Re: I haven't given up..... yet.

Curt, your jars are so nice I would have a hard time using one for a learning process. That is if I could turn that shape, I've tried once and it didn't work out. :oops: I would think it would be extremely difficult to put the vertical lines on a curve piece. You are doing very well for just learnin...

Congratulations on the POP show! The amphora shape is a favorite of mine, thanks for the process explanation! I'm looking forward to the process pics too.

Re: Spalted Birch Bowl

Thank you, for all the nice comments! Me likey... That's another super curve on some beautiful wood. Perfect combination. I've pointed this out elsewhere...but 'foot'? Just one? No 'feet'? Are you getting lazy? :roflmao: Mike, this one used up the allotted overtime before I got to the foot. :lol: Ge...

Spalted Birch Bowl

This Spalted Birch bowl is about 9 1/2" x 3 3/4", finished with Watco Danish oil. I was surprised that it so translucent, but just on the end grain. When I first noticed it I checked the thickness, thought I might be turning through it. From my experience this is a tricky wood to let spalt. They see...

Re: Tampering with Segments

Some nice looking wood in there and all the joints look tight. It also looks like there is some decoration on the base or is that segmented at an angle? I've never done any segmented work, but I'm sure there is a learning curve to get everything just right. Good for you to try this!

Wow Curt, you sure are a fast learner! As Chuck said, "I'm impressed. Seriously impressed." I like the Will Rogers reference, it takes me all three to make any progress at all. :roflmao:

Beautiful job all the way around Chuck. The goblet is excellent on it's own, but the artwork really makes it special. I sure would enjoy your demo! As I won't be there to ask questions I'll ask now. :lol: What kind of pens did you use for the artwork and what finish can you use over them? I am think...

Re: Ambrose Maple NE Bowl- Winner TOTW 1-7-2018

Thank you, Michael, for this honor! Having such a nice piece of wood sure was a good start to make this bowl. I know that there are fewer problems by having three legs. But, being somewhat OCD I have a hard time deciding where to place three legs on natural edge, somewhat oblong bowls, round ones ar...

Re: Bear was here

What size is this Wolfgang? I like it, to me the front has a bit of an Oriental look to it. Is the recess in the back also a French Cleat to use it as a wall hanging?

Re: Wig stands

That is an excellent selection of wig stands, they are creative and each have their personalities. It is generous and caring for you and other club members to donate your time and talents to make these. 2thumbsup

Re: Maple Bowl

That is some especially nice Maple! The Bloodwood rim and food adds a nice contrast, making it even more special. So I take it that this is a bit over 2" tall with the foot and rim, just guessing, but it looks like a single piece of the 8/4 board.

Thanks for the additional comments! Wolfgang, I especially appreciate that you let me know this isn't "your cup of tea;" I did have to Google Baba Yaga's Hut, to get the reference. :)

Re: Cherry Burl Bowl?

Just my opinion, but I've liked the smaller feet you do much more than these long Ramsey sort of legs. You've done a great job on them though, in fact I think you do the feet on bowls as well as any I've seen. And for the record, the long legs Ramsey does are my least favorite of his too. That's a ...

Curt, that is an awesome first woodburning piece! I too was surprised with a new woodburning setup! Well I wasn't that surprised, as I bought it for myself. :lol: But, like you said, I can barely print my name legibly, it's so bad I could be a doctor. Writing my name is as far as I have gotten with ...

Thanks Mike! You did comment on the FB post. :1thumbup I guess seeing I had to use hollowing tools I should call it a hollow form. Anyway, when I brought it up to the house my wife called it hers. :roflmao:

Re: Cherry Burl Bowls- Winner TOTW 12-24-2017

Marc, I think the Oneway system has less of a learning curve than the McNaughton system, getting started anyway. I had thought the McNaughton system is more versatile. Then seeing the stacked Oak burl Christmas tree that Chris Ramsey made, I thought he must have used the McNaughton and was surprised...

Re: Natural Edged Box Elder Bowl

What a nice piece of Manitoba burl! I think the Canadian name sounds better than Box Elder. I like the form that you were able to keep the natural edge all around. It looks to me from the top picture that it is slightly oblong. It could be just the difference in the natural edge. Did you turn this t...

Re: Recovered Ruins 31

This is a great addition to your Recovered ruin series! It looks like a real knuckle buster (potentially). Do you put a piece of tape on the long piece of the lip for a reminder it’s there?
