I had a day yesterday being taught the basics of woodturning by a very talented chappie. It was a really fun day
Here's the results of my day.
First up, a couple of practice pieces using 5cmx5cm soft wood
Then we progressed on to making this little 7cm lightpull toggle from yew
Then something more challenging - a 14cm tall vase - again from yew. I love the difference in colour between sapwood and heartwood.
And finally I had a go at making a 19cm bowl from Ash
I loved woodturning. Definitely need to find time to practice and make some more bits. The kit is not cheap though. My dad has a small lathe in his shed. But a decent lathe and tools is gonna set me back 1500 quid
and I'd need a bigger shed!
So I'll borrow dad's small lathe for now to practice.
