  1. More vases...

    Here are some more turnings coming off of the lathe. I made a walnut vase (similar to a previous project) from an old walnut post taken from a Missouri barn. And included a few worm holes, too! The lighter colored vases are made from a good ol' North Carolina gumball tree that a relative had...
  2. Norfolk Island Pine Vases

    Made these from a 6inch branch that I collected from the tip. Been buried in the garden for 6 months and then left out to dry for 18 - 24 months. The idea was to promote spalting, but all I got was some nice smoky patches. They are both sanded to 400 and sealed, then sprayed with "Cabothane...
  3. A few more turnings

    Ok last ones for now Pics 1 & 2 Wood: Sycamore and Cocobolo, with the piece on the right I took some gold dust that you use in coloring pen blanks and applied it to the voids in the knot I think it adds a little something extra I love using knots as a focal point anyways so this just dressed...
  4. Vases & more votive candle holders

    Here are the vases I made for a friends wedding. 24 total. The wood is poplar and was cut using a band saw. The design is not original and I can't find who I borrowed it from. Also more photos of the votive candle holders that were on the bride/groom table and cake table. It was my first...
  5. Interior vases from different types of wood.

    Hello friends. Summer, a lot of work on different objects, but I try to set aside a little time for my favorite work in wood turning. Here I made several decorative vases from different types of wood. There is a nut, a plum, an apricot, an apple tree, who is interested in the manufacturing...

    Red Oak and Purple Heart Vase 9" D x 7 3/4" H 362 pieces, Wipe on Poly This vase turned out to be my most precise segmentation work thus far! This has 16 segments per row and 16 inserts. I had sheets of Purple Heart veneer and just put a full sheet on each layer instead of cutting 16 extra...
  8. Contemporary Shelving

    This project was quite an undertaking. I had no idea what I was getting in to when I started it, but it turned out great and I'm glad I got to do it. It taught me a lot about a number of techniques. As you'll see from the pictures, these shelves were made to hold up a pair of 90 lb. vases. The...
  9. 2 More Segmented Vases - Tasmanian Oak.

    These two were completed today, however the plain one has been hanging around for a while. All that was needed to complete the job was a final coat of "Krylon" clear varnish. Damp weather was the holdup. I had planned to dye the plain one as well, but SWMBO loved it so much in the "Raw" that I...

  12. Vase's (from colored pencils)

    I've seen other people using colored pencils, and I had to try it. After some trial and error, they turned out fairly well. I will have to say, this was an expensive project,but I think well worth the time and money, I'll know better after Christmas.

  14. A collage of miniature vases

    I set this conglomeration of images quite awhile ago for L J's, & I guess I forgot about it. I discovered the files today. Posting them this way is much easier than individual projects, & won't overload L J's with projects. LOL There is a variety of wood here. They run in sizes between 3, & 4...
  15. Woodworking Skill Share
    I have a lot of burls in cherry trees on my property and was wondering if someone could tell me how to best preserve the burl when it is cut. The burls vary in size from one foot to three feet in diameter. How do you keep it from cracking and checking, drying process, preservation, chemicals...

    A retired friend is no longer making projects. For years he made very detailed toys - trucks, bulldovers, cranes, etc. He also has several vases. He would like to downsize and sell his projects. He is in the NW Chicago suburbs. Does anyone have a good idea or two for how he might sell his...

    Photos - "Out of the wood" Exhibition - South Africa I had the opportunity to take a few photos last week so here is a selection. Some of the shots are not so good, so please forgive! Since I am posting my own pieces as projects, I am only showing work from other exhibitors. This should give a...
  18. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I just got an email from Rockler today that talked about SketchList 3D. I had never heard of this program before and I wonder if any of you have heard of it or used it. I am using SketchUp now for all my designs and it seems to work fine. Also, SketchList is $200 while SketchUp is free. Rockler...

    An Article Sent to Me The U. S. Geological Service issued a report in April ('08) that only scientists and oil men knew was coming, but man was it big. It was a revised report (hadn't been updated since '95) on how much oil was in this area of the western 2/3 of North Dakota ; western South...
