Have you done training blogs on these turnings? You are way out of my league! Do you do this for a living?

Hey Mike, thanks for the feedback. I do not do this full time. I will be doing a blog here on Lumberjocks in May or June. I will discuss how I do hollow forms from start to finish.

Another masterpiece Joe. Love the white and tan mix (is that bleached in or sapwood?)....you get such great blanks to start with….then of course the beautiful work that you do to them….

Wow, a blog from you Joe would be excellent. I’d love to see how you turn such beautiful work.

Thanks…this piece is all natural. Yea, the blog should be a lot of fun. I’m still working out some of the details in my head. I will probably do a series starting from selecting wood through applying the finish and all points in between. I am hoping some Lumberjock buddies will follow along with their own hollow forms and post their progress and ask questions.

Trifern,

If your blog is half as good as your blog on dying your turnings, I’m sure it will become an instant classic that turners will send the link to everyone they know.

Heck, I don’t wanna sound too dumb but I just can’t see where the title comes from I see a face and the such, but no cat. Anyway… I really like this piece. With the sapwood/hardwood contrast it is quite striking. At first, I thought it was walnut because of the dark wood.

Thanks for all the feedback. I don’t see a feline either. I see a cartoon like face of a fun loving guy.

This wood came from my parents yard. I used to climb this tree in my youth. The story is one day I was getting into mischief by climbing on the tree. My mother kept yelling “Joseph, get down from there before you get hurt.” I kept ignoring her and she kept yelling.

After a while, a friend of the family, Joe Mangieri, came over and apologized to my mother. He was across the street building a house. He was up on a ladder and thought my mother was yelling at him.

Mr. Mangieri never let me forget this story. As I grew older, I realized all his good friends called him “cat…”

Fasinating, it’s a bit like looking at rolling clouds, we each “see what we see” if this is rotated 90 to the right I can see a cat, curled with a spread fluffy tail for sure, maybe thats because we have four cats & a dog & the numerous poses / angles we see simply suggests a cat to my eye, possibly reinforced by the title!? interesting eh
I have superimposed a sketch but dont know how to post it ? could be my browser!!

Nice Joe, I’ll be looking forward to that blog. I am really looking forward to seeing what tools you use. There are so many types and I’m sure some better than others but all are expensive enough that you’d better like it if you’re going to buy it. When I first saw this piece I was sure it was cherry.
