I want to build a device for routing in or on, the lathe .To add fluting or such decoration to spindles bowls boxes etc.
This device would sit above the ready turned article and with a sliding motion add very desirable cuts/decoration virtually to anything turned which could be left alone as is or filled with filler and using different colours add a nice touch to an already turned piece.
I have already experimented with using different colours in my turnings Bowls mostly with great success.I wonder if any avid turners here have designed,or built such a thing and what the pitfalls are?
It should be multi directional for best results and will take a bit of thinking out before you reach a desired device as it may need several trials and errors before success is reached iI strogly suspect.
If anyone here has any of the 500 series of books including 500 bowls you will see some staggeringly beautiful effects some turners have achieved anyone want to throw in any of their ideas etc please do so as I await with great interest your plans and ideas much Love Alistair ps I have now lost 2 stones or 28 pounds LOL
