Just to prove that I do work wood...

I've been a member here for some time, and I just realized, I've never posted a project. Just asked questions, and gave tool advice. So, without further ado, here are a few things I've turned.Just to prove that I do work wood...-experiment.jpg

The bottom one is a mallet, right? Great bowls!

Harrison, at your service!

Nice bowls Mick, and that mallet looks like it good cause a few lumps if somebody gets mad. What kind of wood is the first bowl made from?

Both bowls are Texas ebony, and the last is indeed a mallet, I use it to 'fine tune' my projects

Very nice. Now that wasn't that hard, was it? ;-)

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

You did some nice work there, Mickey.

Hope there's more projects on the way.

Nice stuff, Mickey!

Thanks for sharing!

Looks great Mickey! Now you need to change your signature to "Dances with Lathe Tools".
