And I have trouble turning a pen. I do not know how long it took you to do that. But, I would have stood by and watched the whole time just for the joy of the beauty of the outcome.

Very sweet Earl!
Jack did a three sided turning demonstration at their turning club a while back.
I can't grasp the geometry.
Great job on a knuckle buster!

Beautiful work, Fred! Being your first attempt makes me realize that mastering the early skills truly IS the key to opening a lot of turning doors. The fit of the lid is a great example of not only thinking, but turning outside the box!

Fred,

That looks really good~! And the finish looks great. I love how well cedar sands, very very smooth surface.

So did you have any problems with it cracking?

oddly enough no cracking issues. I was expecting some but it didn't happen. I made very light cuts and stopped to look often.:gar-Bi

Maybe I was just cutting to much, as I noticed the cutting tool getting pretty hot and didn't stop to let it cool down. I think that's what made the bowl start cracking, or maybe it's the fact that it took me 3 days to turn the bowl (I'm in school and working and have very little time) and I left it out in the hot garage? :eusa_doh:

Any thoughts Fred would be greatly appreciated. :icon_thum
