I have been hard pressed to get a decent picture of these.Hopefully this does them a tad of justice. I have been trying to upgrade the humble “vessel from a board” and give it new interest. maybe it’s a losing cause, maybe not. I’ll keep at it for awhile longer. I hate giving up. the 2 on left are shedua, and the right one is black limba.

I think you’ve done the projects justice, as the grain of the wood is quite beautiful and interesting, not to mention the turnings themselves. I would not have thought that a simple board could be turned into such a fine vessel.

I’m new to turning so forgive me for asking, but what do you mean by a board. It doesn’t look like it is made from one piece of wood. Please explain.

Hi rmoore. they are made from a board. 3/4 inch thick lumber. 1/4 inch rings are cut from the lumber & stacked. check out the blogs here on Lj’s. I’m sure there have been projects built this way. Try the video section too. I make mine differently than most as I cut my rings on the lathe from a flat board, but it is the same concept. Good luck & enjoy, if you decide to make a few!

As a new turner with a lot of flat boards laying around it sounds like a great idea. I see that people make bowls for boards but a box or vessel should work too. After you cut the rings you cut the top from another piece?

Thanks, Jonathan

hi johnathan..I did it like this so they would match..say a 8×16 board..cut into 8×8..then the grain matches ..not totally necessary obviously..so yes you cut one into rings, and then glue the top on.
