Sono stata assente per un bel po', ma adesso è ora di tornare e voglio farlo con una bella dose di colore! Che ne dite di questa ciotola in legno di acero fatta al tornio?
As I reflected back on my day and thought about what I have to be #grateful for I was taking photos for a contest, which has a kitchen theme. My Dad, @chiselmetimbersbydaveyjones was who inspired me for my shots this evening (he made that cutting board). My Dad retired and went back to school after 25 years working for corporate America to follow his dreams. He moved back home to Youngstown and uses his woodworking to make a difference in his community. I am so grateful to have a father I can look up to, someone who shows me how important it is to follow my dreams and truly believes in me. I may be thousands of miles away, but my Dad is always by my side. I am one lucky daughter! #egoeswest
I took a break from guitar building to rough mill some spalted maple a friend gave me. Some neck blanks and some bowl blanks. I made a small cup out of an off-cut. Waste not want not. #woodworking#woodturning
My favorite tool for cutting a recessed area into a box, or for squaring up a mortise. I wish I could recall name of the woodturner, I saw on You Tube, who demonstrated how to grind the notch into a scraper. I use this one often and wanted to share...The edge is ground in at an angle so that the cut will be parallel to the bed when the tool must approach from an angle to clear the live center. 🤔#customize#modify#adaptation#woodturning#woodturner#lathetools
I know that after cutting on #purpleheartwood the color looks a little drab and it takes some time for the newly exposed layer to get rich in color again. Does anyone know - a. Is there a way to speed up the process? Or b. Will the color continue to darken underneath a finish if one were to get over eager and put finish on too soon?
Need input!‼️ This is not my photo or product, but how would you join this? I'm wanting to make something like this, but I'm not sure how to attach a top to the stump. Obviously don't want to screw the top and plug it. I want it to not look like it's joined, but it is. 🤔
