Jewelry Catch-All in Claro Walnut

My grandfather stood me up to a turning lathe when I was a very young boy. He ignited a lifelong passion for woodworking. This is a Memorial Day tribute to Clyde E. Bull and a gift for my wife, Joyce.

Actually, this is my first bowl, the product of experimentation with a new Barracuda scroll chuck on my trusty old ShopSmith. Made from a rough, 5/4, Claro Walnut cut off . Five inches in diameter, 3 1/2 high. Danish Oil finish.

I like it. It has a very pleasing shape. I don’t know anything about turning, but it looks great to me!

I like it a lot. Could be used for anything. It would look good on any table top.

Thank you, Lumber Brethren for the very kind words. Every time I return to some lathe work it’s a sentimental journey. I remember the big hands that used to come over my shoulders. They taught and rescued me. Apprentice a child every opportunity you have.

Nice project but even nicer story about your Grandpa. And you are right we should never be too busy to invest some time into sharing our skills with the next generation of potential artists or craftsmen. ‘nuff said, Thanks for sharing.

Beautiful bowl! Where did you happen to get your scroll chuck from and are you happy with it? I have been looking for one myself and was looking for some insight!

bheckson,
Barracuda scroll chucks are widely available. My CSC2000C came from Penn State Industries. At around $129-$139, mine is regarded as an entry level chuck. After a lot of years with screw drives and face plates, it is a wonderful, huge step in safety and versatility. Scroll chucks are a different and much better way of mounting stock and turning it. I am extremely happy with it and reviews consistently give it high marks. If turning is your primary interest, you might consider a higher-end chuck. Nova is always highly regarded.

Our LBJ turners might be able to help you even more.
