Hey LJ just posting a recent video I did on making a tiny bud vase I make from Australian Red wood. The shape is not perfect but it looks nice because of its size. Enjoy!

Segmented Woodturning: "to boldly go...."

1122 days ago by poopiekat | 9 comments »

I have been studying segmented turning for a while. I have lots of small pieces of exotic lumber, a really good lathe, and seeking some out-of-the-ordinary projects less frequently seen. It was some You-Tube videos, a 90 yr old turner in North Carolina, who really made me conclude that this was something I could be doing! And so it began, two blocks of 10/4 maple, with a purpleheart filler. Next, some laminated beech, cherry and maple, and a pedestal made of salvaged yew from a neighbors t...

Lathe Projects #1: Woodturning - Slim Vase

1369 days ago by David Craig | 6 comments »

Been awhile since I had shop time. The last three weeks have been pretty much on call and vacation with the kids so it feels good to get back to work on some things. As I progress on the lathe, I have been wanting to experiment with more delicate turnings. Much of my work has been more heavy handed so far and I wanted to work with curves, thinner walls, and trickier hollowing. I had a small log I discovered that had been sitting in the basement since the beginning of time so I mounted it a...

MIL Vase #3: Done and done

1615 days ago by Zuki | 6 comments »

This morning DW told me that she was heading to her mother’s around noon. So I had a deadline for my most recent client. Two sides attached. View of the inside. When I got to this point I though . . . “I wonder if those arrows will show when I’m finished.” This it the top made from a piece of 1×4 D4S pine. It was ripped, a groove cut along the inside edge for it to fit over the top and a 45 on the outside edge to make it match the base(s). It was at this ...

MIL Vase #2: A frustrating moment . . . or two

1617 days ago by Zuki | 1 comment »

A beautiful day today. Sunny and 5 degrees. A great day for in the shop. I ripped the band sawn pine into 1 5/8 strips to use as the vase base. I wanted mitred corners so I broke out the mitre saw, set the angle to 45, set up a stop block and started cutting. When I had them cut I laid them together on the bench . . . the angle was not 45 . . . it was less and it left me with a fair gap in one corner. I was not impressed. At this point in time DW needed some crushed stone and topso...

A Good Vase Gone Bad

1680 days ago by Innovator | 8 comments »

I have been turning a lot of bowls lately and my wife is finding it hard to find places for all of them in the house. She has had to resort to putting them on a rotation so each one gets some time on a table or counter in the house. So I decided to change gears a little bit. I have been working on some hollow vessels lately. Notice I said working on! So I cut up a rock maple log that I had sitting on my wood pile and I went to it. I wasn’t sure what I wanted the vase to look like but I ...

turnings #11: first hollow-form failure update - major checking!

1686 days ago by Gary Fixler | 31 comments »

Just an update on this post. When I left off, it looked like this: I took a week’s hiatus – no motivation – and upon returning to the garage (last Sunday), I found this: Note it goes right to the pith, as every check I’ve seen in any log, branch, or twig in which I’ve noticed any checking does. This is why so many people remove the pith entirely from their blanks, and why pith-in end-grain turnings can be a bit of a craps shoot. Note that thi...

turnings #10: Newfound respect for hollow-form turners

1698 days ago by Gary Fixler | 10 comments »

Well, I tried out the tools I got from mom for my birthday recently. Of note: 1) My 1/2” Sorby Spindlemaster was not a good indicator of how the 3/4” and 1” behave. I’ve been using the 1/2” however I liked, never reading up on how to use it, nor watching any videos. I recently watched one and thought “Huh, I’ve been using it entirely wrong.” I’ve been holding it flat, and using a combination of things with both hands and the tool rest t...

Hollowing a Vase

1930 days ago by trifern | 17 comments »

I have had several people ask me how I turn a hollow form. I documented, the best I could, the process I go through when making a hollow form vase. I found it difficult stopping and photographing the process. Documenting the process became a process all in itself. The first step is selecting the wood and marking the centers. I then mount the blank on the lathe between the spur drive and the live center. The piece is then turned round. A tenon is then made for mounting into th...
