So it seems we have two talented wood carvers on staff.

Really nice work, both of you.

You can say that again, that takes a lot of skill to make your hands do what you see in your mind.

Here's a hard maple bowl I spun onna lathe. It's about 5 1/2" wide and 3" tall. Hollowed out. Pretty lightweight. One thing I like about lathework is the instant gratification on most projects.

Does anybody make pens on a lathe? They're fun and make nice personal gifts.

I've had a lathe for years, but I don't think I've ever attained as high a quality of work, Bubba. I know DaveM has done some pretty tricky things, too.

I haven't used a lathe since Jr high days but it's something I'd like to try again. I would also like to try carving a bear with a chain saw but my job keeps getting in my way.

I've never done a hollow form, but I do like making simple bowls and they are always well received as gifts. Here are a couple in progress for Christmas gifts this year.

Cool bowls, Dave. What kind of wood are those made from?

Good video. I think I'd really enjoy chainsaw carving.

That's cool. Lots of good ideas on Etsy and Pintrest. After looking there makes me want to get my knife out and whittle on something.
