Success! I completed the bowl for my friends bonsai and I still have all my fingers and there are no new holes in the shop walls. I still have to apply a few coats of sealer, but the turning is complete. I'll get some good photos and upload them tomorrow, but for now I'm just happy that there was no visit to the ER today!
I also made a ring out of some pear wood today. It turned out well, so I'll be making more of those. I'm going to try making some ear rings out of the pear wood, should be interesting.
Anyway, that's it for now.
Have a great day and remember wood is good.
