Here are a few more of my recent projects. The bowls and vase were made using my Ringmaster – the Bloodwood heart box was made on the bandsaw and the picture frame was, well you all know how that was made. It’s Maple and Cocobolo.

Very nice Bill.
I’m have to see what a Ringmaster is. I kind of remember seeing something like, but can’t remember where.

Is the ringmaster still in production. I used to see them at the woodshows, but haven’t seen them lately.

Very nice… Why didn’t you post these in the projects section? I almost missed these. Segmented bowls are on my to-do list. The bottom one looks like it’s all from the same board.

Hay Scott it is from the same board. That what makes the Ringmaster so unique.

I thought so… I saw a write up recently of how to bandsaw rings from a board, so you could stack them, glue it up, and a quick clean up was all it took to go from board to bowl. I expect the ringmaster is similar (or easier)

Thanks guys. The Ringmaster is an incredible piece of equipment. You can make a bowl, vase, etc. from a single piece of wood. For example I can take a 12”x12”x3/4” piece of walnut and create a 12” diameter bowl from that single piece of wood. Gary Neely is the owner of the Wooden Post (ringmaster distributor) and he has all sorts of woodworking goodies available. Also a great guy to talk sawdust with. I have a couple of gadget machines that I spent way too much on. I also have a Carve Wright cnc carving machine. It’s fun – but a bear to master the “learning curve”.

The machines are fun – but I am really trying to hone my woodworking skills, so I have thoroughly enjoyed your forum. I’ll post to the projects section next time, I’m still trying to figure this all out.
