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

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
