Yesterday I cut a lot of blanks for training from some 2x6 and 2x8. Also laid my hands om some off cuts of 4x4, and turned one of those into a small candle holder this morning - hollowed out the inside both to reduce the weight and get some experience doing end-grain hollowing.

Another decent result Im satisfied with. Made from a piece of spruce construction lumber, 2x6,  coloured with a permanent marker and finished with mineral oil.

Brush handles will be attempted when I get my hands on proper stock to make them from... the construction lumber spruce in 2x2 I had was simply to cracked and too soft to do much with.

In the mean time, my latest successful project is a lidded box made from a piece of 4x4 spruce, unfinished. Quite happy with the lid; if fits securely and comes off with a satisfying pop. A shorter version could work well for keeping shaving soaps in, if I can find a waterproof surface treatment that is food safe - I don't want to put solvents and other "fun" things near my soaps.

Hans, your skills are developing rapidly. It seems you’ve really taken to your new passion. I will continue to follow this thread as you delve deeper into turning. Have fun!

Remember Charlie, these are the successful projects.. the less successful ones I keep hidden Tongue

I find that turning is great fun, and I can turn a small box or a bowl in an hour or so.. a great way to relax that don't take a lot of time or too much space.
