Hi Jocks! I had been wanting to make another quick project so out to the shop I went and made another cupcake stand. This one is for my oldest daughter who just completed a cake decorating class. Hopefully this will be a good motivator for her to make some nicely decorated cupcakes to see and display, if only temporarily! ha. Thanks for checking out this video. It was spur of the moment but still fun and satisfying. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oUd4nIzSq7M&list=UUU_N6BtSIC...
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...
“Any suggestions how to price or split the price of a turning?” Sure. I started woodworking (including woodturning) in 1971 and since 1987 my sole source of income has been woodturning. I’ve not had such a hard time determining prices, partly because, in the marketplace of simple woodturning, most ‘professional’ wood turning businesses are masters of fixing the prices: high, higher and outrageous I routinely charge 15 to 25 percent less than established compani...
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.

I thought it was sad if the plate wasent finished, so i started thinking of a pat...

Build part 1 of the lathe duplicator series.
Just a short introduction to version 2 of my router powered lathe duplicator/ copier attachment. This router attachment enables the duplication of existing wood turnings or the creation new woodturnings through the use of a template.
I somehow stumbled across this interesting article.Woodturnings By The Masters For Sake Of ComparisonIt certainly made me feel better as I’m always my own worst critic.I hope you enjoy this perspective as well. Which reminds me of the first coin holder I ever sold.I considered it my worst piece, it was some junky dunnage I’d thrown together on an experimental whim.There was even obvious glue smear available.It sold within a couple of hours.Go figure.
