Ready to Learn More

Now that I have my second bowl under my belt (and I'm still very excited that I didn't need to glue the bottom back onto this one), I'm really looking forward to the bowl turning group meeting that I'm going to on Tuesday.

My father put me in touch with someone he knows that's in this group a couple weeks ago. I'm also going to meet this fellow turner on Saturday after I finish my morning chores (bringing the trash and recycling to the dump) so I can check out his shop and see what pointers he might be able to share.

Bowl # 2

it might be considered a little on the thick side... but at least it's in one piece!

here's a bowl I made tonight out of a piece of purpleheart. I gave this one a quick coat of mineral oil after sanding it down to a 220 grit.

and another shot.
