Thread: Natural edge Burr Elm
17/09/2008 19:47:00


You are right about the hot glue gun, used it only a couple of times and have always been wary of the wood coming of the lathe

Must be a bit braver!!!!

Thank you

The alder was a little bit on the soft side, used superglue to harden specific areas, really enjoyed turning it though.

Used food safe oil to finish, platter still has the same glow about it today.

 Thanks again

Thank you

 It was turned as a normal shallow bowl, then used a scrollsaw to cut the handles, but back on the lathe to tidy up, then handsanded.

Thank you again

Beautiful turning, and finish.

I love turning Burr Elm, never thought of using a glue though to attach to scrap wood

I was told afterwards that due to winning in another catagory, that i would have won in the goblet section, but the rules stated it was not possible to win in more than one catagory.

 The spiralling system was a xmas present, and used frequently.

Thank you,

Just got my hands on another two large pieces of Burr Elm this morning, just got to decide what to do with them, possibly looking at making a couple of natural edge vases.

Hi again, and thank you.

It is Burr Elm again!!, this was turned on Cole Jaws, centralised as best as i could at slow speed, then sanded and oiled.  A can of fresh Air is used to clean if needed!!!

I have turned a few of these and they sell really well, in fact the last one only took less then an hour from start to finish.

Thread: Burr Elm Skelton Clock

Thank you again 

It is Burr Elm, and sits on the wall in the living room.

The clock movement cost £18, available from the internet  and a few other places i think, it comes in two colours brass & silver, it was the first time i had used this time of movement, especially with having to make a jig to hold the piece when the hole was turned all the way through.  The wood on the other hand was given to me by a professional woodturner in my local area.

Hi Ralph

 The goblets are three pieces, turned from Spalted Pear and an unknown wood for the stems, the spirals done with the Sorby Spiralling system.

These were practise pieces, but decided to enter them into a competition with my local woodturning club.

Thank you for your comments.

 I kept all my fingers, and yes it is english elm, i tend to turn lots of Burr elm, local contacts!!  It had coats of oil to keep the colour of the wood

Thank you again

Thank you

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.

Thank you

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

I have tried and failed at the twists a few times, but seeing your work has given me inspiration to try again.

Well done
