Got a bit windy out and an oak tree fell in my woods. I managed to save a burl which i cut with a hand saw and it took forever to get off. This will be my first attempt at a bowl.cup ( depending on size it finishes to be ) and once again i will use only hand tools. I’ll update it as i go. ENJOY !

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!).

Shop time with jockmike2

03-31-2010 06:31 PM by David Craig | 11 comments »

I had a chance, yesterday, to spend another delightful afternoon/evening with Mike (aka jockmike2). Each time I visit, it seems my confidence level goes up a notch and I spend more time doing some actual turning. So there was much progress with the bowl I was working on and it would seem that it is not destined to spend the rest of its days as a permanent addition to Mike’s chuck. The piece we worked on is a chunk of maple that Mike was kind enough to donate to the teaching process. ...

Rottenstone Problems

01-18-2010 06:07 PM by GoGoZRX | 0 comments » I picked up some 4F pumice and some rottenstone… I sanded to 400, then used the pumice. I put some of the paraffin oil on a rag, and sprinkled on the pumice. Needless to say, I was quite surprised when the white powder turned ashy, but I cranked up the speed on the lathe and went at it. In short order, the surface was gleaming!“I can’t wait to try out the rottenstone!” Or so I thought… it seems to have gotten into the ?pores? of the ...

Further down the bowl turning rabbit hole...

12-06-2009 09:24 AM by Llarian | 8 comments »

Yesterday marked the start of finally getting into bowl turning, something I’d been meaning to do for a while really. The whole pen making thing was as much accidental as anything else, since I got a bunch of pen kits with my cheap lathe, and it seemed a good way to pass the time and churn out some holiday gifts in the process. (I’ve actually sold a couple, amusingly, so I guess its a good time filler afterall) However, I’d really bought the lathe to learn to turn bowls...
