Now, that's about the neatest thing I've seen. They're beautiful, and I second Lew's observation. That took some extra special cogitation.

I just can't visualize things that far ahead.  It's a beautiful ornament.

Artie, as a SS owner, I fear that our start speed of 750 rpm may be too much for finish turning of the outside near the image.  I am just guessing here, but once turned right side out, isn't the speed from 300 to 500?  Somebody set me straight please on doing the outside turning and speeds.

I have the electronic motor, I think the slowest speed is 250 rpm, but I’m not swearing to that.

I see no reason to use slow turning speeds.  I spin them at normal spindle turning speeds.  When they are turned to the outside there is a lot more glue surface used making the final turning a lot stronger.  The areas circled in red in the picture below are glue surfaces on all four sides when it is turned for the outside and final turn so they can be spun at normal turning speeds safely as long as your pieces were cut square and true at the start to make a good glue joint.  This is the first turn for the inside.  Notice the tightly wrapped fiber tape on the ends.  There is less glue than the tape is wide.  It is surprising how hard it is to break apart when it is time to.

 

Preparation is key.  Square parts and careful gluing is perferred.

I was thinking of the second and final glue up.  Yes, in this position you should be able to run up to normal speeds, but when it is hollow, I would be very afraid and maybe without justification, but I had a cherry bowl to blow apart on me, so I am scarity cat.  LOL  I was not sure of the speed when it is in its hollow position.  Thanks, Dan.  

 

Yep, Artie, you start about 250 rpm.  I don't remember at the moment.  You should be able to do this with no problems.

Speed is not a problem when doing inside out turning because it is spindle turning. Many ways to get off on it but too much pressure fron the tailstock can split the work.
