Skyj son newbie turner

hey all, i just made my first piece and i think it is very good. I did do most of it but my dad showed me how the tools are used and how to use them. i hollowed out the inside but dad touched it up. but for my first i think it looks very nice. i would very like to continue on wood turning, it is very fun and i enjoy working with wood and with my dad. i will post pics of new ones i make. my pictures are posted in the gallery under my name skyjr. it was made out of  spalted pecan. this is my first of many, enjoy. by the way, im 14.

Junior, I agree with you. You have, in fact, turned a very nice, little, box. It seems both you and Senior have the gift. As I told your dad, use you gift well. it will be of benefit for a lifetime. Besides, turning is fun! Grin

Hey Jr, nice job on your first box...now go find a cute girl to give it to... Wink  That will give your dad gray hairs faster than you standing at the lathe will...

Keep it up, you're doing well so far.  Not to mention, you'll save a bundle on Christmas presents this year!

By the way, I'm 32.   Tongue

Have fun!

Congrats, Dad and Son. There's probably more than a few dads out there right now saying something like "I wish MY kid would join me out here". And maybe a few kids wishing they could?
My only advice is: don't try to do too much, too fast. Make sure you take care of the basics as you progress, OK?
I'll shuddup now.
Again, well done.
