    So it’s all done. I will be doing a little extra work on the finish i kinda rushed it a bit. I did use CA for the finish in this one. That’s not my go to finish but it works if I had done my standard finish it would have taken an extra week or 2 to finish it up. This is a precursor for another...

    Turning of the Week (TOTW) for the week of 11 OCT 2021

    My pick for Turning of the Week for the Week of 11 OCT 2021 is 'Chinese Ball' from Konstantin Gusev. It grabbed my attention when I first saw it, based on the complexity of the design and beauty of the wood. I have to admit that I have a soft spot for multi-axis turnings and Konstantin has...

    Ash Platter

    This is a 17 ½” Ash platter, it sits about 1 ½” tall and just under ½” thick. I dried this piece for a couple of years after roughing and a heavy coat of Anchorseal, thinking that it might help keep the feather from cracking. The foot is dovetailed on the inside so it could be hung in any...

It is then baked at 275°F for 30 min to cure. The resulting...

    TOTW for the week of August 9, 2021

    Sugar Maple Burl Vessel by John Jordan is my choice for this week's featured turning.
