I put to use the newly sharpened tools
and had to find my touch again to shape the little bowl-
and to hollow out that center!
That is the hardest part to me!
It's all technique plus experience!
Since I struggle with depth perception anyway,
I have a hard time approaching the bowl at the proper angle and touch! It is fun to see my pile of wood and know that I can practice to my heart's content!
I will be applying the finishes to the bowl
today and will begin a new one!
Here are my favorite tools
(I have several old sets we've purchased through the years!)
because they are just the right length and weight for me!
These are all sharpened now--
I practiced with the old tools first-
but they one and all work like new, of course!
Wonderful to put them to use and to be able to sharpen them to perfection so many times in each project!
Here is the grinder all mounted and with its accessories for sharpening the different types of lathe tools.And I leave you with this beautiful but non-aromatic Confederate Rose!
