Do you lay out a pattern on paper before turning? What do you color with? BTW very nice platter.

Absolutely beautiful. If I ever was to become a turner again, this is what I would love to learn to do.

That is really beautiful Dave, I bought a beading chisel a couple of weeks ago but haven’t mustered the nerve to try this.
Absolutely love it.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

I attended the AAW Woodturning symposium in Kansas City last year and saw Harvey Meyer demo the process.
This got me hooked. I started by drawing the pattern on polar graph paper. This was my 4th attempt and I was very happy with the outcome. I used Faber Castel Pitt artist pens you can buy from Hobby Lobby. Harvey Meyer is on YouTube if you wish to review his process.

Looks very good. How big is it? Looks like your piece won a prize at the fair.
