My Largest Turning

My Largest Turning

After completing a hardwood flooring project which involved a curved staircase I had a large quantity of offcuts. I decided to use these to produce a segmented vase. At 17in tall and 10in at the maximum diameter this is the largest turning I have done and really tested my trusty old Record No3 lathe.

My version of a "Stick Vase"

Jim Lorriman demonstrated his technique for making his stick bowls and vases at one of the guild meetings. I was quite inspired by the items he produced and attempted one myself. It certainly was not as easy as Jim made it look. I was however quite taken with the outcome, particularly the "faces" that showed up as the turning developed.

This set was made as a birthday present and I tried to mimic the technique made famous by Israeli turner Eli Avisera

Fruit Cherry Bowl

When I had to take down a diseased fruit cherry tree in my garden I salvaged as much of the wood as I could. This bowl came out of a triple crotch section of the tree. The one area was full of bark inclusions, resinous gum and voids but adds a natural "design feature". The bowl is one of those you either love it or hate it things.

Celtic Knot Fun

Celtic Knot Fun

A special request for a 12inch tall salt and pepper mill set came in when I was trying various Celtic knot combinations. I put what I was trying to use in this set.

"Top Ring Bowl"

After making the Jim Lorriman inspired stick vase I had one ring left over. After months of trying to think of some use for it I eventually came up with this.
