  1. Hollow Vessel Turning

    This is my first attempt at hollow vessel turning. It started as a 10" long 7" diameter Redwood Burl veneer core log piece and this is how it ended up. I guess I could have made the neck opening a little smaller; however, I was more interested in learning technique at the time. I sanded up to...
  2. Offset Checkered Vessel

    First time to try this type of design. Pretty easy to make. I was curious how the end grain was going to react on this piece. It did fine; keep the tools very sharp! Made of Aspen and Hedge. Finished with super glue and buffed. Thanks for looking.

  16. Lidded Cup

    After being away from my lathe for 2 1/2 years, this piece was most frustrating and took twice as long to complete as it should have.
