    Thucktheth! Of thortth! As Sylvester would say...

    Here is my first bowl-type turning that didn't fall apart before I finished it. It is a goblet, suitable for a very small person or a very small celebration. It is made in spalted maple about 8cm (2") high. The inside is a little rough, so I'll have to go over those instructions again.

    Good first run!

    I think the instructions at this point are practice practice practice cause it looks like you certainly have the basics down! The insides of steep sided stuff like this are always a pain for me as well, takes a certain touch I guess..

    That's a fine first bowl-type project, Roger. I suspect it was done unknowingly, but you picked a difficult shape to try to cut out of spalted maple, especially for a first attempt. The smoothness of the surfaces will improve as you get more experience in sharpening and handling the tools.
