  1. Finally got to work on the second bowl and its coming out quite nicely. If its not too nasty out tomorrow I may get both of them finished up...
  2. So doing the lamination thing again this morning I made a run to home depot. I managed to pick up a 6 foot length of Pine lumber. it was a bit bigger than I was expecting it to be how ever I managed to get what I needed out of it. Unfortunately I tried looking for poplar and or maple wood... But they haven't gotten in a shipment of hardwood lumbers at all lately I'm assuming from the causes of the fires down in California... That's at least what the clerk told me. So I wound up buying the pine. I'm hoping that it will make a decent set of bowls and turn easily. I cut it down to the leng
  3. Started off on a new project this morning. Got it in the works already. This one is turning out already 100 times better shaped it in a matter of minutes. Started sanding on it its only at 60 grit but that took care of pretty much all of the tool marks on the outside of the bowl so I'm quite happy with this one. I think I will keep working with the tung oil finish on it. It should work quite well... It did okay with the purple heart I just had to do three coats of it instead of one or two. But the main reason I dislike this type of wood is the danged orange dust it just gets every where
  4. So did a double recording turned a Yellow Birch bowl. It did not come out the best looking. But I will finish it off at a later point. How ever I used a new camera my nikkon but I think I will skip on recording on the iphone for now and use the nikkon primarily so I will need to look around for better camera mounts. But here is the mostly finished product. I've got more blanks coming in soon had to pick up some glue from Home Depot this morning. Tried out video in video and I don't really like it too much. Its too much of a pain to edit. Either way hopefully the video turned out somewh
  5. Picked up about 4 feet of maple this morning from Home Depot. Good thing its literally next door. I was only able to find a 5 1/2 inch width board of maple cut to 4 foot of length. So these will be on the smaller side of bowls I'm normally used to doing how ever. I've got several Christmas gifts I've got to make before December. Time is going to be going by quite quickly. I can't really run power tools until after 8 am in the morning here in the park. Its just a common courtesy thing. So 8 am rolled around and I got the board cut up. I was able to get about 8 pieces of 5 1/2 so I did
  6. So this morning I've started on the second of the canary bowls. How ever I decided to try something new with the bottom. Not sure if it was a wise move. Not sure if it was even think able or I just wasted my time. I am not exactly sure how much room this will leave me for hollowing out the inside. But I guess we shall see. If you guys have any thoughts on this one I'm all ears. I'm just about finished with shaping the outside of the bowl.
  7. Okay so I have a MINOR problem. When I origionally went to mount the face plate to the blood wood blank. Welp I ran into a bit of a problem. The screws got stuck the wood is so dense. I had to unscrew three of them using a set of vice grips. Talk about a pain. The problem being one of the screws is still stuck in the blank it decided to break off just below the surface of the blank. I chipped it out a little bit with a hand chisel so I could see the broken screw. Either way I'm going to start on the outsides of the bowl and get it to shape. What I am trying to figure out now is how th
  8. As of 7 PM last night I started a new bowl project. Out of Elm. Seems that if I have the stock pile of material I can turn out a bowl in about 24 hours so it seems. This one how ever is taking a bit longer. I've gotten the side walls MUCH thinner than normal as well as the interior bottom of the bowl is much thinner. I would compare Elm wood almost identical to Myrtle wood the way it turns. I mean the carbide tips just cut through it like butter. The process is going well. Its been shaped and sanded on the outside and now hollowed out on the inside sanding yet to happen. In the proces
  9. So I've decided to give out Bhilwara a try. I got the blanks I ordered today I still have an outstanding Bloodwood blank in transit. How ever I wanted to see how well this wood would look. Seems like it will make a nice small bowl for a cheaper bit of wood. Either way this project should be fun and I will get video footage of this as well. But I can say it is a pretty tough wood to cut through. Even drilling on the pre drills for the face plate mounting screws was tough almost started a fire with the drilling. I plan on getting that going shortly.
  10. Well either way, I'm starting a NEW project on a bowl.... This one will be my mothers birthday gift although it will be late I think she'll be happy with it when its finished up. I've never tried working with Birtch wood before so I wanted to try it. Fortunately home depot has plenty in stock. I bought a 12 foot section of board at 5 dollars a foot. That crap AINT cheap. I cut the board down to size. I took one of the bowls I had previously done. After the glue finished up drying. I went down drew out the lines. I'm still going to finish letting the glue cure up on the the lathe. Its
  11. I was originally going to just toss this in the yard waste bin....
  12. This piece is full of cracks, knots, holes.... and I love it! I can't stop picking it up. I love the colors and grain patterns in this. Anyone have a guess as to what this is? 11-1/2" X 3-1/4" beeswax finish.
