hello folks heres a breif step by step on some burr oak vessels i've been doing recently
heres the blocks fresh from the chainsaw
6" faceplate attached
on the lathe ready to spin
knocked into the round- but the pith is in the top and runs diagonally through the piece, will this cause a problem?
hollowed out to around an 1/8" and sanded to 320 in this pic
oiled with lemon oil ready to part of
heres the two bits from the two blocks that i made that day- they will now go in to my drying cupboard where they will dry and warp. there was some rot in the second piece i turned so i had to reduce the diameter to get rid of it.
