Topic tags/keywords: alder cherry maple walnut bloodwood lathe turning

Here is the first one

It is a winged bowl made from Figured Black Walnut and it 11” long and 6” wide and 2.5” deep

The next one is a glued up vase with the inner core of 1.5×1.5×12 black walnut then maple, cherry and last black walnut again. On the upper 1/3 I glued up 4 pieces of wood consisting of 1/8 cherry and 3/8 Bloodwood which a friend gave me from his flooring. This was then glued up on the upper part. Then all was turned away to what you see now.

Next were some Cigar holders and a wooden match holder I made for the cigars all made from Spanish Ceder. The holders fit a #57 #51 and #47 size cigars. The match holder hold 25 wooden matches

Next is a bowl made from Red Alder and it was really nice with red streaks going thru it. It is 7” across and 4” deep and it was just made for a cereal bowl.

That is it folks. Every thing was made to be given away for a cause or benefit.

Stunning stuff here, Arlin! The winged bowl is gorgeous. The lids on the cigar and match holders, are they friction fit or threaded?

Awesome work, Arlin! I like the winged bowl and the vase.

By the way, how are you doing with the GoFundMe account for your effort to teach woodworking to veterans? Last I heard, you almost had enough collected to file the papers for the non-profit status.

Arlin,

Hope you had a great Christmas with your loved ones. I’m with Joe on the Vase, and I am pretty sure the bowl was a super challange. Keep up the good work!

Candy

They are friction fit with the Pop sound. I also on the lip put powered Brass so it would not move during the weather changes. That way a friction fit will always fit.
