I have a crappy very old small lathe, no chuck and a joke of a set of chisels, I don’t even own a bowl gauge. I’m making the best I can with my equipment, can’t afford to buy new ones at the moment, maybe one day then.
I have been turning for a month now, so I’m as green as they come. Have had now schooling for turning except Nick’s and R Humbrey’s channels on you tube, maybe couple of others as well.
I made a youtube video of my latest project and would like your comments on it. Comments on anything about it, I have no real experience with cameras and filming or lighting for instance.
I’m grateful of all feedback I can get, I want to keep going forward this excellent hobby.
P.S. I don’t know if it makes any difference, but just wanted send you all greetings from here in Finland 🙂
Thanks for sharing! Have watched and subscribed, looking forward to seeing your progress.Nice project and the filming and editing were good.??
Thank you Huey! More videos are coming soon, I have a lot of ideas for new projects.
Hello again everyone!
I have a new project ready, project leftovers.
I basically took some leftover strips of oak and birch, glued them together and made a platter. I had just enough for a 12″ plank.
I still have very little experience with the lathe, but I’m learning more with every project.
New project again, project Heart plate
This piece was made out of very old oak, I have a good supply of oak and I’m using it on many of my projects.
After trying my skill at turning a rough winged bowl out of square piece of wood, I had an idea of a heart shaped plate.
I made this as gift to my wife, a small project out of curiosity about turning this shape.
I haven’t seen anyone turn any other shape than square when making a winged platter or bowl so I decided to try it and it turned out to be fairly easy. Plank was very much out of balance, needed to turn it fairly slowly.
Brand new to forums.
Not even sure if I’m doing this right. I’m looking to get a lathe. Never done wood turning but I’ve been addicted to watching it for about 3 years. Should I buy small and work my way up? Or wait a while, save a few more quid and buy big. I’ve got a feeling my thing will be live edge stuff.
