Two projects which I’ve been working on, now complete. Both of these have been featured, more or less, in my recent forum postings about Chucking methods, and segmented assembly tips. Well, here they are, the item on the left is, well..? A jewelry box, covered candy dish, or bedside container for your false teeth. The item on the right is a Greek urn,(awright, Roger Clark), mortar sans pestle, or spittoon! These items were created with no clearly designed style or purpose in mind, mostly built so I could get the hang of segmented joinery and hollow-form techniques on the lathe. Photobucket Photobucket
Heyyy.. that’s my new #2 plane lurking in the background! How did it get there, I wonder? There’s 149 pieces in the covered one, 88 pieces in the one on the right. I really did use up a lot of waste stock and marginally useful materials this way. Poplar, purpleheart, walnut, mahogany red oak and maple, a Mulligan’s stew of wood species. Hope you like these projects!! Now…these two were fun, but it’s time to clean up the shop and get busy with some serious projects.

I’d say you’ve got the segmenting thing down. I like them both. That’s a great way to get rid of odds and ends in the shop. Segmenting is on my to do list. You’ve given me something to shoot for. Good job!

Thanks, Darell! I gotta give credit to the You-Tube videos of ‘Max Sisk’ a 90 yr old turner who has a series of 4 videos, start to finish, starting with this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9bSa0Bvz7qQ&feature=related then click on parts 2,3, and 4 for the whole procedure. Fascinating, and helpful!

Looking good buddy. What’s a Grecian urn? Union rates, same as anyone else.

Hey, BigTiny….yeah, that joke is older than dirt, but still funny! I was sure that Roger Clark would be the first one to chime in on that one. Hope to see some lathe projects posted by you in the near future! Thanks for commenting!

You did a great job on those. Scrap pieces do come in handy at times.
