New Bowls

Thanks for your patience as the new lathe is taking longer than I would have thought.  I have had to order a new chuck and new mandrel.  It will be up and running in the next several weeks.  I have several bowls in progress.  These include three in maple and one in the spalted maple.  I will also get the largest bowl that I have done when the lathe is up and running.  I will try to post pictures of the rough cut bowl.

I will be lowering the prices on a lot of the inventory to get more interest in the site.  Need to tell your friends to get the lower prices for as long as they last.

Thanks for everyone who has purchased in the past, and hope to see you in the future.  I am going to try different techniques and hope you enjoy the outcome of whatever comes of my trial and error.DSC_0143

Angel Winged Bowl

This week I tried to change the winged Cherry Bowl as most people look at it.  Most winged bowls are shallow and it seems to be the nature to have a very even cupped out bowl if you want to have wings.  However I decided to try something different.  I cut the bowl part of the winged bowl a little deeper, which gives it more of a bowl feeling, but kept the wings that gives the traditional look.  The outcome was fantastic.  The wings reach to the sky, and the bowl has a depth that can not be found in the traditional winged bowl.  I was also able to leave some of the bark on the edges of the bowl, which gives it a rich character.  Take a look and give me your thoughts and any suggestions you may have.DSC_0143

In the weeks to come, I am going to try something I saw on a clip from one of the turning sites.  This will give me a vase with wings.  I will upload progress photos, as I think this will take several weeks to complete.

If anyone has any different techniques, please let me know, and thanks for reading.
