I'm relatively new to this strange practice of spinning a piece of wood and stabbing at it with knives.

Last fall the wife and I agreed to spend a few hundred bucks on a Jet midi lathe. A few thousand bucks later, I have a fairly functional wood shop, although my wish/shopping list seems to be longer than when I started.

Let's see if I can post a pic just for fun...

Welcome to the Vortex! But, boy isn't it fun.

Nice job on the bowl; I really like the shape.
