Topic tags/keywords: turning lathe router jig tip

A great technique that I’d like to try from an old episode of New Yankee Workshop.

Here’s the link to the video … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hqWBnMp3aNY

I about cried at the 14:05 mark. When he drew the circle on that walnut blank he was going to turn I was yelling at the computer ”NO! NO! DONT CUT IT! You gonna throw away the most beautiful part of the wood! Use it all! ”
He sure cut away a lot of material from that walnut blank!

I know I watched many videos like this one John when I first got started in turning. As far as log hunting goes, I’m constantly on the lookout for something interesting. Take a break from your toys and build a bowl. Ha ha. Who knows, you may end up using it in your next project.

I remember the Ringmaster bowl maker which was/is intended to make bowls with a router. I first saw this at a woodworking shaw in Rockford Illinois back in the late ‘70’s.

Maybe this was the precursor to the Legacy Ornamental Mill, John.

For me, the technique with the MONSTER equipment was just as interesting as the bowls he produced.
Taking a high-speed tool to a huge, slow-turning chunk of log made a lot of sense—safety and control.
It’s a solution to a problem that I’m filing between my ears … but I’ll probably be working at a slightly smaller scale. :-)

That video was extremely interesting because of the equipment which is older that many of the jocks on this site!

I have to agree with Joe, a good coring tool would save a lot of that wood and make more bowls, but adapting it
to the big lathe would be a lot of work, but it would also be a lot of fun, and it would not take more than a few
weeks or months, or maybe longer.
