First off, gotta give a huge thanks to Bill, aka, Cajun Pen, for taking the time to answer my many questions and sharing his thoughts on the Ring Master. I finally broke down and got one, and have really enjoyed it, ALOT! The first bowl is curly maple with purple heart. 2nd bowl is curly maple, and 3rd bowl is cedar, and the last pair are oak that my daughter aka,The Boss Lady, made. I know these are not very good, but thought I would share the beginning of the journey with the Ring Master. Still have alot to learn with it, but am having a blast with it.

The problem is, that you’re going to force me to get one.

Great job.

At first I thought you got into turning. They look great and will only get better. Have fun with the Ring Master.

The bowls are fantastic! You and the Boss Lady did a great job on them. You got a great fit and finish on them. You are correct, the RingMaster is an amazing tool and a lot of fun to work with. My 5 year old Grandson likes to spend time in the shop with me (when I’m turning) and I’m thinking that in about 3-4 years I will get him started on the RingMaster. It is a safe tool for children and a great introduction into woodworking for kids. Happy for you Hoss, I look forward to seeing future bowls.

There are some useful videos on YouTube on using the RingMaster – by William Young .

You have added a whole new line to your woodworking. Those look nice. Never heard of the Ringmaster before. (but then I don’t get out much)

Great job and nice looking, you will get addicted.
I love my Ring Master and have made 70 or 80 bowls on it.

The one
If you start to play with wood stripe of a different colors at 90 degrees
you can get curved ribbons on the bowls, I have some pictures on my site.

Also for sanding I use a small grinder with a 2 or 3” sanding pad while the
bowl is going and can make it smooth really quick. HF has them and they
are around $ 20.
