  • Segmented Bowl From Lathe

    I did this 6" dia bowl from Walnut & Spaulted Sycamore for my lady to put her M&M's in.
    First time doing a segmented bowl on a lathe.

    Nice bowl! I like the wood combination, shape and size. Is that your own design?

          Very nice. I am seriously thinking of getting a lathe. Harbor Freight has one for sale for $119 Benchtop Wood Lathe - 8" x 12". Would I be able to turn small bowls on that? How much would the other accessories I would need cost?

            B. Look around some. I paid about that for my 48"x14".
            if you find you really like turning you'll be all set. Bigger can go smaller but smaller can't go bigger

              This is the same lathe I have just a little smaller. With little to no dollars and a little angle iron and it can be any size you like. I've even thought to make the power head removable so it can be mounted on the edge of a bench so large pieces can be spun. Look around theres tons of stuff out there

                  That is a nice design the wood choice looks great. What wood did you use? and the finish looks very nice, what did you use?
                  Did you sign and date it?
                  Turning is a nice break from scrolling.

                  Bstark I agree with Oily, I would look around for a good used lathe. For tools like that I don't think HF is a good choice. Regarding cost, unlike scrolling you can sink a lot of money into tools, chucks and gadgets for turning.

                      Can't get mine yet in Arizona, although I'd love to. Don't have enough vaccines here, so we are still focused on high exposure 'essential workers' and people over 75.

                      My wife and I got vaccinated this morning. I had worried that there would be long lines. But, the state of Indiana seems to have gotten it right. We went online 10 days ago and scheduled an bbc.co appointment. We got there as nd no line and went thru the check in, got our shots, waited 15 minutes...
