The weather’s finally warm enough for me to do some woodturning again.
I’ve been wanting to make some more “green” Beech bowls from the trees I chopped up early last year. Here are pics of the process.
chainsawed a “50p” shaped bowl blank from a slab of wood that’s been sitting in the shed:
spinning at about 2,000 rpm:really nice spalting all the way through: some homemade beeswax and oil applied, with help from a bit of heat: inside done too… and the underneath finished in the reversing jaws: all done – will try and let it finish drying out slowly to avoid serious cracking, but it’s bound to warp a fair bit…
