Very nice turning, Steve. The burned design on the bottom is really nice, too. How did you get that design ready to burn? Looks complicated.

Beautiful!

 

How long did it have to dry before the final turning?

Thanks Lew, I usually give bigger bowls a year or so, that one I probably roughed three years ago or more, not really sure.

It is ridiculously easy to draw as are most zentangle patterns. 

Holy cow...amazing...I had no idea you were hand drawing these first. If you've told us, I've forgotten or missed that. Thanks for the video and process description. I'm going to show this video and the terminology to my oldest grand-daughter...She's pretty artistic and is currently taking a graphic arts class. She probably already knows but if not, maybe I can impress her for a change.:P

 

You still burn these in though right?

 

BTW, great bowl. Quite a lot of unique grain pattern for maple. Good decision on your final finish IMO.

...and yet you still remembered where it was at.:D Amazing...I can't find the pencil or tape measure I put down 10 minutes ago.:lol:

Dave, in  the interest of full disclosure I do draw them by hand first but I use some aids. I lay it out either with a compass or the index on my lathe(index on this one) and I use a french curve when drawing the arcs. It is burned by hand following the drawn pattern. Hope you're not too disappointed! :) Suggest you do a youtube search for "ellen wolters", she is a really good zentangle artist and an excellent teacher of the art form.

 

As for me finding it after three years, I've got bowls stashed all over the shop, prolly tripped on it one too many times and decided to get it out of the way.

Not in the least. I appreciate you sharing the "secret" and technique.

Ah so you use the old, even a blind squirrel finds a nut once in a while form of inventory & logistics management. Now you're speaking in terms I understand.:lol::D
