Hi all now as a spend more time on the lathe
I see why you enjoy it

I will never stop carving but its nice to try your hand at somethink new
and hey if I can carve it well thats good to:2tsup:

now I know I still have a lot to work on with my turning
but was thinking I will list off the good and bad in turning

you ge tsomethink finished in a short time:D

you soon start looking at wood as how can I turn this
not how can I carve this:B

all the bits of wood that are to little to carve I can turn:roll:

getting that 1st face full off chips:D

the turners I have talked to are all nice people:2tsup:

working on the lathe to hear that bang crash as your work flys off the lath
and you jump 10 ft in the air:C

so heres two from today

the bolw is going to have the outside carved

ps pics not that good had to use the web cam

You all carver turners have an unfair advantage over us plain ole turners. While we can only make it round, you can do that and then create all sorts of interesting embellishments. Some really great Aussie and Kiwi carvers out there.
