It’s been at least 2 weeks since I worked on this project. These are the rings that will make up the lid.
Working further on the bowl gouge I turn a handle in this video and give it a testing. I still need to make a good sharpening jig for it, but I hand sharpen it this time. Check out the video and subscribe for more woodworking videos.
After sanding to 220 grit I applied a coat of clear shellac as a sealer.I’m hoping the cherry will darken more to give the piece better contrast.
This will be a covered bowl. I first made the bowl and then will make the cover to ensure it fits.This bowl has two different types of rings; one type of ring is from alder and walnut & the second type of ring is from cherry and maple. The smaller pieces from maple and walnut are wider in the rings as they approach the center but the effect did not turn out that obvious. There is a layer of black veneer between each ring.Here are some photos from glued rings to finished turning (before...
In this video I turn a bowl using scrap wood which was beginning to become a trip hazard in my shop. View on YouTube
I have decided to see if I could make a bowl gouge for a very cheap price instead of buying one. So far it is going well with forming the main portion and then heat treating the metal. Subscribe for more woodworking videos.
Instead of leaving my lathe tools laying around and always getting in the way, I created a rack to hold them with a few additional spaces for future expansion. I was able to use scrap lumber and fill in a void area in my shop. Take a look at the project, leave comments, and subscribe.

The outside has been turned to shape and sanded. Now it is time to drill out the center and start the hollowing process. My homemade articulated hollowing arm works great. The one problem is the opening; it is less than 1 1/2” in diameter which makes hollowing out the center more challenging that I anticipated. I will leave the walls relatively thick on this vessel.
I turned another lidded box today. It was from a large block of soft maple. I have some more sanding to do on its very top; the box’s lid. This spot is where I turned the top to a small nub. I chose to remove the nub with a hand saw. I then cleaned up the remaining wood with a sharp hand chisel. Tomorrow I will sand it more through several grades of grit. The last lidded box that I hope to work on tomorrow is African mahogany. I did work on it some today. I bored through ...
