    Red Gum, NIP, Honey Locust, Walnut, Magnolia

    Some pics of recent turnings... not much detail - I guess just proving that I do actually still have a lathe and it does actually still work.

    Not much detail!? Those are all really great. I especially like the Red Gum and Honey Locust pieces. But each are incredible. Nice work

    All great pieces, and I like the detail with the name of the wood etc in the bottom corner of some of the pics, looks really nice!

    Yep, I'd say that is proof positive that your lathe still works

    Looking good Mr. Cothren, looking good. Hard to pick a favorite but that red gum burl is mighty pretty, mighty pretty indeed!
    I may be getting a little older physically but mentally I'm still tarp as a shack.

    Really hard to pick a favorite here, but I think the Red Gum and pine are just outstanding.
