    Icon11 More works in progress....

    Pulled the trigger on a new chuck....went with the Nova Titan 2 and the extra set of 4" serrated jaws. Also decided that making bigger bowls is going to require a way of finishing the 'tenon'...so I picked up a 1-1/4"x8tpi tap(going to make my own mount for clamping bowls).

    And I will also be getting a 1/2" Fingernail Bowl gouge from D-Way Tool! Happy Day!!!


    My mess!





    And did everything but finish the 'tenon' area on a piece of {Celtis reticulata}, Netleaf Hackberry.

    Here is the blank mounted:


    Tenon cut, re-mounted in the 'old chuck', and flipped around:


    Inside sanded:


    Another look:

    Re: More works in progress....

    That brings me to todays turning fun. I roughed out two pieces of {Liquidambar styraciflua}, American Sweetgum.

    I cut the 'tenons' for the 4" chuck, so I didn't get to rough out the inside of the bowls. Turned one from the 'pith' side, and the other from the 'bark' side(even though I removed the bark).


    Nasty piece of timber no#1:


    The other nasty piece of timber no#2:


    The roughed out timber no#1:


    The roughed out timber no#2:





    I have no idea when the 'stuff I ordered' will arrive, but I am ready to make more 'mess'! Hollowing, that should be fun....hopefully the newer tool will make it enjoyable?!?!?




    Thanks for looking...more to follow!

    I have Dave's 1/2" bowl gouge and it is my go to tool. I also got one of his CBN grinding wheels and it really helps sharpening. Looks like the vortex has just about swallowed you up.

    Fred,


    By any chance do you have his 'hollow form rig'? I was looking at it, but it seems complicated....or maybe it is a simple thing and I am over-thinking it.




    Seems making good firewood round and 'funny' looking is an expensive habit. But I just can't stop!!!

    Scott I have an articulating hollowing tool from Monster tools. It is a good rig but one is kind of limited to how deep one can hollow. Check out http://monster-lathe-tools.com/. Lyle Jamison make a captive hollow tool that will work for deeper hollowing.
    Just a couple things to wet the appetite.

    You have to adjust for inflation. I remember when you could get a candy bar and a coke for a dime.

    I'm pretty sure a 1970 Mustang with enough Bondo to make a set of shocks weak is still going to 'fetch' about $125.00(especially with three flat tires).


    And I can only remember being able to get one or the other of those for a dime! I'm only 25 after all(it's my story and I am sticking to it).

    Consider the savings on the material as an offset to the price of the toys and keep playing.
