  4. Chisel Handles

  7. My First Square Plate - Maple and African Mahogany

    I bought a lathe off of Craigslist a couple months ago and now I understand why people say woodturning is so addictive. There are so many new projects I want to try. I started out simple and made some Harry Potter wands as gifts, a small bowl, and some pens. At the same time, I still enjoy...
  8. Hickory Bowl With Pyrography

    Here's a hickory bowl I recently finished. It is 13×5 and finished with walnut oil. This is my first time doing pyrography on a turning. I used a propane torch to scorch the smoother sections and a basket weave nib to burn the pattern into the piece. If you want to see the process, you can...

  12. Spalted Maple

    Finally had some time at the lathe in the shop…this one is spalted maple, 8" wide and about 3" tall. Finsih so far is just one coat of danish oil, but more finish sanding and some more oil are in its future. The wood was punky and I almost gave up on it. Comments and critiques please….

  14. Dizzy Bowl - My Version

    Isn't it amazing how you can leave your computer in the house with a plan firmly set in your mind, walk to the shed and begin construction, and finish up with something which vaguely resembles what you planned to do. BUT, I love it and I hope you do too. So, it's not a mistake, just a new...

    This was my project for our president's challenge for our woodturning club this month. The challenge was to turn a wall display. I turned a cherry blank into a plate and decided to embellish with some woodburning. I have done very little woodburning so far but looking to expand upon it. I...
  18. From Firewood To Natural Edge Bowls

    I was getting ready for winter and splitting some wood that I have just got form the bush.
