Ok guys how many of you could do this on a bandsaw. My friend Alex Snodgrass sent me these to work on. Those of you who know me know what I am going to do, turn them. The large chopping block is 12×12 x 3, walnut, cherry and maple. Yes a 3 d cube design. It went on the lathe today. I am in the dessert turning outdoors on my small lathe so I had to cut it down. Can you see a 9 inch bowl, a pepper grinder and a salt grinder setting on a cutting board I agree I cannot see it outside my won kitchen

As always C and C welcome

Ron

I am confused Ron. You are going to cut these up and turn the pieces? That can’t be right. I must have missed something.

You cut up those beautiful pieces? Now I want to cry.
But I know whatever you turn will be spectacular. Can’t wait to see the finished product!!! Ray

PS. I have seen Alex Snograss’s woodworking show videos on setting up a bandsaw but does he post his stuff on LJ’s?
I looked up his name but nothing come up. Maybe he has a nickname like mine?

Stumpy he does not yet post here. I have sent him a link to this post and hope he will start to post here. I have been working with him the last 6 years at the American Assoc of Woodturners Symposiums and have had a great time. We could all learn from him if he would post some here. I have a bowl turned rom what you have seen and will soon start on the other pieces. stay tuned for both of us
Thanks

I heard of crazy things people do, but this right up there, but Talent can do a lot to transform a fantastic cutting board into something more beautiful. Looking for something that will blow me away.

Those are beautiful Ron. Yes I can imagine and almost see the Bowl and grinders sitting on the cutting board.
That’s just like coring out five or six bowl blanks from one piece.
Absolutely making the most of something that is beautiful to start with.
I too, am looking forward to the end result.

Bob.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

What I see Ron is a couple of great looking boards which I would be proud off but knowing your turning ability anything is possible. Look forward to seeing the end result. Get him on LJ’s I would really like to see his work.

With all due respect for such precise work Ronald I do not think this would be hard to achieve using a bandsaw with a little help from a sanding jig to perfect the fit. If, on the other hand, your friend glued up his boards straight off the saw, then my hat is off to him.

I know your turnings using these boards as blanks will be wonderful.

Stefang I am not sure totally how Alex did this. I know they had to have some sanding. Alex will respond to this soon. He is a member on here but does not post

Bowl has been turned outside and today will hollow it

Oh, to have just a small block of that board. It would make a fantastic checker board boot! Waiting for the finished product.

Stumpy I would really like to post my videos here but I’m not sure how it’s done. I’m new to this social media thing. Ron has got me learning new avenues everyday. Love the response to our project.

Pete thanks for the comments.. Yes Alex is aware of what I am doing and he is so excited he cannot stand it. I have post a small view of the finished bowl on Facebook. Tomorrow I start to turn a pepper mill from the left over pieces. Did one today for practice and not happy with the shape. Wish me luck and keep an eye out for the finished pieces. Hope to have them done for the weekend
