  1. Pear and Cherry Lidded Bowl

    This bowl is made from a small section of Bradford Pear log from middle TN and a piece of Cherry grown in central FL. The cherry lid will likely darken with age more than the pear will, thus producing a contrast with the bowl. The pear shaped finial is made of Walnut but, just to be clear, is...
  2. Finial top lidded bowl - figured maple and sapele

    I had a chunk of figured maple that I knew was going to have awesome chatoyancy, and it was about the right size for a small bowl. I've never done a finial top lidded bowl, so I figured what the hell? I turned the bowl body first, then used a vacuum chuck to hold the lid blank well enough to...
  3. DECORATIVE BOWL with a LID

    My contribution to the Bowling Swap 2022. My first attempt at a segmented bowl, and the largest turned item. It's 10" Dia x 5" high. Layered with Cherry, Walnut and Maple. It was a fun learning exercise making up the segment rings then gluing the rings together. My press for gluing, just 2...
  6. Tri-Peaked Bowl

    I saw this design and decided to give it a try; I glued up some scrap wood and turned it. The finished shape looked good so I stained it and covered it with three coats of polyurethane varnish. I plan to try turning one in purpleheart but have not found the time yet. Notice how the shape...

    This Red Cedar bowl is almost the last of a tree downed by the hurricanes of 2004. The bowl measures 6 inches high, including the finial, by 5 inches wide. It is finished with a clear satin lacquer. By a slow drying process I was able to preserve the pith of the tree. (the original center around...
  8. Spalted Maple Lidded Bowl

    This bowl is made from some maple logs I received from my daughter which were harvested in a suburb of Orlando, FL. The logs were cut up into manageable sizes, wrapped in plastic and allowed to spalt. Now, three years later, I have been making bowls that have amazing spalting patterns. This...

  10. Holly and Mahogany Lidded Bowl

  11. Lidded bowl from Staghorn Sumac

    Turned from a spot on the tree very close to the roots, this bowl has some really interesting character to it.

  13. Woodworking Skill Share
    For the life of me I cant get my Perfomax 22-44 drum sander to be parallel to the conveyer table. ARRRGGGg! I'm beginning to think that its just an alternate reality that we will wonder about ,but never be apart of. Do any of you have any tips? And you thought I was going to start a topic...
  14. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    As you can see I need a lot of advice. I just got my new Delta Fence installed and the tables set up the way I want them but I don't know the best way to place the following items. Most things can be moved but a few I would rather not due to the amount of work involved. Those are the Table Saw...
  15. Jigs & Fixtures
    I have a Kreg K3 Pocket Hole Jig (you know, the one with the handle in the right place), and it gets a lot of use, enough that I'm thinking a pocket hole machine would be nice. However, the $900 price tag on Kreg's basic machine is kind-of holding me back! I've been thinking about building a...
