    Timberstrand and Cube on the Bias

    Well I finished bowls 2 and 3. I decided to go "footless in Tacoma" on the Timberstrand bowl. It is 10" wide and 3" tall. The second bowl was a whole new experience!

    Last month at my local club we had a demo by Richard Steppic on "Cube on the Bias". He handed out some extra cubes for anyone who wanted to try it. I thought why not! This was the first time I had ever attempted to turn anything with wings (Keep those nuckles out of the way!!). I believe the cube was made up of Poplar, Cherry and Maple. It is 4.5" wide and 4" tall.

    Both bowls are finished with walnut oil.

    Hope you like them!

    That cube is hyper-cool! But you can't post something like that without pointing us to a tutorial on how to do the glue-up!

    Thanks,

    Bill

    Nice choices all around Keith!
    The Cube on the Bias is a great treatment, and removing the foot on the Timberstrand bowl was an excellent choice.

    The cube was glued up when I got it, just a checkerboard pattern. I will take some mock up picks of the turning process when I get home tonight.

    Both are beautiful but I like the Timberstrand more than the cube.

    I can't choose. Both are really cool looking.
