  1. Walnut bowl, not quite round

    I roughed this bowl a few years ago and left some bark on it. By the time I got around to finish turning it the bark was pretty well toast. Rather than reduce the diameter I sanded those areas flat. I kind of like it but not sure if I'd do it again. Finish is fast drying gloss poly applied while spinning slowly. Of course I had to drop it right after I took it off the lathe, oh well, adds character I guess. Steve

  3. Cutting up a maple tree

    Long and wordy, go away now if you're smart. Regulars know I've had a good year. Spent a whole week learning from Glenn Lucas, more recently did a workshop day Cindy Drozda. Glenn's main source of income is bowls, lots of them. He will routinely process around three hundred or more bowls at a time, I think that's right. Everything from chainsawing the blanks to drying, to finishing. He has retail outlets that sell his bowls and order regularly. Cindy Drozda is known for her delicate finials, elegant hollow forms and working with exotic one of a kind pieces of wood. Most of her items are one off and sell for a pretty penny. She also makes money from selling tools. Today, I started working up the maple log I posted a picture of earlier this week. Put on my carharts, my steel toed boots, my loggers helmet and ear plugs, my leather gloves, etc. etc. etc. Fired up the chainsaw, muscled the blanks around and trimmed them up, coated them with sealer, stacked them, etc. etc. Arms feel like rubber tonight, legs are sore, back aches a little. After much reflection I have decided...Cindy has a better plan than Glenn. Steve
  4. My latest effort

    This started out as a 8" x 8" x 2" piece of poplar. After that, the picture pretty much tell the story. It is intended for use as a fruit bowl, hence the green rim. That, by the way, didn't go as expected. I purchased a green paint pen from Hobby Lobby, intending to hold it against the rim with the lathe on its lowest speed, but the pen was the type that you have to keep depressing the nib on the end to pump the paint to the tip. That, of course, didn't work with the bowl turning, so I would up having to pump some paint to the tip, get it on the rim of the bowl, and actually "draw" it onto the rim, while periodically turning on the lathe to even out the application. It eventually worked OK, but next time I will figure out something different.
  5. What do you see?

    This is supposed to look like a rock wall or rocks in a bed of mortar. My wife says she likes it but doesn't think of rocks when she sees it. What do you see? what can I do to make it look more like a rock wall? Appreciate any and all thoughts, comments, or ideas. Oh yea, it's a work in progress. Actually, a try piece before I do this on a larger form. Honest opinions please. Steve
  6. Little pine bowl

    scrap from a 4x6 beam. will be stained and poly'd, then given as a gift to a Lady who is letting me hunt on her ranch next month.
  7. I have always wanted to take a shot at making some bowls so I finally got serious and ordered some bowl gouges last winter. A co- worker had a Hickory tree come down and I got a few pieces of it to try. Here is my first attempt at live edge turning and my first glued up bowl as well. I took them to the county fair and the live edge bowl earned a blue in the woodcrafts category while the glued up bowl took a red in recycled items. The live edge bowl is Hickory. The other is reclaimed Walnut beam, part of an Osage Orange fence post, and a scrap of Oak house trim. I really enjoyed these projects and plan to do more. Much to learn with the lathe.
  8. Very First Live edged bowl

    Started it this AM the wood is elm, damp but mostly dry so I'm going for finished dimensions.
  9. Over the past week or two I've been working on a little bowl turning it from some ironwood a friend sent me. Being this was my first experience with this wood and not knowing how it would turn, it's been slowly progressing. Well I got it almost finished. Inside turned and sanded, outside turned and sanded all that was left was to finish off the bottom. I really liked the calabash rounded look for the bottom so I would need to chuck the piece to have full access to the bottom. A doughnut chuck seemed to be the best option. When I turned the lip, I knew it was a little thin, but it felt solid. Light passing thru the lip/side transition- I was so proud of myself- Nice shape, sanded much better than I usually do. And then it happened- I was just ready to switch over to the Easy Wood Finisher when I got a catch- The force of the catch cracked the rim lip- Too much time invested in this little bowl to pitch it out. But how to remount it? The tenon is gone and the rim is uneven. After some thought and 15 minutes of US Navy adjectives, I repurposed an old lathe jig into a jamb chuck adding a piece of rubber for friction/protection. Made a flat on the bottom of the bowl and then glued it to a wooden faceplate. After the glue set, I realized I should have made a "paper"glue joint for easier removal later. Not sure what I'm going to end up with- certainly not what I originally envisioned when I started!
  10. Beautiful Spalted Bowl

    9" Spalted Coastal Goldenleaf "Bridelia Micrantha" East Coast South Africa Port Shepstone area. This is a section from a crotch cut (Inner section of a fork in a tree for the uninformed)
  11. First bowl

    Nice looking bowl Tom. I remember chasing my first bowl across the shop a couple times after a bad catch. Be sure to post it in the Turning Forum. We could use the extra traffic over there Had to do a copy and paste of a comment by HandyDan from the Woodworking forum, since I didn't know how to quote and migrate to another forum. Good suggestion Dan, here it is. The title is a little misleading, as my really first bowl wound up in pieces in the trash can. This is the bowl I turned at the basic bowl turning class I went to at the Woodcraft store in Tulsa. I picked up a mid size EWT rougher there also, and am anxious to put together a blank and try it out. The wood is Sycamore, finished with a coat of sanding sealer, and a coat of high friction polish. I didn't know there was such a thing until I took the class.
  12. Another natural edge walnut.

