I got a package from Sweden today.
Edit: I just watched it and it is pretty neat. Wille is a bad ass for sure.
For you bowl turners, just sweep the grind on your big spindle roughing gouge and use your skew point down like Wille, you pussy.
Had a great turning session yesterday. This hollow form was the last thing I made. Kind of a dumpy shape but is my first hollow form. Used a homemade captive hollowing rig I had borrowed that was too small. Had a lot of chatter but was happy with the result
I had a fun turning session tonight.
First post of the year and it is a marvelous sunset from today. I’ve been sick so far this year. Today is the first day I’ve felt alive. Hopefully this is the sunset of the crud in my body.
Scraped and detailed back leg joint.
Ok, look at the grain from the rail to the back leg. The way the grain makes a corner at the corner of the joint and the grain along the rail follows the curve of the piece and it aligns with the leg at the corner, is really really really cool.
Spoils of the ice storm. Several hundred pounds of walnut so fresh it hasn’t started to check.
Saved from the firewood pile. This pile of oak was given to us by friends that moved away. Bowl #3 What Goes Around Comes Around 9.25”x4.5”
