Segmented bowl base ring cracks??

03-10-2014 01:46 PM by poospleasures | 7 comments »

I ask for your comments and suggestions about a opportunity (problem) with a couple similar bowls. Both made from walnut and maple. One about 11 1/2” other 13”. History—have been doing segmented bowls for just over a year with this cracking only on these two. I hope you can see the two joints with the yellow circles. Those joints separated by appx. .0003th of an inch. If held up to a light you could see through. These were made the same way as almost all the bowls I’ve...

A bit of a wood gloat

04-13-2011 02:05 AM by David Craig | 7 comments »

I haven’t had much time to devote to shop projects for a couple weeks. Work and life still a little too chaotic for the moment. I did, however, have a bit of good fortune with an unexpected gift of wood. I had a childhood friend contact me on facebook and let me know that he had some “branches” he had pruned off of his Black Walnut tree and I could have what I wanted. Not one to turn down free wood, I investigated and found the branches were 3 12-15 foot sections that were a...

Lathe Projects #1: Woodturning - Slim Vase

07-20-2010 02:33 PM 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...

This is simply a test and a introduction. The plate im working on at the moment is a thing With history, it is a thing i have poured a lot of myself into. Its like a inner prosses, both of sorrow,joy and creating. My grandfather turned this plate maybe 15-20 years ago from one piece of silver birch and forgott it in a corner in the workshop where i found it afther his passing away many years later. I thought it was sad if the plate wasent finished, so i started thinking of a pat...

Drawer Pull

03-13-2012 01:13 AM by Brett | 5 comments »

Hi Jocks! This is a video of making a drawer pull for a project I am working on. I turned the pull from some beech and ebony. This is the kind of project that I thought that I needed a lathe for. I have been bitten by the turning bug and that is all that I seem to want to do lately… turn! This is such a small part of the overall project but it sure was a fun highlight in making it. I hope that you enjoy watching!
