A Lathe is Added to the Shop

I ran into a deal I could not refuse for a mini lathe.  I picked it up at harbor freight (which I normally avoid) because it has great reviews and is essentially the same lathe as the rockler only much cheaper.  I am going to practice to be able to make any projects in the future that require wood turning and to have a better use for all the small pieces of scrap that I generate.  My first attempt was a bowl made from the left of Sapele from the last projects.  The second bowl is the first project from the red elm in the back yard.
