Nice find! I have several my uncle made for me.


It’s really nice.

I turn wood also and I find it to be a very enjoyable hobby or art.

How about some pictures?

Here’s a few.

A few more. I’ve been doing it less than a year. Great fun!

I was looking at your bio and saw your art pieces—very nice!

@WilliamFleming Walnut?

@twill It’s poplar, or what we call poplar, also known as tulip tree.

The larger bowl above is pecan. Small pieces are wild black cherry.

@WilliamFleming Yup, got me a big Tulip Tree in the back yard. i think it's Indiana State Tree.
Soft wood, it drops some big branches. I keep it trimmed away from house.

It all looks good. Both you guys have talent!

@WilliamFleming Nice work! You must have a big lathe?

@WilliamFleming :Have you tried any resin pours?

@PondartIncbendog My lathe is a Grizzly with 16” swing. No, I haven’t tried resin pours. I’m still learning the basics.

I really like that bowl of yours above. Very nice finish. Is that lacquer?

@WilliamFleming Yes. I left it somewhat rough. I was going to use ecks on it but its too holy. Holey.

@PondartIncbendog Holey smokes, what is ecks?

@WilliamFleming Its a sealer and finishing grit for wood. Its like Yorkshire Grit. There are two types for each, coarse finishing and final finishing. Its expensive, twenty bucks apiece, but you get alot.

You just named it for me.


A thing of beauty.

Thank you so much!


Now that's downright cool.

Thank you. I give these away to people who find me wood.


This is very nice. Is it for indoor decor?
