I just recently celebrated my 20th wedding anniversary, and as part of the celebration my wife and I took a private wood turning class together (neither of us having ever turned anything before).
I was able to set this up at McLaughlin Woods, where I had recently taken a joinery class. We had a load of fun and a lathe may well be in my shops future.
We ended up the day each making two turnings, one dry and other from a green cherry burl.
I decided in mid-turn that I wanted to try to do some hollow turning and didn’t make a bowl per se but more of a vase shaped thingy that we might put a t-light candle in or something like that.
All in all it was load of fun!
