Well I had my chance to try out my new toys.
I am very new to this and just trying to get things set up so I can turn a lot this fall and winter....man this is addictive and fun!!!
I know these are caveman compared to you guys, but I'm working on minimizing my sanding time and going inside a vessel.
I introduced these new tools to my system.
My new Easywood rougher & scraper and a nova chuck.
My homemade Longworth chuck
The blocks were temporary until I got my parts from Woodline.com.
I turned all three of these out in about three hours including unpacking and setting up.
Mahogany from a Newel Post scrap
Black cherry air dried bowl
I need a lot of design and form refinement so I find myself really looking at the shape of bowls these days.
So any and all critique is welcome.
Thanks to all of you who have shared info on my prior posts about starting this addictive art.
