Cherry Wood Bowl

This cherry wood bowl was my first turning project. I made it with a lot of help from the instructor in a "Bowl Turning With Carbide Tools" workshop at Rockler Woodworking and Hardware in Seattle on January 11, 2021.
That is the "official" date that I started to learn how to turn.

The mahogany table needs to be refinished. I built it in 1975 as a present for my mother-in-law. When she needed to downsize, she gifted it back to us.

Toddler/Baby Rattles

See how I make them here.

Shown below are toddler rattles (for ages 4 and up).
For baby rattles, both ends have a cavity-bulb with a minimum diameter.
