    Default Work in progress - another vase

    Just waiting to be bored out as I want to do that in a chuck, but this would be my best bit of wood turning yet since I started learning a month or two ago. Unsure of what the wood is as it was given to me by my stepfather and he didn't know what it was either. I also used a friction polish that I found a recipe for online (1/3 shellac, 1/3 boiled linseed oil, 1/3 methylated spirits / denatured alcohol)

    Well you are certainly progressing, but I have to ask this question.

    Why did you photograph this on a wood burning instrument?

    I saw in another thread somewhere that you were having (or had) a session with an experienced turner; get as many of those as you can as it will certainly expedite your learning time.

    By the way, nice finish. Put this aside when finished and pull it out after a year of turning to enable you to note the difference that you should have made.

    Well it beats having it sitting on my lathe to take a photo and beats photographing it on a cluttered book case or cluttered computer desk and hey it scored me a response to my thread now that's a win - win situation

    I have only had one session so far with the guy who is teaching me and that was an introduction so I only stood and watched as he demonstrated and I was given some old apprentice diagrams to follow so I could practise cove, bead and vee cuts leading up to the next session.

    Here is some more stuff I have been doing the spindles were for practising my bead and cove cuts, they ended up becoming part of a stand for my wood turning chisels
