    Another on the go

    While I am working on the pierced bowl and doing the painting rather than just sitting and watching it do so i thought I would start another project.

    This is a vase the top and bottom are not yet glued together as different woods can move at different rates even through the process of just turning them. I have left these for a couple of days and should glue and decorate tomorrow.

    Now while waiting for this one should I start another

    Nice bit of Oak, Nice bit of ? Maple? I wish I had a record lathe that could turn vertically.... Tell me is the bowl hollow? and if it is does the tube match into the hollow? If so respect for that length.

    It is Laburnum and maple. The bowl is hollow as well as the neck and they do match inside.

    I find it easier to take a photo on the lathe and turn it before finishing as I can get a better idea of the final shape than I could if it is on the lathe horizontally

    Hi Derek,

    that looks superb.

    On first look, I thought it was going to be a table lamp and was more than impressed.

    On second look, I still think it would look superb as a table lamp.....

    Anyway it looks superb !!!!

    Best wishes - Jim
