  8. Another spiral tool handle

    Becoming a woodturner has been referred to as falling into the vortex. Now I get it. I thought it was the money required. I like turning tool handles, as well as other things that get a lot of use. Rough turn a cylinder. I used vernier calipers to get the inside dimension of a brass tubing...
  9. Spiral/Wood Nautilus shell

    Nautilus shells are one Nature's more perfect examples of the logarithmic spiral. This is my first attempt and proof of concept in plain 'ole (CHEAP!) pine. Turned out pretty nice. This little guy only has about a 3 inch diameter, but as a proof of concept, I'm pretty pleased with it. I'm...
  10. Oak Bed With A "TWIST"

    I made this oak bed frame to complete my bedroom set. The original design was from wood magazine Issue 187 November 2008: But I didn't really like the pencil-posts or canopy top, then I found a video from St Pierre Woodworking on how to make the spiral legs. To make the legs round, I made...

  13. 2022 Bowling League Swap - Twisted Shakers

    Somebody said that we needed to try something new with this swap and really push ourselves. I may have taken it too far. I got the inspiration from a few youtube videos and a website (www.marchland.org/woodturning/list.htm) that explained how to get a twisted tapered turning. Given the amount...

  15. Golf Ball in Post

    Ok, I admit that I like to make unique items, so here's another one. The wood is from a section of a cedar post, and that is a real golf ball (not a sponge fake). I have tried to show all sides of the "cube" as close up as my camera will permit for the photos. Enjoy. p.s. - I see that there...
  16. Table for a friend.

    A friend of mine found a couple tables she liked on-line, and asked if I could re-create something similar. The condition was that I had to make it for less than the advertised price, and to her color/size specifications. The main design of the table was that of a simple top with wrought iron...
  17. Spiral Shelf

    I made this as the idea had been floating around in my head for more than a year and it was lonely in there. It is made from recycled Narra and is 300×300 x 1400 mm in size. The top and bottom is dovetailed. It gives an interesting look when view from different angles. It can be used for...
  18. First Walnut End Grain Cutting Board

    I've never tried an end grain cutting before. I found a board at the shop and went for it. The juice ring and handle made this one for me more than just pieces of wood glued together. Decided to give to my Mom who was thrilled with the surprise. She is afraid to use it!

  20. expanding/collapsable bowl

    I saw something like this that came from india and decided i had to try it. The bowl is 1 piece of wood mounted onto the bottom plate. It is a long spiral cut on a 2 degree angle so that as the bolw goes up it locks into itself. As you lift the handle, it acts as a lever to expand the bowl.
