Finally turned one that i think turned out awesome....i.wanted to see how thin i could go on it..how good my control was....too bad its green and more than likely going to crack in half....we will see what happens...but for now....im proud of this one.. :)

Any tips on how i can prevent it from being scrap would be great..i have it sitting in a bag of shavings right now...going to oil it up every day or so...
others may have better ideas but I have used Danish oil on mine at this stage. is seems to slow down the drying and reduce cracking. it will warp, but after it has warped I dress the bottom at a disc sander so it sits flat.
