Topic tags/keywords: wenge ash maple lathe turning rustic arts and crafts

Just remember I do all my turning from a chair and want to encoruage anyone who might me disabled to say’
Yes I can turn too.

This is a piece of curly maple. I added regular food dye of Blue and Yellow to the top and left the bottom natural. In the small bowl I painted it Gold metalflake.

The next one I made for dried flowers to be put into. The wood is elm and I made it round and them cut it in half then mounted it on a piece of Wenge and 1/8 brass rods. The top is ebonized with black india ink.

Last is a elm crotch bowl.

The finish on the bowl is True Oil which is gun stock oil and it works great.

I am waiting for a friend who does pro DVDs and I will be making a insperational DVD on giving encouragement and to start and how to do turning by handicapped.

I can say it is very different way of turning since we can not move our bodies or arms the way others can, however, great things CAN be done.
