Just a quick look at what’s been going on in the shop recently. I’ve been geeting wood and ideas in droves and I have been actively pushing some techniques.

#1 is a cherry hollowform that is actually the one from my self supported hollowing system post witht he video. I carved and tinted the bottom with colored gesso.

#2 is a very large ash vessel that is hollowed in two pieces. The top section is cut where the bead is and joined with Titebond to the lower section. By making it in two sections, I was able to make the entire vessel in about 2 hours. Currently sitting in a paper bag drying, and by gluing it up with the grain lines, has not moved enough to break the glue joint. This one is a bit heavy, 2 3/8” or so towards the bottom. Next one will be a uniform 1/4” up to 1/8” at the top.

#3 was cut like #2, but carved and textured like #2. Cherry, white gesso

#4 is just a walnut crotch. I may just sand it out and leave it “plain”, or perhaps use it as another patina project… who knows?

Steve, that first one looks like tiles. Nice effect. Good to see your ideas used. Nice work, as always.

Great collection of work. My favorite is the tiled urn. The tall one is a real technical challenge. Well done!

Thanks for all the kind words. I never thought of the cherry one as being tiled, but that’s what lots of folks are saying, so who am I to argue?

@Bob- The tall one was made in two pieces in less than 2 hours. Not hard to do at all, and very qucik work. I might bring it to the meeting and call it “a large salt shaker…”;-)

Hi Steve, You had me fooled on the first one. I thought you had tiled them also. Great piece, craftmanship – excellent. You’re my kind of guy – a bit off the wall!!!

From my first viewing, I thought that the segmented area of #1 was made from adhering pieces of agate or other colorful stone to the bottom section of the turned form. Very clever technique!
