    Latest HF.... Hollow Form Turning

    I was able to get my hands on a few maple burls last fall and this is the largest of the forms I was able to turn from it. I hollowed it out green using my Kobra but returned it free hand. It is just a little heavier than the basket ball in the last picture. I was able to turn this form thinner...

    First large vase using the Kobra system

    This is the first large vase that I finished using the Kobra system. It is around 13" tall and finished with lacquer. The first picture is of it after I roughed it out. The second picture is of it after I finished it. Can't take credit for the finished picture since it was taken at a turning...

    A few of my latest off the lathe

    Thanks again everyone! David, I've done a number of demo's at three of the local turning clubs but still have not ventured into classes at my shop. Being 6' 4" my lathe at home is set up to tall for most students to use well and there is the liability of having people use my personal equipment...

    Turners Smock Useul?

    MultiCam® Woodturner’s Smock - Woodturners Catalog - Woodworking tools and supplies specializing in woodturning.= This one is extremely light weight and doesn't show spots of finish or CA glue that have got onto it. The pockets in the back are very useful as well. Jack

    Wolverine or Tormek Ever on Sale?

    Keep you eyes looking at Hartville tool. They have Oneway stuff on sale from time to time and I was one of the lucky customers to stumble onto the sale they had on their Tormek sharpeners when the T-7 came out. I think that they had 3 of the older ones that they sold for half of what the new T-7...

    GWL Update - Week 1 and 2 (Pic heavy!)

    Great looking turnings for your first stuff of this lathe. I hope you don't use the table saw much in the pictures, because if your like most turners it becomes a horizontal surface to set turning related items on and takes half an hour just to move the stuff off so that it can be used. :gar-BiI...

    Maple burl rough out

    Mike, I turn burls just like all the wood I get. I turn them green and it's thickness to around 10% of the Dia. of the form or bowl and place it in one or two brown paper bags and lay it on the concrete floor in the back of my shop to dry for 3 months or more. I check it ever other week and Zap...

    Maple burl rough out

    I've been looking at the burls on a large red maple tree for years and it was cut down last year when the property was developed for commercial use. I stopped and asked about it before they got around to cutting it and was told that it was already spoken for and was to be sawed into lumber. It...

    Hollowing systems

    I have and use the Kobra hollowing system. It is built like a tank and is the only articulated arm hollowing system that I know of that can go over 20" deep. It is more pricey than most but worth it if you want to go really deep with an articulated hollowing system. They don't make but a few of...
