Creation process

Here are some images of what it takes to create

Turning a rough cut bowl into something beautiful

A cup I was making with a lid. I have the lid crammed on using a paper towel to keep it tight while I cleaned it up and finished the lid.

The first day I got my new lathe. It was all I had hoped it would be.

It started out looking like this

And it ended up looking like this.

Behold the power of polyurethane.

This is part of the casket bookshelf I'm making for my daughter. It always amazes me how clear coat brings out the wood grain. And this is just the first coat.
