Hello, what’s everyone turning out there? I’m getting into segmented turning and bowl from a board, next will be open segment turning.

Just picked up a duplicator and chess set templates. Never tried using a duplicator before. I have made a chess set free hand and it takes a little while.

Last thing i turned was a figured walnut bowl


Before that it was wood soldiers for Christmas gifts


And kitchen utensils



All on a Harbor Freight 10×18 mini lathe! Having way toomuch fun!

This was my last thing on the lathe –

I have a few more blanks but haven’t had time to start them. Wife wants a new kitchen table so I’ve got some legs to turn first.

Ron, the spring pole lathe is awesome. The lathe is one of the very few power tools still living in my shop.

I watch alot of different YouTube channels, check out Tom Lohman, he does some incredible open segment turnings, and Carl Jacobson for some all different types of turning. Also if anyone is looking for bowl blanks check out www.ozarkwoodsandmore.com

I just finished up a batch of rolling pins. I haven’t really ventured in to a production mode before but my aunt saw a photo of the rolling pin I made my wife for Christmas and she begged me to make some that she could put in a craft fair she hosts.

Other than that, I have been messing around with cottonwood I picked up for free. It smells like dog poop and it isn’t a great wood to work with, but I’m still honing my skills. I’ve done a dozen or so segmented bowls but only a few out of blanks so I am using the cottonwood for practice.
