  1. Claro Walnut Vases

    I have been wanting to try my hand at some serious hollowing, so I broke down-broke open my piggy bank, that is-and bought one of those Jamieson tools. I made a series of six vases, in paris of three different species. These are the two made of Claro Walnut. This Claro Walnut was from a local...
  2. 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...
  3. Spalted Birch Vases

    These are the third and fourth vases in my series of six that I made to get the hang of hollowing with my new tool. The wood used for these two vases came from a neighbor's tree that was cut down, perhaps because it was sick (which would explain the spalting.) (This is the same stock of wood...
  4. Callery Pear vases

    These are the first and fifth vases in my series of six that I made to get the hang of hollowing with my new tool. The wood used for these two vases came from a some beautiful stock of Callery Pear that I have from locally felled trees. Callery Pear is quite beautiful (in my not so humble...
  5. Desk Tidy/ Organizer

    Hey folks! I decided I would combine a bit of turning with some woodwork to make this pretty simple desk tidy/ organizer, let me know what you think! Be sure to watch the video bellow to see how it was made and for more details and images of construction of this desk tidy take a look at the...
  6. Cherry Hollow Form/Vase

    First try at doing a hollow form. Trying to get better with hand hollowing.
  7. Simple Walnut Hollow Form

    A simple hollow walnut form. 4" tall x 7" across. Turned and hollowed completely with Easy Wood Tools chisels. Bottom embellishment done with shop made spiralling tool. Finished with beeswax and mineral oil.
  8. Lidded Box (hook tool practice)

    This little box is about 3 inches tall, 2 inches in diameter … cherry with teak lid. It had been awhile since I used my hook tool, so I watched an online demo by Tod Raines and decided to brush up a little on my end-grain hollowing.
  9. White Ash Vase

    This White Ash vase was a bit of a challenge … the blank was irregular in shape, severely out of balance, and had rotted in the center leaving some nasty voids. I glued large waste blocks to both ends, which gave me some latitude in finding an axis to turn on. Some of the interior voids were...
  10. Hollowing Woodturning Jig

    Made this jig and new tool rest this weekend after seeing many designs at the AAW Conference in Raleigh last weekend. Made with 3/4" square aluminum bars and a 2" round piece to cut the groove in the tailstock yoke. The 2" pivot point has a draw bar to keep the yoke from turning in the quill...
  11. Eucalyptus Hollow Forms

    These two hollow forms are the result of my exploring the use of grain orientation. Both forms come from the same tree. In fact they come from the same piece of wood, adjacent to each other. Apart from having a difference in profile, they differ only in the orientation of the grain whilst...
  12. Finished Orangutan sliding lid Box

    I have been doing a series of blogs on this project but today I have to wrap the project in its Christmas paper and deliver it to my daughter before she leaves on her overseas trip that will take her to the Orangutan rescue centre in Borneo. So I did the final finishing with orange skin oil...
  13. Spalted Vase

    This little vase (6" tall) is the first piece I turned with my new hollowing system and a visual hollowing rig that I put together. I'm not sure what species the vase is (it is FOG wood … found on ground). The lid is Brazilian Cherry. I got a 'Simple Hollowing System' from Harrison Specialties...
  14. Aspen Fresh Flower Vase

    What to turn, what to turn? Well, I do a lot of mugs, but wanted to branch out a little bit. My hollowing skills leave a little to be desired, so I thought I'd work on them. I didn't want to get real crazy and turn a vase with a really small mouth. I also wanted to create something my wife...
  15. Andy Art Box Attempt #1 "Ripples"

    I say attempt #1, because I really enjoyed this project and I'm working on a few more. A big thank you to Andy for his amazing instructional blog. Body is walnut, "medallion" is quilted maple, and the handle is bloodwood. Splines are maple and bloodwood. I pretty much followed Andy's...
  16. Cylinder vase (or tall bowl) from mineral stained poplar

    A friend had a fairly large poplar tree removed from his yard and let me have all of the wood that I wanted from the tree. A few of the branches had some very dark purple mineral staining. This vase or bowl is from that wood. I used my new Sorby hollowing tool and it made quick work of the...
  17. Harley Plaque

    A plaque I made for charity. I had a good size piece of Cherry left from a project 23" x 14" x1", and decided to send it through my CNC for a fund raiser. The carving turned out great, I added a few coats of polly after this picture was taken.
  18. Tall hollowform

    A hollowed vessel, this tall (14"x4") is a new realm for me, along with carving. I have always enjoyed spirals, so I put them all together in one vessel. Hope you enjoy
  19. Home made hollowing tool

    This is a follow up to this project which you can see here: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/14258 I chose 2×2 billet of hard maple to make the handle for the hollowing tool that I made in the above project. A 3/4" brass threaded plumbing endcap was used to make the ferrule. Brass turns well...
  20. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Update May 01, 2011- I wrote a detailed review on what it took just to order a combo package, and the hoops I had to go though to physically get my grubby hands on a fully operating system for my Oneway 2436. It's about 8 posts down and long. But it's what you need to know if you want one...