    I've still got at least dozen of the natural edge walnut pieces to finish up. Was kind of between projects and decided to sand and finish this one. I chose this one because it looked like my cuts were decent and it wouldn't take as much sanding as some of the others. It's about 16X12X5.5. The bark is just really nice on this one I think. It was just about to big for my little photo booth. Steve
  13. Something to look forward to.

    For the last few years I've wanted to do a week at one of the wood working or craft schools. There is a highly regarded school in Franklin IN. Marc Adams School of Woodworking. Glenn Lucas will be there in Sept. and I just registered to attend. Really looking forward to it. Steve
  14. bishopwood bowl

    From the album Bowls and Platters

    Bishopwood was a bit hard and had cracked accross grain but turned well.
  15. A tale of two bowls, night and day

    I have a couple bowls in the finishing process and a thought just struck me. How many times have I been asked what is my favorite wood to turn? I would be willing to bet, every wood turner has been asked that question several times. With that, here are the bowls I'm working on. First one is maple, this bowl is about 13" in diameter and I think the grain in it is just spectacular. It has some really nice quilting in several areas and maple just really finishes nicely. The second bowl is walnut, a little smaller at about 11". Like the maple bowl, I think the grain in this walnut bowl is simply beautiful. No special markings, just that rich, chocolate shade that is walnut. I guess I would have to say, right now, maple and walnut are my two favorite woods to turn. I really can't narrow it down any further than that. I suspect that's subject to change the next time I get into some nice cherry, or ash, or sycamore, or spalted maple, or....... I mean, seriously, how can you pick just one favorite? Steve
  16. wingbowl

  17. Some Eye Candy

    At the yard where I picked up some mesquite was a shop where the yard owner's work was displayed. Thought you might enjoy seeing some of it.
  18. I say that just about every time but this one could be special I think. About 19" diameter and five inches deep. Spectacular grain and markings in it as well. There's going to be a bit of sanding and I'll probably let it dry for a couple months but if it turns out I'm going to call it "ET" Steve
  19. Yet another walnut bowl

    Turned natural edge again. I've got probably 20 or 25 of these in process, so, fair warning. This one is just over 12" long by about 9" wide and 4" deep. Walnut just really lends itself to this style of bowl I think. The grain is pretty but not spectacular so I put a little wood burning on the bottom. Thanks for looking Steve
  20. Candy Bowl

    Yellow Labs are the pet of choice for my best friend and his wife. I found this figurine at one of the thrift stores and wanted to use it as the handle on a candy bowl I was making for them. It didn't look right so I gave it to them along with the candy bowl and used a porcelain knob for the handle. They were pleased.
  21. Bowl contest.

    I went to Woodcraft to buy a few things and one of the guys that works there asked me if I would enter my bowl in the contest. He said most of them are from a lathe, not many are from a scroll saw. Wish me luck.
  22. Walnut crotch bowl

    There was a lot more sap wood in this bowl than I expected. Still, the bark stayed on well and it warped nicely without cracking. The sapwood also makes a nice contrast I think. The bottom side. Steve
  23. Little Elm Bowls

    Turned 'em set 'em aside to dry and the little buggers went all changeling on me Too cute for them to be too ugly or sumpin'
  24. Posted a while back showing some walnut I was working into bowl blanks. With Christmas requests and some other distractions I'm just now getting time to start making bowls. Most of them will be natural edge as that shows the crotch grain so much better. Most of that gets turned away in a normal bowl. This is the fourth bowl so far. Still will need to dry for a couple weeks and then get remounted, sanded, and finish the bottom. Picture doesn't show it well but there is some great grain in the bottom of this bowl. It's gonna be a pretty thing. It does make a mess though. Steve
  25. It's been a busy few days

    I posted some picture a couple weeks ago of some walnut I'd scored. I spent the last few days working it into some bowl blanks. Basically I made a big mess in the back yard. I've still got three more little crotch pieces to cut into blanks but almost done. Did these this morning, some of them are near 20" diameter and may end up as platters, still haven't convinced myself a 20" bowl is a good idea. So far I've gotten just over 20 blanks, almost all of them crotch areas and I can tell there is going to be some really nice grain in them. Got my work cut out for me over the next few weeks though. It will give me a chance to practice with my coring system. I've still got two more huge sections of walnut to get home. They are big enough, I'll have to work them down before I can even load them in my truck. Figure there is another 20 blanks or so still to be had. Steve
