« Part 1: Wooden vases : the making of part II Part 2 of Wooden vases : The making of series no next part


Here is the part III

1— I need my chisel and a mallet to separate all the pieces of wood

2—Be careful !!!

3—Here is the result—Thanks to the newspaper !!

4—Now I take all pieces to rotate them like the picture

5—I use CA to glu all the pieces

6—I put it on the lathe. I use a piece of an old cloth to protect the wood All must be perfectly centred

7—I begin the turning on the left very lightly

8—Next step : the sanding 120/240/320/400

9 —You must turn very very very lightly

Ohhh I can see my lathe through the wood

10—A lot of dust

11—The base is turned

12—Here is the final result

Enjoy . I hope you will have all happiness to read this blog than me to make it

I hope this blog will help you and now I’m waiting for your projects …..

I’ve seen inside out turnings done before but not that way. Especially the tail stock set up on the last step. Wow! Good job. I may have to give that a try.
