Good work there Swirz
Looks more like a cup to me
Pine is a good wood to play with eh . We get to learn the ropes of softwood tearing , and keeping our tools sharp and our touch light eh mate
Get a firewood log , wet or dry , about a foot across , twice as long as it is round and split if in half with the axe . Trim it up till it is roughly circular , screw the faceplate onto it , chuck in on to the lathe , start at a slowish speed , grab your biggest roughing gouge and have at it .
Make lots of lomg shavings , find out whats under them .
I find that hand thrown pottery bowls are good shapes to think of when I'm turning .
Potters are woodturner's first cousins , we go way back , and they have kept a lot of the most basic as well as the classic forms alive .
