    This walnut bowl is 7 inches in diameter by 3 inches high. It is finished with clear lacquer. The walnut came from some logs I brought back from TN.
  2. Spalted Maple Pedestal Bowl

    This maple bowl was turned back in 2001 on a small craftsman 9 inch swing lathe (1954 model). It clearly shows that you don't have to have a fancy machine, or even a lot of experience, to turn nice bowls. The wood came from the side of the road as the power company was clearing the trees along...

  4. Large Wormy Cherry Bowl

    My neighbor had a cherry tree taken down in his back yard. I asked if I could have some of the wood and after drying it in my garage for three months, I have now turned seven or eight bowls from it. This is the largest, although there will be a larger on coming later. My lathe can handle 16"...
  5. Fruit Bowl

    my Aunt asked me to do a fruit bowl that could hold bananas as well, after showing her some designs she liked this one. i had one problem though, when fitting i marked the six elevated pieces and they fit, then i sand it and forgot about the marks!, when gluing the last hole did not align...
  6. OSB Plywood Fruit Bowl

    I took a 12"x12" piece of OSB plywood (oriented strand board) and turned it into a fruit bowl. I used a technique I had seen before but had never tried. The technique allows me to utilize 98% of the wood with absolute minimum amount of waste. The finished bowl has the appearance of being made of...

  10. Padauk Salad/Fruit Bowl

    I bought a second lathe from a gentleman a couple months ago. He gave me a bunch of other stuff including some chucks, tools, and wood. One of the pieces of wood was this padauk bowl about 10 inches in diameter. He got it at a garage sale for 50 cents because a previous owner had spilled...
  11. It's okay to be crafty ... sometimes

    Just some feedback on my dowel-rod and colored-pencil fruit bowls. I decided to make three of each for sale, and the colored-pencil versions were gone the first day. Go figure? Convinced me that making someone smile can sometimes trump "serious art".

  14. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    This just a casual observation and not intended to be a tool review. I was in HF today and stopped to look at the General Tool boxes. Overall, I was somewhat perplexed and disappointed. The reason I say this is I have the big rolling tool box with an add on cabinet with trays and another add on...
  15. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    These saws have a base that is fully enclosed on each of the four sides. However, it is open on the bottom. As it is sold, there are no provisions in the design to use that space for any storage. It isn't a huge deal one way or another, but I have wondered: Have any owners made any mods to the...
