Quick backstory.

Old guy in the neighborhood sees my truck, needs help with roof repair and drain clog and...etc. Feels terrible (tears) he can't pay even after I tell him to not sweat it. I ask if he has something to barter.....hoping for a vase or something.

He drags me out to the garage and insists I take his lathe. He no longer uses it, and I've always wanted to play around with turning bowls...so I accept.

Will this thing turn a bowl? What chuck do I need? Is this a total waste of time?

I grabbed this piece of cherry and played for a couple seconds.

I think it is clear that I am well on my way.:laughing:
