and I turn it on every time I sand my bowls but when I let the pile get up to 20 or so, ther’e a lot of dust in the

air.

No matter, it’s all part of the process

and they even look good before the finish is started

Actually, I like to make a day of it but in this case I had 14 bowls to sand in prepping for the finish stage and got them all ready in 2 1/2 hours, about 10 or so minutes each

Wow Dick, that is a lot of bowls/lamp shades and a lot of dust !!!
They look great as usual, how long does each one normally take to make?

Hi Mark, yes it is a lot of bowls. No lamp shades in this batch but I do have a couple glued up. I always make 18 plus when I make them because it just seems to work out right.
It’s really difficult to say how long it take for ONE bowl because of the way I make them. Too many steps to keep track of things and besides, while something is drying I might work on a wine rack or tissue box or card holders.
If somebody pinned me down, I would have to say 4 to 6 hours per bowl


Thank goodness for your dust mask…..

Oh man, It would be impossible without the mask

Every once in a while I go outside with the air hose and de-dust myself. and If I want to go in the house I had better have already de-dusted

Yes Anthony, it took me 76 years to bulk up and collect dust the way I do. lol
Vey few people have seen my shop and fewer have been in it. My shop is a wood workers nightmare with hoses and electric lines criss crossing the floor, cut offs stacked in several places as well as lumber stock piled and leaning thru-out the shop but I get stuff done.

Mercy!!,

I’m originally from out in West Texas where the “dust bowel” really exist, and dust storms are numerous, and brother you look just like you were caught in one…..!! I think that’s one reason I don’t turn on the lathe….Too nasty for my taste….But the bowels look beautiful, and when the finish is put on, will look even better…..!! Sand away…!!

Instead of a dirty old man you are a dusty old man…. Since you do allot of bowls take a look again at a cust collector that I made and collects all the dust, I think a shop vacuum would be adequate.

Thanks Rick – but I don’t do any turning its all sanding. I bought that Nova mini lathe with every intention of turning but whimped out when I realized I didn’t have a clue what I was doing. All of my bowls are ringmaster made and nova sanded

Hi Dick,
Contrary to popular opinion, that is not sawdust all over you, it’s Man Glitter. Wear it proudly.
Seriously, do you have a room air filter?, or is that what you’re saying is your dust collector?, not necessarily a dust hood behind the lathe.

Yes, I do have a room air filter over the table saw and a dc hood behind the lathe but as the pics show, neither one works very well.
Brian sent a link to his lathe collection, think I’ll try it. It takes an hour to clean up after a sanding session and we both know half or more of the dust ( glitter ) is all over the shop and not in the collectors. In the summer I open the window, turn on the fan mounted in the window and that takes care of a lot of it but the biggest help is when I don the mask, open the window, grab the air hose and blow out the shop
