live edge bowl and turned box

just finished a live edge bowl and turned box today. the live edge is from the firewood pile :) this was my first "green" turning as well as first live edge turning. it was pretty successful, there are some minor checks due to sanding a little to much (learned my lesson) but overall it turned out pretty good. i finished it with semi gloss poly. I also turned an end grain box which was pretty neat, this was kind of experimental. this is also finished with semi gloss poly.

Great job on both pieces.

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

wow. All of those turning look beautiful. I love them all. Fantastic work.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"

both are very nice -- I particularly like the natural edged bowl, that's something I haven't tried yet
