    Quickly done..... *Update* With Video!!

    I have a whole bunch of smaller chunks of wood I got recently, which you can read about >> HERE << and I noticed that some of them were starting to crack a bit, so I thought I'd best get cracking on roughing them out.

    I've got it down to just a little over 10 mintues each from chunk of wood, to slipping it into the DNA bath.....

    Get out my super flute beating stick and have at,
    this is done mostly at about 1000 RPM or higher, as the faster the cut the less time it takes to do....

    While it may be quick, it still makes a mess!

    I did about 20 last night and I'll be doing a bunch more today, I know they are not fine works of art etc, but they are certainly good practice. I also did some in the reverse orientation, so they came out as Natural Edge bowls.

    I hope to be able to give some away, and maybe even sell some

    Cheers!

    Good job! They would have taken me about an evening each. I am amazed at what you get done in The Dungeon.

    Good job Stu. You are getting those down pat. Did I notice right that you had the oneway livecenter on that lathe????

    Ding, dang, bam, boom, I wouldn't do that so fast Stu, but I guess you have more experience in turning bowls than I have, I always take my time and like it to take inbetween a run to the kitchen for another cup of coffee.
    Anyway it looks very good to me.

    You are way ahead of me as usual! I did 10 last night and it sure was fun! I used the wormwood screw but did not use the tailstock.

    Yep, about a dozen are done, I have maybe another 6 or 8 dozen to go

    Bernie, yep, got the Oneway live center, it is one nice piece of equipment

    Pete, I use the tailstock with the worm screw, because I find roughing them out, they can wiggle a bit without it.

    Cheers!

    Stu,

    I first started following your posts on "another forum." I'm so glad that I've hooked on to this one. You and your videos are incredibly informative, always good natured, and truly a delight. Do you ever get to go to the mountainous areas of Japan? They have some pretty impressive trees out there.... I was an East Asian Historian in another life and visited East Asia innumerable times.
    Luck, Hilel.

    Hi Hilel

    Thanks for the kind words.

    Yes, I get out to the country, not as much as I did before, I used to do a lot of motorcycle touring.............


    My apologies to the folks on dial ups

    Glad to see you have found us here at Family Woodworking!!

    My lovely wife said something about not using the snazzy new HDD video camera we got lately, so I had to put it to use.........

    I've got a better version of the videos in the works, better lighting.

    Cheers!
