  3. Had looked for a piece of live oak large enough to do a 15 inch plus platter quarter sawn for a long time . Well What I finally found a 19 inch tree and cut a blank next to the pith. Not quarter sawn like Mike Mahoney uses but close as it gets. By the way Mike cuts some huge timbers , maybe 4 foot diameter. Tree had been down maybe 60 days when I got to it. Then I cut the blank and did a first turn leaving the blank at 2 inch thick. I sealed all edges and toward the center with paraffin . After two weeks it developed some cracks so decided to finish turn. I started with the back and had some bad spots appear at what looked like a branch and discovered after reversing that there was a bit of pith that would be left if I finished in that orientation so I turned the front to almost complete then reversed again. That got most of the branch out so sanded back and turned again . For the final sanding and then some embellishment with a bead and burned line. Now decided that it needed some back embellishment. I did a crosshatch design with a Sorby mini spiral master, a middle with Decorating Elf, then the Wagner tool. Remember this blank is still wet so I bagged it to dry. It is now drying and not as yet warped as live oak likes to do and what hapens but the left over from the branch starts to curl . I filled that with black CA and now just wait. Started as 19 inch and finish is 17.
  4. Tried something new today; end grain thin bowl. Used live oak and turned to just over 1/8 inch live edge. Easy turn bud did start to crack in center when sanded. Fixed that with CA. Put in a bag to slow drying and hope for the best.

  6. Time to watch oil dry....
  7. AndrewB

    Well Now

    I’m fairly pleased with this turn out. I did not use the dovetail jaws on this one just the face plate. I guess you could say it’s okay for a beginner candle stick holder we shall see. I’ve still got to put a coat of wax on it I just finished with the boiled linseed oil how ever I think the wax will just add more too it. I used nothing but carbide tipped tools. I was going for the more rugged beat up kind of look and got it. So once I get this thing cut off from the base I guess I could call it a successful turn.
  8. I have spalted Maple left from an old project and decided to turn an ornament out of it. It was VERY unstable in some places and my plans changed as I turned. I ended up with the shape you see and I used the ultraviolet cured clear finish. I used it Mainly because the wood was so poreus and extremely dry. As I took it out to the sunlight to harden, I got a bonus. It hardened quickly and I didn't notice till later that the finish had started to drip. If you look at the very bottom you will see what looks like a fine, clear point. It looks as tho I planned it, If I planned it, the result would not look anywhere near that good. This finish isn't my favorite, but it did the job with this spalted piece.
  9. So for the first time I'm at a stand still on wood turning for the moment. The plug on my bench top lathe decided to break, so that wont get fixed until I can get my electrician over here to wire me a new cord. Well that happened to be the perfect excuse to order a new lathe haha. So I picked one up I did go with the harbor freight one since I'm just the hobby turner and newbie. How ever I'm hoping that the faceplate from my Wen will fit the harbor freight lathe. Any how with that being said I wound up working on the project and where I've gotten so far was a small goblet rather than a candle stick. What I did notice on the Wen was it didn't really allow for a lot of room to work with getting in to carve out in the interior of the goblet. Not turning since high school woodshop it took a bit of playing around with to get back into the feel of things. So far so good. I'm at a point now where I could use any suggestions from you guys that are pro turners on this one. I did pick up a few tips and tricks from youtube about checking the work to see if it was leveled when turning running the chisel a top the piece to check for flat spots. Worked quiet well. Here are the pictures any suggestions on this? On where I should take it. Please keep in mind I'm trying to keep this one quite simple. Thanks ahead of time.

    Live Oak football bowl

    From the album: Bowls and Platters

    This live oak was turned to completion green. When it dried it shrank into this football or boat shape. The outside of the bowl had a kind of weaved pattern due to the shrinkage.

    River Birch spalted

    Had a log of river birch in the yard and was in no hurry till one of the club members showed me some spalted. The log was almost too far gone and had a lot of sanding.

    Knotty vase

    Was going to wait til I had better pic from the good camera but decided these iPhone ones will work. The wood came from a lot next door , house site. I checked the labeled trees and two looked interesting. One a Chestnut Oak or American Chestnut and the other some type post oak. This wood came from the Chestnut oak. This piece had three knots. I turned it to completion and it cracked a little at rim and vase . Black CA stopped that. For finish I applied Royal Blue Chestnut Stains. Sanded that back (you will have to discard this sandpaper) and applied yellow. Final finish 4 costs Minwax brush on lacquer applied via airbrush. Then buff with Beall buff. Then applied Renaissance Wax. Note these pics are the three different knots.
  22. Just got a email from Woodcraft with a article on making a jam chuck. This is the most unique work holding method I have seen and I usually just improvise with a piece of inner tube. UNIVERSAL JAM CHUCK
  23. Thought I had posted this but looks like that was on FB. These bowls are called friendship bowls. My wife likes to give my stuff away sometime so I asked her to ask me fiest and started making these after Dixie Biggs did a demo at our club showing these. Made these from scrapes from turning offering plates. We I wanted to put a collar on and did not think about the bowl warping as it dried. Saved by an idea I remounted the bowls as most were made with a mortise or in expansion mode. By bringing up the tailstock with a cone the bowl stayed in place well for rounding out an area at the top for the collar. Started out with stain and lacquer. Then for another idea for embellishment . Made a spiral burner and branded the bowl. After this I added Ruby Rub n Glow but have to make a pic of that for another post. Placing a collar on with a small hole allows hollowing and no need to smooth inside.
  24. I've acquired these lathe tools for future bowl-turning projects. I know that they are made in Sweden? Opinion????
