Goblets and bowls

The lathe is now set up on a bench, and I have had a chance to practice using my new tools.

My first thing...EVER!

An oak goblet.

Then I thought I'd have a go at a bowl using an offcut from a thick kitchen worktop.

These were sanded using a fine grit and natural oils used to finish.

A few days later I made and acorn in softwood, sanded on the lathe, polished with wax and buffed with soft safety cloth.

I enjoy this craft a lot and can't wait to learn how to do it better.
