  1. Obeche bowl ~3x6. Finished with Ack's and Odie's. .40
  2. 7.5x2. Burnt with a torch, wire bushed, ebonized, embellishing wax, rattle can glaze. Turned from an ash crotch found in a firewood pile. There were lots of cracks and repairs needed after drying making this particular piece of wood a candidate for the rough treatment above. .40
  3. Got addicted to making pens when I got my Shopsmith. Don't recall seeing many on here so was wondering if anybody else has had to deal with the pen turning addiction. This one was for a swap on another site. Had to be made with construction grade pine as the main ingredient. The dark wood is cocobolo. I think. Got over this obsession when I acquired my Ringmaster and headed off down that rabbit hole.
  4. 10 x 3 pecan spalted pecan bowl. .40
  5. This plate has been hanging around for a while and started out as just a test of spiraling. There was a cut in the tenon and I did not think it was salvageable. Finish is lacquer. o last week I decided ti try again. and changed the spiral and added Gilding Waxes. It is small at 7 inches but was a fun piece.
  6. 6 x 2 3/4 pecan bowl. Finished turned on the new lathe. .40
  7. Finished 2nd turning on this one earlier today. 9x4 inches.
  8. Turned a carver's mallet from some osage orange that was sent to me by a friend. OO is known as Bois D'arc in these parts and pronounced BO-DARK in Texan. .40
  9. 7.5 x 3 spalted pecan bowl. Finished with General Finishes Georgian Cherry, Ack's Paste and Odie's

    Seed Dibber

    With spring coming, a seed dibber is a useful, quick little project.
  11. 7x4 pecan bowl 1st up out of the kiln. Finished with Ack's and Odie's. .40
  12. I few weeks ago I asked if anyone might know what kind of wood this was. We kind of decided it was a myrtle/sycamore of some kind. I cut that log into 4 blanks. I've managed to lose one of them on a shelf somewhere in the shop. I rough-turned one of the three remaining blanks this morning. Any further ideas on the species seeing the grain and coloring? Whatever kind of wood it is, it was a pleasure to turn. Very easy to cut. Had a crisp clean spring woods smell to it. .40
  13. My wife needs some bottle stoppers for work.
  14. 7 1/2 x 3 pecan crotch. Has been drying for about 6 months. Areas were hard as a rock for the 2nd turning. Had to slow down and mind my P's and Q's to keep it from tearing out.

    New bowls

    Have a couple of new bowls.
  16. I made a cutting board that came apart. I took one of the smaller pieces and made a plate. Almost went too far. When I blew it off I could feel airr going through to the other side.

    Working on a vase for my wife. I started with a piece of cherry 6” by 6” by 12” long. I think I will need to build a steady rest to hollow it.

    New bowl.

    I had four rough turned bowls drying in bags with chips. They have been there long enough I figured they had to be dry. Two of them were warped too bad to save and ended up in the burn pile. One is not finished yet. This one is done. It is ambrosia Maple.

    Turned a pen today. I bought a piece of quarter sawn sycamore and cut enough off the end to make a pen.
  20. I had a small piece of Bradford Pear given to me. I made this small bowl 5.5 inches by 1.5 inches.
  21. I got on face book the other day and saw that my nephew had mentioned me in a comment. Well, he had replied to a guy wanting a wood turner to make some carvers mallets for him. The guy said he would supply the wood. Since my name had already been mentioned I sent the guy a PM and we hooked up. All I can say is WOW! This guy lives about a mile from me and I have never met him, may have seen him at a festival before but that's it. He is a hardwood carver and very accomplished. I was able to get three mallets out of the wood he provided. Waiting for him to check handle diameter before I finish this one. Osage Orange, very distinctive color. Hard, but even so it cuts pretty nicely. Larry's work. http://www.decatursculpturetour.com/artist/doc - lawrence a.-wiedman, phd/14

    Eucalyptus Vase

    From the album: Hollow Forms

    Eucalyptus has a story. This is the regular side on the other side iot is spalted. Was working on this and I left in a plastic bag and the down side spalted but not the top.
  23. I am getting bored beyond tolerance routering those ceiling tiles. At end of day I decided to put a chunk of firewood on the lathe and turn something. It turned out a mallet. Something about turning that soothes the nerves. Paul
  24. Inspired by last weeks Wisdom for Woodturners post I made a hinged box. I watched Mike Waldt's video and remembered I had harvested some of those hinges from trinkets purchased at the Restore with plans to use them someday. The hinge sets are cheap when purchased this way since the price for one of the trinkets is usually around $0.50 at the Restore. I collected them together and hadn't realized how many I had acquired until they were all in one place. The nick in the lid makes room for the hasp. I filed the bottom of the hasp flat and didn't have to cut out the bottom piece.
  25. Learning to turn can be intimidating, more so (I suspect) when you don't have anyone local to turn to for advice. So I come here and glean what I can. This is my latest endeavor....another not-very-big-deal, but a handle for a parting tool. The shank is installed with a combination of epoxy in the bottom of the hole and a slit cut in the end under the ferrule. The victory in this is that the hole is aligned with the handle. I had managed to work out a method for this with a screwdriver, and this is another attept (that worked). Anyway, the handle is loosely styled like a Henry Taylor chisel I have and this was actually just puttering around. Since I was just puttering, I tried the burned rings that Dan described in another post. It's hard maple, and if it falls apart I still have the OEM handle to put it in. I did give it a couple of coats of wiping varnish. Forgot to mention, one big screwup was that my tenon for the ferrule isn't long enough, it's too short by almost 1/8"! I think I can get my tubing cutter and shorten the ferrule to the tenon length.
