have learned so very much that I hope I don’t forget. I guess the best way is to get some more practice in during the week all I need to do is finish work on time so I can play in the garage / wood shop.

This is item project 3 for me and I am quite happy with it, I also turned a box but that will be in the next post.

Woodturning project #1 – 8 inch sycamore bowl

So I have taken up a new hobby to go with all of the others, and this is my first attempt to make something.

This in an 8 inch sycamore bowl.

I am in preparation of a turning course in two weekends time and thought I should give things a go before I went, this is the first thing I have put on a lathe and the first bit of woodwork in over 25 years.

This is my attempt, sorry about the quality of the photos I was using the camera on the back of a tablet.

I followed this tutorial from Keith Barrow on YouTube:
