  1. Projects South American Ziricote Bowl

    This is a 6x2” South American Ziricote bowl. Ziricote wood is extremely oily and it took a month to finish. This wood is extremely difficult to find and pricey. When I was shopping for this wood, The only wood sold was in lumber size or knife scales. A bowl blank found on EBay was 5x2” and they...
  2. American Elm Natural Edge Bowl

    This was a fun to turn natural edge bowl with a mystery wood that I later determined to be American Elm. The wood was found in a pile of cut wood on the side of a residential street, with no leaves to look at to help with species identification. I turned this bowl within a week of its being cut...
  3. Knitting Crochet Cedar Bowl and Tools

    My wife loves to knit, so for Christmas I made her a cedar bowl and some tools. Large bamboo needle, small African black wood needle (yes the eye is a little rough) and a small padauk, steel, and copper hook I modelled after the turning tools I make. I plan on adding to, and replacing all her...
  4. Bowl Nebula No. 3

    Hi all. It's been a while since I posted anything, but this new painting technique is too much fun to not share. The wood is unremarkable Basswood, so it is perfect for this process. After turning the bowl, and adding some groves, I masked off the area that I wanted to paint. I than sprayed...
  5. Cedar bowl with carving

    Turned cedar bowl with hand carving on the rim.
  6. Maple Bowl

    My first time turning a (maple) bowl. Without a plan, I attempted to let the blank "tell" me what it wanted to be. It wanted to be an upside down hat.
  7. spotted gemsbok graile

    This is a walnut bowl on top of walnut bark which sits on a African gemsbok horn. I used milk paint to acheive my spotted color.
  8. First turned bowl

    I got a lathe a while back, and a new chuck for it last week. I also had an 8/4×8 x 8 chunk of ash that had a knot on one end so I didn't want to use it for anything else. In between cutting and gluing up bookcases, I played with the lathe a bit and came up with this bowl. It's rough, and there...
  9. Second turned bowl

    I turned another bowl today. Went a little more smoothly, but it was a smaller blank to begin with. Piece of 7/4 birch, 5½ inches wide. I mostly was concentrating on making the bowl thinner, especially the bottom. I'd say it's between ¼ and ⅜ thick on the bottom and maybe down to 3/16 at the...
  10. Third turned bowl

    This is the third bowl I turned, and the second made of birch. I managed to get the sides a little thinner, and the bottom thinner as well. I almost avoided tear-out on the end-grain sides of the bowl, only using the bowl gouge, but there was a little, so I sanded to clean things up. Turned...
  11. Small turned birch bowl (#4)

    This bowl is about 3 inches in diameter, and about 2 high. It was a small piece of birch I cut off the end of the bigger board I've been making bowls from, so the next bowls will probably be from some other wood scraps from the shop. This went pretty smoothly, with only a little tear-out. I got...
  12. Ringed Bowl - Red Apple and Tasmanian Myrtle

    This is inspired by the bowl Andy Coates had published in "Woodturning" issue 326. Thanks for the inspiration Andy. Mine is a bit different though, because I hate to copy other peoples work. The bowl is made from "McIntosh Apple" and the rings are Tasmanian Myrtle burl, I chose the burl wood...
  13. SMALL BOWL

    Small ash bowl, 9.3×4 cm, turned on lathe, finish wood oil. Made of two glued boards 10×10x2.8cm. It is just test piece for potentialy larger order.
  14. Rocky Mountain Juniper Lidded Bowl (#32)

    Just after Thanksgiving, LumberJock Sycamoray dropped off some Rocky Mountain Juniper for me to play with. Thanks, Buddy! This is the first bowl I turned from it. It's a bit brittle and I had a few issues with the difference in density between the heartwood and the sapwood, but it was a fun...
  15. Turned and carved claro walnut bowl (#11)

    This started as a 5×5x3 blank of claro walnut from Cook Woods. I turned a bowl with inward sloping side, but was afraid to really get inside there and undercut the sides, so I stared at it for a week or two while it dried. I finish turned it, taking off the bare minimum of material, and then got...
  16. Lucky number 13 bowl

    A 5×5x3 blank of some wood I had never heard of on Cook Woods website. It was on sale, so I figured "what the heck!" There was a soft spot in the wood, so when I started turning it, I lost about a third of the height. And the holes I put in mounting it on the face plate were too close to the...
  17. Bowling League 2022

    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...
  18. Maple and Walnut Open / Segmented Bowl

    A total of 58 pieces. Being my first open segmented piece my nerves are still on edge. I am sure it did not help that my son kept coming into the garage, and admiring the piece, taking snap shots of it with his phone, only to say, "I want to take a few pics before it blows up on you…..You are...
  19. Spalted basswood bowl

    This is one of the largest bowls I have made. It's 7 inches wide and 3 1/2 inches high. I even finished the bottom off this time. The color of the bowl is acutally like the top view picture. I used the french polish and it's babybutt smmmooth! I did the design just playing around with the wood...
  20. Burl Bowl

    Been out here for sometime, and have never posted anything. It has been an inspiration to see such great work. Just a simple wood turned bowl. Isn't the most practical, but really has a nice look to it. The wood says it all. Tried to leave as much of the bark, as well as the chain saw...
