Thread: Fancy bowl
28/11/2019 07:48:56

Hi good morning

It was our club's annual competition last night I entered this bowl and won

You get to keep the trophy for a year which is named after a much respected member who passed away

Two years ago So it is a real honour to have won it

There was about 25 entries all were really good bust I forgot my camera i.e. phone so will have to hope somebody sends me some photos

Saddam now happy sam

Hi all

This is a trial piece that has turned out pretty much ok

It is made from several differant hard woods the top is 16 wedge shaped pieces glued together and the bottom from the same woods the photo shows the format on the bottom

When turning the top it split at one joint so I managed to repair it with sliver of wood

Apart from that it was ok

I'm now a hoping a to make a larger one with a walnut border added say a foot diameter thicker wood and make it bowl

Comments gratefully accepted

P s to all readers come on let's see some of your work on the site good or bad it all ways makes a topical discussion

Thankyou Sadsam

Thread: Shabby chic vase
16/10/2018 16:21:38

This was made from scrap pieces as a chopping board included strips together then cut them into strips across turned them end grain up didn't like so glued the strips together into a square put it on the lathe turned it round then cut it into more pieces twisted them round a bit glued them back hollowing as it grew it did fail twice on the clue so had to more or less start again but got there in the end

Hi Derek live never thought of it I've made several for presents

They do look a nice present and I enjoyed making them I got 13 out of the wood which was literally scrap

So will have to make another can't leave it at an unlucky number

Thankyou for your comments

Hi Derek cheers for that

The flower vase took a while to make my mind up how I was to make it

The next one I am going to try a different method i.e. steaming the blank and pressing it

The disadvantage with that is all the work is wasted if it fails so I suppose I will have to have a practise run

But it will be a while I've got other things to do first

12/04/2018 20:14:59

I have enjoyed making these two projects The flower bowl wasn't of a pain and by no way turn out perfect so I will be making another and hopefully improve

Mind you the forewoman loves it

The feature ring vase took a while to do but was enjoyable
