Turning Archive 2005
Jim Shaver - Oakville, Ontario
Well this is another turning exercise I did today, it’s a “Mini Maple Burl Bowl (say that 10 times fast!).
Anyway, a bit of scrap that I put on the lathe and tried to make a mini form with a curved radius with no foot…and about 2 inches across. I finished it with oil and wax. I found that I had to make really light cuts and move with the gouge to get the shape I was after, when it’s this small you move more in the shoulders than the feet I found.
Anyway, a fun little thing that wobbles and wiggles round on the table, I might try that Egg spinner and give this egg shell a ride!!
Thanks for viewing,
