Makin' shavings at the lathe

I use the lathe mostly for turned parts of furniture projects, so my experience is almost exclusively spindle turning with just some small facework for knobs, etc.

Having just been gifted a couple of slices of a modest yew butt, I decided to experiment with a bowl.

After half an hour roughing out a blank on my home made bandsaw, I was at the lathe. The shavings sure flew from the wet wood.
