Handcrafted wooden bowls are one of the classic items to make on a lathe. Here are a few that I have made. I mostly use locally sourced wood salvaged from trees that were cut down for reasons other than harvesting the wood.


Wooden pens are a fun and somewhat addictive item to craft on the lathe. There are wide variety of styles available and because they only need a small piece of wood it economical to use some of the more exotic wood available. With that being said though there are some local woods that make very nice looking pens as well.

    Hi Andrew, I used WordPress to build the site. It is free so the only cost is for the web hosting.
