Busy day today. I have been playing with simple gluing and enjoying the fantastic double sided glue/tape that my husband brought home for me from work. It's o strong!

The plate came out quite nice. (The candle is for size). The jarrah bowl was so thirsty! I ended up spraying 2 coats of varnish on it and it still didn't shine like I would have liked. I'm going to have to sand it back again, as it just didn't sand down well enough - but I had fun doing it. :)

Sweet! I really like the shape and the two color contrast.

I finally made a glue block. Best thing I ever did. I used some doublesided tape that my husband brought home. It was so strong that I had a couple of catches it actually made the belt squeal. :)

The bowl is made of a segmented hard wood that used to be sold for flooring. It's extremely hard and gives my tools a lot of grief, but I kept on going. :)

Finish is Danish oil, shallac and then a coating of Carnauba Wax. It's the size of a side plate or a large soup bowl.

Oh. Sorry. :)  I'm still learning types. I don't know to be honest.  I found this 3 meter long plank that is quite thick, but looks like they have glued 1 inch slats all together to make the board.  It was at a salvage yard. all I know, it's as hard as nails but fun to work with.  It could be a selection of different types of Australian hard wood.

This bowl was originally supposed to have a foot with an inset rim (similar to the cherry bowl I just posted before it), but I got it too thin and it split when I mounted it in the chuck. So instead, I had to cut a tenon. I hate removing tenons, but it seems to have worked out nicely. Finish is walnut oil.

Captive ring attempt.
 
First real attempt at captive ring. I broke the ring right at the point of separation. Next time I'll try it a little differently. :)

I only did it deep enough as a tea light candle stand, but originally had every intention of doing a "glass".

Made of white gum with some natural edge.

I think this is cherry, with some nice curly figuring in it. There were some hairline cracks in the endgrain, which I attempted to stabilize with thin CA. Unfortunately, it soaked in quickly and stained the piece. In retrospect, there was no need for it anyway, and I should have simply left the cracks as they were... :-/ The finish (walnut oil) made the stains somewhat less conspicuous, but they're still visible. Ah, well... lessons learned.

This might be of interest to ye guys it's easy to do if needed !
 
Here's a sander I've made using my lathe .
I used a fly wheel from an old sander I had and turned an oak block for the main drive wheel .
The belts are cut from larger belts from my drum sander which are 3ft wide .
The main structure is hinged to a block which is bolted to the lathe .

Finally it arrived, but how much work it took to fix it, I made many adjustments following all the directions found on the web, although it is a great car and even a famous brand can not understand how he can get out of a factory with all those changes to be done to make work decent, however we pull up our sleeves and begin some work .....

Latest effort. :) This is the bowl part. Now to do the lid. I'm going to keep it in a light wood, as I don't have a lot of choice at the moment and want to keep it all the same colour. This is cedar.

+Lewis Kauffman​ behind of the mortar you can see the traditional way to paint the olive trees at Greece ! Every Easter we paint the most of our trees white so when the sun look at the tree the trees are so Bright that scare the incects!
