    I went to the shop this afternoon without much of a plan other than just wanting to go. In the morning, I worked on a design for another tea light lantern, but I had my mind set on going to the shop.

  • Bowl Turning | Black Limba

    In today’s video, I turn a bowl with Black Limba. This turned out much better than I anticipated. The wood was great to work with, as well.

    I needed an easy win today. I went to the workshop. It didn’t quite work out the way I was hoping it would.

    Wood Turning | Padauk Bowl

    In this video, I work on a bowl made of Padauk. This bowl developed over time, eventually turning out differently than I had intended. I do want to see my original idea through, so I’ll order another square bowl blank. This bowl provided great learning, even through all of the frustrations. Let me know what…

  • Bowl Turning | Sycamore Bowl

    Bowl Turning | Sycamore Bowl

    In this week’s video, I turn a bowl out a Sycamore blank. This project ended up killing my lathe – the motor burnt out. I was at it for a good four hours or so. My lathe isn’t all that big or powerful but I didn’t think I was pushing it too hard. I was…
