Most woodturners don’t like talking about making funnels. I don’t get it, these are fun.

Catalpa 6” long x 4” spray lacquer The other is ash, 3 and 1/2” x 4 and 1/2 ”.

Yes, I get it, but they are fun to make and talk about.

Pretty cool!

I have not seen wooden funnels before. Great looking custom kitchen stuff. Good for all sorts of dry goods. Nice…..................

Catalpa looks like a beautiful wood. Is it difficult to work? Thanks for sharing.

Thanks!

Catalpa is great, it cuts easy but sanding is tough. The light wood between the dark grain streaks is softer, and I can wind up with a wavy surface if I’m not careful. It is considered one of the more stable American hardwoods. I love it.

Nice job on the funnel and great grain pattern. I’ll bet it will come in handy.

Hi Hairy, I’ve never heard of turning a funnel before, you have done a nice job on that one.

Thanks for sharing this unusual project Hairy.

I have a catalpa tree. I never even thought about it being a workable wood. It will be awhile on this one… I just got the worms finally this year.
