Eagle America Holiday Bowl

01-21-2011 07:38 PM by Wilton | 1 comment »

This project was a gift. The woods chosen were 2 pieces of maple with a piece of cherry laminated in between. The project was created using a template from Eagle America. After the glue up, the template was set on top of the wood blank and the pattern traced onto the wood. I then used a forstner bit to clear out the majority of the wood inside the pattern and getting as close to the line as possible. I elected to use the depth stop set at 5/8 of an inch to leave a strong bottom. Afte...

From board to bowl #1: 12" Scroll Saw Bowl Blank

01-21-2011 03:21 AM by SASmith | 19 comments »

This blog will show how I make a 12” bowl blank from 1 BF of lumber. Cut a 12”x12”x3/4” square and draw an X from corner to corner to find the middle. Using a compass draw a circle in the middle of the board the size you want the bottom of the bowl to be. In this case around 4”. Draw concentric circles spaced the thickness of the board (in this case 3/4”) Drill 1/8” holes at 45 degrees on the 4 inner circles to insert a scroll saw blad...

techniques #7: George Lailey commemorative bowls

10-11-2010 09:51 AM by Gary Fixler | 14 comments »

You guys really liked my last blog post about the Jarvi Bench, which made me happy as it was my 200th. I thought I’d follow up with a simpler process video I recently found that also makes me quite happy. In this one, a man named Robin Wood recreates the techniques used by one George Lailey, who died in 1958 at 89 years old. Robin spent 5 years researching Lailey’s techniques, recreating the very simple, entirely foot-powered lathe (a “pole lathe”), hand-forging all...

A day spent with Mike (again)

09-17-2010 04:36 AM by Rustic | 8 comments »

Hey guys and gals, Well today was a day to remember. First, off to the Dr. for yearly physical, (fun fun). Everything checked out ok. Then off to JockMike2’s shop,where I have a bowl in process on his lathe. I was there last week to start the bowl. Went today to work on it some more. Had a few checks that needed some serious filling. Then on to turning the inside of the bowl. When I left there today I walked out with my bowl in tow. It is a beautiful piece of maple with some spalting...

30 projects in 30 days #17: Make art everyday

07-06-2010 01:52 AM by scottb | 4 comments »

or at least try to. In the past I’ve taken a couple of stabs at turning out 30 projects in 30 days. My first attempt was the most ambitious, trying to churn out, not only a project a day for 30 days, but to make them also be a sellable one every day. In the end I created more than 30, and spent about as much time on the photographing and blogging as I did the actual work. Quite the busy month – perfect cover for my wife to catch me off guard with a surprise birthday party ̵...

Prototypes #8: Segmented bowl with floating bottom

05-07-2010 02:30 AM by darryl | 7 comments »

Being a fan of segmented turning I joined the group Segmented Woodturners, a chapter of the AAW, earlier this year. While I’ve made quite a few segmented turnings, I have not yet made a segmented bowl… well until now! The current preseident of the Segmented Woodturners group is Malcolm Tibbets, an astonishly talented turner. Malcolm has written a book on segmented turning and has also produced four dvd’s on the subject. With Malcolm’s advice and encouragement, I inc...

Just finishing up my latest projects

04-21-2010 02:39 AM by 76winger | 0 comments »

Since the first of the year I’ve turned my first two bowls from curly maple and made a custom pen & pencil set with case out of Mahogany. I’ll be posting pics soon! I’ve also received a donation of several Walnut logs (saved from a friends firewood pile!), that I believe are going to make some excellent bowl, platter and vessel blanks. The price was right (free!) so they’ll certainly make for good turning practice as well as nice final products (at least I hope!).
