Thread: thin walled bowl

I seen this blank that really had no or very little caricature so decided to turn it as thin as I could. here is the bowl finished at about 3mm thick and in places you can see the light through it. all comments welcome.

Thread: segmented turning demo.

hi Ron

thank you Robby glad you enjoyed it as for charging I don't think I am that good as yet.

hi Derek

thank you for the compliments. yes I am finding it easier to do the demos. it is the start that gets me all the waiting around but as soon as I get going and settle down then I am ok. I have done 3 close segment demos now 2 at our club and one at another club. it is harder at your own club as they all know you and can baric you and get away with it ( to a degree that is).


20/11/2014 21:20:21

last night I did a wood turning demo at our club. it was on closed segment turning. it took about 2 hrs. it took me about 3 months to prepare for it this is only my 3rd demo I have done. this is the finished vase hope every one that was there enjoyed it.

hi Derek

thank you for your comments and the help you did in producing the earlier bowl to give me the idea in the first place.

the grain direction was a no brainer as soon as I laid the meddle in you could see which way showed the meddle to its best.


23/10/2014 21:40:02

thank you Julian

this is going to be set out as a wall plaque and put up on the wall near to where I sit.

I 1982 I was in the royal navy and a Falklands veteran. over the years I have remembered all who fell in my own little way. well a few months ago I found a meddle for doing the Falklands half marathon that I did in 1987. not knowing exactly what to do with this I put it to the side and pondered about it. well Derek Laine had give me an idea not so long ago he did a bowl with a metallic insert so I decided to use the meddle as a centre of this teak bowl so here is the outcome. my little remembrance bowl.  thank you Derek. all comments welcome.
