|Thread: Offset stem goblet|
Thanks for sorting picture for me. I am looking forward to playing more as well with the off centre turning. The chuck came with an idea for turning a spoon!!! maybe try that at some point
|Thank you. I did enjoy using the chuck, it was a wee present for stopping smoking 6 weeks ago.|
I have just taken delivery of the Sorby wobble chuck, this is my first attempt, easy piece of equipment to use, didn`t take long to get used to it. Could someone help me, i have forgotten to turn photo before posting!!

|Thread: Nice Pear|
|Thanks for the help in the right direction|
I love these boxes, i have tried to turn threads, failed on many occasions!! must try again. Well done
|Thread: Willow Platter|
It was air dried, it looked awful to be honest, stained, bit wobbly when put on the lathe, cost about £6 if i remember right, i never thought it would come out the way it did. I found another piece just recently, hopefully it will turn out the same, you just never know do you!!!
|Thread: Tattie masher|
Hi Thank you
The end is slightly domed, and made from sycamore, sorry i posted it the wrong way, new fangled computer, not got used to it yet!!, i entered 8 pieces into the competition.
|Thread: Horse Chestnut Bowl Top view.jpg|
Lovely turning, well done, have not attemted a turning like yours.
Love turning burrs, especially Elm
|Thread: Goblet Twist Stem|
Love the turning, has given me some ideas for a piece i am considering.
Believe it or not there is a maggot hole at the rear of the goblet, won`t get much drink in this one!!!
Answer is as George has said.
There is no finish on this item, it is straight off the lathe with very little sanding, was just trying different shapes, next one will be a little bit better.
|Thread: open vue with wine stoppers in|
|Well done, i like the concept|
|Thread: teak bowl|
Lovely grain pattern on bowl, well done
I have used this PDF document to help me, it goes through the process of marking the wood, i also bought a couple of books.
Plus there is this document
Hope this help
I have tried and failed at the twists a few times, but seeing your work has given me inspiration to try again.
|Thread: Pagoda trinket box|
I just noticed this thread, I do like the idea of the boxes and the use of Square turnings
|Thread: Rectangular Bowl|
There you go Derek
This is one of my Square bowls, turned in same way as rectangular bowl
Then the Diamond bowl, this one was turned from Elm, bit more difficult to turn the diamond bowl, this was first attempt!!.
I enjoy turning pieces like these, you tend to think how you are going to do these pieces and be careful!!!
I cut a rectangular piece from the strair tread, then sanded the sides and ends then turned the bowl. Handsanded the wings. Have also done diamond bowls, which are even sharper when running at 3000rpm!!
American oak, started life as stair tread!!, was given the wood from work!!
