    From the album: Turnings

  2. The local art council sponsors a non juried show every year for local artisans. It's a small show but it's still fun to enter. This year, I entered three pieces, ones you've all seen before. Two of them got recognition so I'm very happy about that. Just wanted to share my moment! Thanks for looking. Steve
  3. Hope I'm not wearing this out. Couldn't find an off the shelf stand to display the maple rocks bowl. They were either too light weight or hid too much of the bottom. I had an idea in mind but just wasn't happy with what I was doing. Spied a piece of gnarly cherry in my wood pile and started grinding on it. Here is the result. This is the piece of cherry, it's hard to tell from the picture but the bowl will sit in the little depression and it really looks pretty nice. I show it to my wife, she said she liked but it was a shame no one would see the underside because it was also very pretty. On a lark, I flipped the piece over and with just a little surgery the bowl sits very nicely there as well. Not especially happy with how the pictures show the bowl and stand but I hope you get the idea. From the underside of the bowl. For what it's worth. Wife told me if I have any more of those pieces I might to just make some of these to stand on their own. Steve
  4. Just finished this morning. I will say that I'm pretty happy with how this turned out. The rim is always a challenge for me as I'm never quite sure what to do with it. I had originally planned a herringbone pattern but nothing I drew looked right to me. It's about 12" diameter and not quite 5" deep. I'm sure I've posted this already but the design on the bottom is called "phicops in a circle" It's a zentangle pattern and the original author is Brad Harms-CZT Steve
  5. Last one of these for a while, or maybe not. They're fun to do. Maple with ash end caps. Five letter code. The pattern on the border rings was drawn in Delta Cad and Inkscape, I call it "star chain". The pointer is a generic Celtic pattern I cabbaged off the web. It's crazy how some projects get almost addictive. I have other things I need to be doing but these are just so much fun! Steve
  6. I've still got several of the natural edge walnut bowls to finish. Took this one in the house today. It's about 12" diameter and 6" deep. I burned one of my favorite zentangle patterns on the bottom, "phicops in a circle". Steve Steve
  7. This is my first cryptex and what a learning experience. It's really a pretty simple thing to make but dimensions are critical. I expect it will take two or three more before I get any I can use for gifts. I have to say I am thrilled at how well the rotary engraver worked once I got the pattern and spacing figured out. The rings have the alphabet on them but the code for each grand kid will be their birthday as it corresponds to the letters of the alphabet, won't tell them at first and see if one of them figures it out. I don't think they can guess it out as there are about 3 million combinations possible. I wasn't sure how long to make the barrels so I had to trim them off on the band saw, shouldn't be a problem on the next ones. From what I understand, these devices were used to transport sensitive messages. Supposedly the message would be written on parchment and a glass vial of vinegar was placed in with the message. A person couldn't break into the cryptex without breaking the vial which would dissolve the parchment. I don't know if all that's true but it makes a good story and these are kind of neat I think. FWIW, Carl Jacobson has three videos on making one of these and that's where I got the idea. Steve
  8. This is a piece for the project that lead to me first considering if I could build something like this to begin with. A rough guess would put this at probably 3 or 4 years from idea to this point. The rings will be for a project I've wanted to do for a long time but just didn't like any of the available options for the lettering. My hand wood burning skills are not up to the task for sure. Anyway, my plan is to make several of the project for Grand kid Christmas presents this year, each one will take six identical rings. That means I'll need close to 50 of these rings made. The one in the machine is a test/setup piece. The little laser is doing exactly what I envisioned. You may notice the "A" looks blurry, that's because I re targeted the laser to center the script. Now, I have a benchmark and subsequent rings will be right. The rings are about 2 1/2" in diameter and the burn area is 1/2" wide. Has everyone figured out what is the project? Steve
  9. A lady saw my "gnarly Christmas tree" video and asked if I could make her a tree to display her miniature, glass, hummingbird collection. Had a great piece of spalted beech I used for the base. I'm hoping she'll post some pictures after she gets her birds on it. Steve
  10. General forum for woodworking. Special sections for various areas . Nice turning section
  11. A maple bowl in kind of a tulip shape, 12" diameter and 4" deep. I thought about "framing" the pattern with some heavy shading around the edge, decided not to and just left it plain. I turned this to be functional so it has bees wax for a finish. Steve
  12. Yea, it stands for what you think it does. When I finish a bowl on the lathe I first finish the bottom and then hold the bowl with a vacuum chuck to finish the rest of it. I've been wanting to try the technique with brush on lacquer and I guess I was thinking about that and not much else. This bowl has one coat of shellac for sealer on it. I started it spinning and applied the shellac, then went in the house for a bit. When I go back out to the shop, the bowl is laying on the floor with several pieces of bark broken off. Luckily I keep a messy shop and there was a bed of shavings or it probably would've been worse. I have several lights over my lathe which are plugged into a switchable plug strip. I normally plug my vacuum pump into a separate outlet but not thinking I plugged it into the one I use for the lights. I ALWAYS turn my lights off when I leave the shop. Amazingly I was able to get the pieces glued back on and it's hard to tell they were even broken. Thank goodness for super glue. Steve
  13. Just pulled this off the lathe. Walnut is just the most amazing wood to me, the grain in walnut is always different and always spectacular IMO. Tried a new finishing technique(to me) on this piece. Left it spinning on the lathe and applied tung oil with a foam brush. That allows a wet heavy coat with no drips or sags. It's a technique I'll be using again I'm sure. This piece is 13" tall and about 7" major diameter. It's a pretty consistent 1/4" thick. Steve Just realized i didn't take a picture of the top, it's hollowed through 1-3/4" hole if I remember correctly.
  14. Haven't had a lot of time in the shop the past few days but I did get two more boxes done. These are also based on Liam O'neill's "crooked grain box" design. I like the grain in both of these but especially the one on the right. Both spalted beech and walnut. Four more to go for this project but I have the demo for the next meeting, figure I may as well do it on one of these. Steve
  15. What an amazing day! Cindy Drozda's full day demo was today. This lady is determined and committed to giving her audience their the best experience possible. Her attention to detail is ridiculous and her preparation is meticulous. She turned an elegant little finial box which she later presented to the club. She didn't make a cut without explaining what she was doing, why she was doing it, and how she was doing it. I highly recommend hosting her if you belong to a club. You won't be disappointed. Incidentally, the little inset in the underside of the lid is a diamond stud earring. She believes when someone picks up the lid they should have a nice surprise. She was also kind enough to offer her thoughts and suggestions on several members pieces. It really was a great day and I learned a lot. Tomorrow will be better as I and eight other members are doing a hands on day with her. Steve
  16. Haven't done one of these for a few years, wife wanted to know could I make some boxes for Christmas presents. Decided to copy liam O'neills "crooked grain box" style. Here is the first one. It's from a piece of spalted beech that surprised me with some nice ambrosia. The contrasting wood is walnut. She wanted them for the grandkids, when I showed here this one, she told me I could make different ones for the grandkids Steve
