A few of my favourites!

Hello everyone, my name is Nathan Bos, I just joined. I am 15 live in cambridge on a farm and I love turning. I have been turning for about a year and these are a few of my favourite turnings.

Sorry the pics are so big, i'll fix it next time!

Nicely done, Nate.
You're learning this at a very young age and you've obviously got a real talent for design.

Share some more pics of your work.
....and please take some shots of your lathe setup for the rest of us .
Thanks for posting.

Nice job Nate. Not bad for only doing it for a year.
Pics are fine.

Welcome -- thanks for sharing some of your work.

Don't shrink the pix, if they are any smaller I'd be asking you to make them larger so I can see more of the details

I really like the tall finials on the lidded boxes -- and nice touch arranging the grain to line up when you took the photos.

Very nice. Making us old farts look bad with those boxes. Keep up the great work.

That bowl was perfect right up until that last cut...

Nice job! I find every turning is unique.

But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8

That's some really nice work. It sounds like since your doing this at a young age you will be teaching others before your 20. It's fun and VERY addictive. Thanks for sharing and I look foward to seeing more of your work.
