This was a little practice in making a piece in the style of Rudy Lopez. Rudy is coming to the Grand River Turners Guild in March for a demo and training and they showed some of his work at the last meeting. I noticed a beaded edge piece turned on two axis’ and tried to make one.
This is a piece of real dry birch log that was on the firewood pile in the barn. I first turned it from the ends…..turned away the bark and cut beads in the side of the log. Then I turned it from the sides and made the bowl and the beads replaced what would usually be the natural edge. The last shot shows the first turning.

It is 6” long and about 3” diameter and finished with Danish Oil.

Cheers, Jim

Cool concept. It took me.a few moments to understand the “2 axis” idea, but I got it now. Very nicely done

It’s like a tongue twister for turning. Definitely cool and unique Jim. I’m going to keep this one on the future list, way future list.

Thanks for the nice comments. This piece took all of 90 minutes to complete. Sanding off the lathe took twice that time!

cheers, Jim

Nice Jim, I hate the sanding part.

-- 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.

Thanks, Bob. I did not dare any sanding on the lathe or I’d have broken my hand in that propeller. I turned it around 1800 to get the best finish so I didn’t have to sand too much, but I still did. It would have come out much better with a harder and maybe a wet/green wood!

Cheers, Jim

What a concept, Jim That’s nuts. That none of the beads blew out is a wonderment. Pic 4: With what did you roll the beads, Dear Jim? With what? Perchance, a skew?

Nice work Jim, very effective with the beads in lieu off. Know what you mean with sanding the propeller on the lathe.

Very nice, Jim! I find it very interesting to read about the turning projects you and others do and all the different tools and methods you use. I may not have a clue what they are but maybe someday!
