    New Turnings

    Here are a couple of turnings from a small cherry log I had and a small oak log. The cherry are calabash style and are 5 1/2" X 2 1/4" with 3/8" walls and the Oak NE is 6 1/2" X 4" with 3/8" walls. All three have one coat of Antique Oil on them. Didn't know what to do with the logs because they were small.

    Nice work, Bernie. The little oak bowl is my favorite, but they're all well done.

    Thanks for the comments. Vaughn the oak was a little contrary at times but finally made it work. Didn't turn out to bad as when I cut the blank it had lots of cracks on the ends but thankfully they didn't go to deep.

    Thanks Jim. I do really like turning oak. I have several pieces that were cut a year ago and even with two coats of anchorseal they still cracked on the ends. This piece would have been around 9 to 10 inches but turned away the cracks made it smaller.

    Way to go Bernie!!!
    First picture, I really like the looks of the first one, it just seems to flow. But for a using bowl, popcorn and chips, that second one in that picture is a winner in my book!
    For putting on a shelf, art type stuff, that NE bowl is great!
    Great job, I am envious of the skill it takes to do those.
