Beautiful save Pete...I think we can all relate to holding onto a piece with good intentions to resurrect as you did here.

Re: Jovianesque

Bob, missed seeing this one. I like it...and excellent embellishing, as always. Agree with others that you've got a truly recognizable style, and one liked by many. Congrats on that alone. I do look at this and wonder how to effectively turn it into a box, with wavy edge when split. Perhaps some ban...

Peppermill and salt shaker - Ambrosia Maple

Went to a local flea market this past weekend and snagged a couple nice cutoffs from larger slabs of walnut and maple. I got a bowl lblank from each, and had some left over material on the maple blank for peppermills. The ppm is about 8-1/2" tall, the salt shaker 4-1/2" tall. The ppm parts...

Re: Polar shaft completed (more or less)

Enjoy seeing that you've been plugging away steadily with this. Can understand it doesn't exactly make you think about "the next one", but I'd suspect it will be an emotional insightful time when you can say it's finished. Keep em coming DD...we're here watching and enjoying this journey.....

Re: 3-Cornered Red

Very nice Roger. As said, the thickness and crisp edges help really drive some wow factor for a form like this. Gotta watch out for those little wings while turning! 2thumbsup

Re: What do you see?

Well, what do I see? I'd have to go with all of the above, though similarities seem to pervade. I like seeing all the shades of green, perhaps even interpreting as the same color, with different amounts of light added to them...might be a stretch on that. Interesting that you chose just a few orient...

Fantastic piece David, I like it on many levels. I've got a similar form that's been sitting in a "near completion" box for years, waiting on inspiration for a proper base...I may have found some inspiration here. Congrats on TOTW, well deserved! 2thumbsup BTW, Curt and DD bring up good co...

Very nice form and finish Curt. This shape should be a natural for you...just a bit squattier version of the jar shape you've done so often. Love the curl in walnut!! 2thumbsup

Re: I need a good SCREW!

My faceplate I use most has counter sunk holes for use with flat head screws. I use the largest flat head wood screws that will fit, typically #14 or #12. You'll booger up the #3 Philips head and want to replace it before breaking the screw. When head starts getting kinda gnarly, just pitch em and r...

Re: NIP Hollow form again

I hope you don't mind, but this is one way to get perspective on where my thoughts were with this piece. Can't begin to tell you how many folks (like Steve) helped convince me that a finial wasn't necessary to make a piece stand out (or in so many words of advice).

Re: NIP Hollow form again

Ron, the orientation of the branch flames on that piece is awesome, like an explosion. I like the finial much better on this one, it seems in line with size of body and it flows much nicer into the shape of the shoulder. The base...I've had situation where I drilled too deeply and was faced with sim...

Re: Banksia Peppermill - 2017- Winner TOTW 7-30-2017

Thank you Dick, I got my pods from Jim Syvertsen at Australian Burls, but if he's out, Bad Dog Burl is another source. They typically refer to this size as "whopper" pods. The amount and use of the walnut is probably for function than form, as I wouldn't be comfortable pressing in the mech...

Re: NIP Hollow form

Ron, beautiful shape to the vessel, and I like how the branch crosses thru. NIP is fun, but can be prone to tear out being a soft wood. I'd say that wasn't an issue for your from looks of this. I'd like seeing the base of the finial flow out of the shoulder on the piece, or oddly enough, a sharper t...

Well, I didn't see that coming. Thanks for the TOTW honors David. I really appreciate the feedback from all the WTU members. :D, thanks folks!
I'm thinking a bleached version should be pretty cool as well, but I need to do some experimentation on small stock.
