Two beauties. The fellow that had these as freebies in the front yard had both sides of the sidewalk lined with logs and log sections, with more in the back. These were the extent of what I could lift, each about 80-90 lbs. Looks to me to be rock maple. The tree he took down was three foot in diameter easily, not sure how tall it was. Thank you stranger, thank you majestic tree, sorry you had to come down. I will be reverent in handling your leavings. Where is the Cyber Bowl Blank Share condu...
The first in a, likely, long educational series, teaching by example. Poor example. Deliberately. If we don’t try (and fail quick) we may never learn how to proceed. Or reasons why the tried and true, really is. Several months back (or more) I saw some experimental turnings of Hilary Pfeifer's made from several layers of perforated hardboard, laminated into a block with woodglue. Inspired (and knowing that common wood glue would be brutal to keeping your chisels sharp) I took a bunch...
Hi Folks, Here’s the final in the bowl turning series. Finishing cuts, some sanding (ooo, that’s fun to watch) and applying a finish. I hope you’ve enjoyed this series. In upcoming videos, I’ll go through turning tools, sharpening, and chucking options. Cheers!
Hi Folks, Here’s Part II of my Turning a Bowl Series: Hollowing the Bowl. Thanks for watching and I hope everyone had a great weekend! Tom
This is my second attenpt at wet bowl turning after gathering valuable advice from a forum topic calling on bowl turners. Special thanks to Dorje, Mot (and his excellent CyberSkillShare series on bowl turning) and a very detailed and helpful tutorial by a fairly new member of LJs, SteveRussell (he isn’t new to bowl turning by any means, and I believe we haven’t heard the last from him in terms of sage advice). This is the second and largest log section from a sweet haul of b...
Hi Folks, Welcome to the first installment of the Lumberjocks.com Cyber Skill Share. Please read the Lumberjocks Forum for information on this concept, sit back, and turn the bottom of a bowl. This series will also include hollowing, sanding, finishing, turning tools, and some sharpening. Any feedback is greatly appreciated as we, the lumberjocks community, refine this concept! Thanks! Tom
Today I had the good fortune of cutting up a bunch of American Tulip Tree bowl blanks. Called various things around here, such as Tulip Poplar, Tulipwood, Tulip Maple, this is supposed to be some good bowl turning material. It’s really a Magnolia family tree – I think the biggest of the Magnolias, and it ‘s called Liriodendron tulipfera. I’ve really admired these trees when I’ve come across them around town for the past few years. I saw a craiglist post on the wood last week, didn’t get...
