Dang, there's always a learning curve isn't there? Still, looks good from here.

If you did the first one and it was perfect all the fun would be used up with one shot.  Looks good though.  Looking forward to see where it goes from here.

This is the first try with the off center chuck.

For a rookie when it comes to turning what is this?  What effect does it create?

Off center turning creates elliptical or tri corner pieces such as tool handles. Or patterns on platters. This is a video Lew linked to last month.

 

This is another by Wyoming  Woodturner

Tried a small platter today. And discovered 

1. Difficult to get same depth on each cut

2. Detail gouge will work but is difficult to control and har to get same cut on all rings. 

3. So far the point tool has done the best job

4. Tear out can occur and is a pain to get out.

the platter is round. The tear out could be my approach. Going to try some tape or markings(sharpie) to get the same position for both cuts and then will try a three part cut.

By Easy Wood straight holler I am not sure but I do have the Hunter #1 hollower and will try.

   One thing about doing this is that ( like using a router on lathe) you can erase your mistake and redo as long as the piece was thick enough. This one I erased part  of the tear out and left the center to take to club meeting next week.

I made a little cup or box this weekend out of green Bradford Pear and mine split and warped but I figured it would. I noticed yours didn't.

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.
