Everyone does bowls, then hollowing, then acrylics. Lately I noticed a lot of surface colors. I have to say, although they are amazing, I still prefer to see the natural color of the species. I found a couple of pieces of white oak left over from a gun rack I made for a friend. The pieces were cutoffs and about 12" wide and 1"+ thick. Thinking about making something- maybe a platter. Turning the years of storage dirt away, the wood was true to its name- white. The grain was nondescript. Played around a little with some coloring ideas. I thought maybe black toner cartridge dust might fill the pores- not so much- but it did make an almighty mess on the lathe. Then tried brown paste shoe polish- not bad. Then black opaque resin dye- about the same. Last was amber transparent resin dye- better. Keep in mind I was only trying to accentuate the grain pattern- not color the entire surface. Applied the color and then skimmed the surface. Brown shoe polish- Black opaque resin dye- Amber transparent resin dye- I might just use oil based poly to give the piece a nice mellow glow. Who says you can't get curlies from carbide cutters- Safe turning and stay well

This popped up while I was writing this weeks "Wednesday's...". Last weeks woodturning videos from Rick Turns- Sometime back, @Gerald, commented that he was surprised I didn't have a vacuum chuck. Although I have considered adding one, up until today I've always been able to use my shop made chucks/jigs to hold any turning. I was tinkering with a glue-up and decided to try a square bowl. My new Jet lathe has a 16" swing and I decided to go as large as possible. That calculated out to be a square a little over 11" on a side. Reversed it and turned the "bowl". Then when I went to finish off the bottom- getting rid of the mortice- I discovered that my Cole jaws just weren't quite big enough. Same with my shop made Longworth chuck. Finally tried my oldest (first), large shop made chuck. Got it to fit but absolutely nothing to spare! Needs more sanding and some finish. Safe turning and stay well
