  1. Open form in Termite Spalted Pine

    Since I started turning I've wanted to do larger pieces. The wife was kind enough to let me get a Powermatic 3520B with two bed extensions (118" total bed length). This is the first turning. The wood was one of two trunk sections from a pine tree a neighbor was throwing away. Both pieces had...
  2. Shallow Bowl in Termite Spalted Pine

    This is my second large turning, approximately 18 inches by 4 inches. This was from the second of two trunk sections of a pine tree. The damage from the termites living in the wood is more evident, as is the spalting. I have identified the 4 types of spalting in this single piece of wood...
  3. "Car Tires on a Gravel Road" part 2

    I carved the guy in the rocking chair back in April and thought i was finished. I had originally planned to have more characters, but thought it was more work than I wanted, especially since I wanted to do the glider. But I like a challenge, so I did the glider and then the lady, and then I...
  4. Balusters.....(now I KNOW I'm not a production turner)

    A former boss asked me to fix/replace a baluster/bannister/spindle from his house. I guess it was a year ago, maybe longer. I finally got around to making him a couple. The first one was a practice piece. It had a knot hole that was half the thickness of the spindle. I turned it with the piece...
  5. Walking Stick handles from Curly Morare, Curly Movingui (dunnage)

    Remote controller modification Powermatic 3520b Motor Controls Rewire I got my Powermatic a couple years ago. As I was researching its features I came across an article about removing the entire motor controller panel and putting it into a switchbox. I like that Idea much better than the...
  8. Woodturning
    The boss, er wife, let me get a new lathe a couple years ago, a Powermatic 3520b. After a Craftsman tube-type lathe, it was a tremendous step up, big, heavy, quiet, smooth, variable speed, reversible. I am curious how many turners running reversible lathes work from the 'back' side of the lathe...
