Topic tags/keywords: ash cherry maple walnut lathe turning traditional

The first 2 are a spalted maple bowl and saucer that were very very punky. I use about 1oz of CA glue to start off with and as I went down I added more to keep it hardened.

Next is a lidded box about 3 1/2 tall and 4” wide and made from Red Palm and White Oak

Next one is another lidded box made from Chocka Viga (sp) it is a Caribbieion (sp) Rosewood

The last is several pens I made. When I have not been turning for along time I start off by turning pens to get back into the turning mode again.

The red one I made from a piece of sweetcorn. I let it dry out for about a week and them put about 1/2oz of CA glue on it to make it hard. I turned it to almost finished and them added the red (To give to a Cornhusker fan) and added more CA and finished turning down to a 7mm.

Enjoy

Once I start turning, I’ll have to give the corn cob pen a spin!!!

Beautiful. That spalted maple is hard stuff to keep straight. I turned one wet once and I had to wrestle with that thing for two months. It’s still giving me fits with the finish. Just dowsed it with mineral spirits to see if I can get something to lay down on it. Problem was that I used spray varnish, then forgot and tried to poly over it. What I couldn’t sand out is why the mineral spirits. Seems to be working and I may have kicked its butt finally. lol

Thank you so much guys.

I sent you a pm on woodturning books/DVDs I recemmend.

It is not so much as spalting and the Punky wood. It was all throughout the wood, but well worth saving.
