Not been doing a lot in the way of turning as I am a good 3/4 of the way through making a car rocker. While the paint is drying I am making three tea light stand for dinning table(still need varnishing) again waiting for glue to dry, so I thought that I would turn a piece of yew that I had sitting around with a fault in it.
Below is the end result as stated made from Yew and stands 5” tall 3” across also managed to get wall thickness down between 1/8” to 3/16”

These things never really interested me much.

Until I got a lathe and realized what would happen if I tried to make something like that. It would certainly explode all over the place the second the tool crossed the gap.

Nothing quite like trying it yourself to help you to appreciate other people’s accomplishments.

Nice piece! :)

I love it, it’s gorgeous, and I can’t imagine how you turned this without it vibrating apart.

Absolutely gorgeous bowl! Beautiful shape and those grain patterns look amazing. The crack just added some character to it. Excellent turning!

Have your say...
