Walnut Turned Hollow Form (8/19/2007)

I really don't like this piece much at all. It was a leftover chunk from cutting bowl blanks out of half logs, and I turned it mostly to get more practice with my hollowing rig. The inside turned out ok, but since the piece is sidegrain (as opposed to most hollow forms being end grain oriented) it was a bit of a chore to keep smooth. My biggest dissapointment is the outside form - the top surface should curve more as it comes down from the rim, and the foot is much much too large and clunky. To my eye it begs for a bit of refinement to make the shape work well. So close, yet so far...

4" tall in walnut finished with buffed danish oil:

Honey Locust Turned Hollow Form (6/21/2007)

This is the first finished piece in an upcoming series of turnings I'm working on for the University of Michigan Art Museum. They're in the midst of a multi-million dollar expansion, and to make way for their new wing they had to clear out a bunch of old trees. They've offered the wood to the turning clubs in Michigan so that we can turn pieces to be donated to the museum gift shop for sale. The money will go back into the museum and each of our pieces will include a bio in case the customers are interested in other pieces of our work.

As a two time Penn State alumnus it's difficult to support UofM, but I'm enjoying turning the wood and I'm looking forward to viewing the newly expanded museum.

Here's the Hollow Form. 4" tall in honey locust finished with antique oil:


Maple Turned Hollow Form (6/7/2007)

So I'm all psyched as I bring up the first two pieces off my new Monster hollowing rig, and the wife takes one look at em and says "what are those things and what are you going to do with em?". "They're Art, Dear" says I. Then I get "well I can tell that one is a vase, but what's that other thing?". So I say "It's a Hollow Form, Dear - it's Art!" and then stomp off to add them to the other piles of round things that are really starting to clog the living room and library. Sheesh!

Here's the Hollow Form. 4-1/2" tall in maple finished with lightly buffed antique oil:

Maple Turned Bowl (10/20/2007)

It's amazing to me how chunks of wood from the same tree can have completely different appearances. This maple bowl is from the same tree that produced all the other maple bowls and boxes I've turned this year, yet this section of the tree is much darker and more mottled in color than most of the rest. The wonders of Mother Nature never cease to surpise and delight.

Roughly 13" diameter, finished with buffed Antique Oil


Maple Turned Bowl (10/20/2007)

I like the shape of this bowl. The subtle step about 2/3 of the way up the outside is a nice subtle detail, the overall outside curve is open and pleasing, and it works well without a foot. The undercut rim makes it easy to pick up and the balance is very pleasing.

Roughly 13" diameter, finished with buffed Antique Oil.

Walnut Bowl (6/2007)

I finished this bowl a month or two ago, and I'm just now getting around to taking and posting pictures for the web site.

If I were to pick one favorite bowl out of all my pieces, this bowl would be the one. I like the form (a nice open ogee shape), I like the foot (in the shape of a bead), and I love the rim treatment (a beat with a birdsbeak below, a cove above, and a nice undercut to the rim). The figure to the wood doesn't hurt much either, but imho the form makes this piece.

This is about 13" diameter, and the finish is buffed Antique Oil.

Maple, Cherry, Birch, and Walnut Turned Platter (8/2007)

This piece was a lot of fun. I had some 8/4 maple scraps left over from previous projects, and in an effort to clean out my wood rack a bit I glued some up with a few contrasting woods. I trimmed it up a bit on the bandsaw, glued it to a wooden faceplate, and proceeded to (surprisingly enough) turn a fairly decent platter. Since the wood stripes dominate the piece I didn't want to clutter it up with a bunch of fussy beads, coves, or grooves (although I couldn't resist a few on the bottom). I included an undercut rim on the bowl section and a subtle cove on the rim. I'm very happy with the result - this might end up as a wall hanging.

Woods are maple, cherry, birch, and walnut. Diameter is about 17". Finish is buffed antique oil (which was difficult to photograph due to it's high gloss).

Maple and Cherry Turned Platter (8/2007)

Another platter from glued-up 8/4 leftovers from other projects. This is maple with a cherry center strip. The form turned out a bit more like an offering plate than a traditional platter with a wide rim, but I like it. I thought I'd try the Sorby Texturing tool on the rim of this piece, and while it's ok, it's evident that it was my first attempt. After a bit more practice with the other wheels on scrap I'm sure my next uses of the tool will be a bit more interesting. I'm still happy with this piece though.

Woods are maple and cherry. Diameter is about 14". Finish is buffed antique oil.

하하루종일 컴터 앞에 앉아 있으려니 스팀이 올라오네요))))

일본인 마나배씨 홈에서 본 연마지그 입니다.

Bowl gouge의 연마가 목선번칼 중에서 가장 갈기가 어려울것 같은데

이런 형식의 지그만 있다면 그게 그다지 어려운 일만도 아니더군요

Gouge 날 각도에 따라 지그 중심축 각도가 변하는 것은 좀더 시도 해 봐야 겠지만

얼추 270도 정도의 날 연마는 연속에서 할수 있더군요

일전에 만든 연마지그 중간에 작은 구멍안에 지그 중심축을 꼿고 중심을 잡지요

왼쪽 갈고

오른쪽 갈고

It's done !
