Platter in black walnut, the edge is finished with a band in yellow copper. The copper powder is scattered in a groove and fixated with thin CA glue. The platter has a diameter of 350 mm and the height is 55 mm, because of the descending edge she seems lower. The hollowing under the rim was the difficult part. The platter is finished with the food safe oil of Doctor’s Woodshop.

First coat of finish applied. I wanted to go even thinner with the wings but thought I should quit while I still have wings instead of projectiles!!

Thanks for the very wise comment +Ivor Erskine. Best to be a chicken for the first attempt and keep the wings. I might go thinner on the next one I do.

Open segmented bowl constructed with the help of one of the Segeasy plates distributed by Dennis Keeling. The bowl is build out of 9 layers consisting 217 pieces of cherry, maple and black walnut. The measurements are 250 x 105 millimetres. The finish is walnut oil from Doctors Woodshop.
 I named the bowl "Shamrock".

April competition in my local wood turning club is a gavel and base. I decided just to use up whatever bits of off cuts I had rather than use something I was saving for another project. First time making one of these and now that I have it finished I would probably have made the gavel much smaller but I was thinking that my 14 month old son will have lots of fun bashing stuff with it. Decided to put a little detail inside the bottom of the base just for the practice. I'll see how it goes tomorrow.

Came 3rd in the competition. Not bad out of 4 ha ha. It was good practice and learned that if I have to make this project again I will get the proportions right.

Roman harvest kit in Japanese maple. Stabilized with cactus juice, CA finish. And sage out there willing to talk me through correct CA finish? I've read a bunch and tried more, but it's tough and go still.

I'm new to wood turning and my neighbor cut down his 16inch diameter pear tree. He said I could have as much as I want. Is pear good for turning. Thanks.

Yes. It's one of the best turning woods. Grab as much as you can or you'll be kicking yourself later for leaving it. :-)

Recently saw a video on YouTube of a winged bowl made from a small log. I had this piece so thought I'd give it a go. Still a work in progress. Going to try make the wings thinner but really don't want to break them off. Just have to see how it goes. No finish applied yet to the bottom. Lots of hand sanding ahead of me!!

Is that the 1642?  It's a wonderful machine.  I really like mine.  Only problem is the sensor which reads the speed of the lathe tends to get loose and misalign.  After a while you won't need it.  Hopefully they have fixed the issue with newer ones.

Easter is a good time to practice eggs with the skew. The egg shape really displays the grain nicely, so of course, my dear wife had to cover all that nice figure with paint. Any way, here what they looked like when she got through with them.
