New piece

Finished this guy a couple weeks back n thought id share. Tried to push myself hard and it came out just how i wanted it to.Still stands after wood movement turned from wet cherry. Took 8 days start to finish. Terrified the whole way through lol. Started between centers, shaped outside hollowed inside still between centers. Put a tennon on, reversed, shaped inside. Took caliper measurements for depths and widths at those depths gave me template for shaping bottom of vase. Reversed it again to jamb chuck shaped bottom w tailstock support then at the veeeerrrry end removed tailstock and shaped the tip. Bout cried when it sat up all by itself lol. Happy turnin all,
Bond

Now that is beyond cool! You are one lucky dude to finish that without it blowing up. Friend of mine used to make these too with a very low success rate.

I like yours more though. The twigs and the vase in the bowl are the icing on the cake.

Happy turning!

Thanks all! I sure did keep my fingers clear although a coupla weeks ago i was turning a table leg and the guy who supplied em forgot to get all the nails. I hit one n bayum! Threw my tool up and hand to the side where the tip of my finger got sucked in and pinched between fan and toolrest. Maaaan did it hurt! after bandaging the sucker n finishing the legs i brought em in threw em on the table and said i think i deserve a chrstmas bonus. Fastest check ive ever seen someone write lol. Wont be doing any more (from the farmhouse) stuff for a while:)

OUCH 2!!!!! I'm glad that's all it done...something about wood, gotta be careful especially when someone else brings it to you. I guess from a sawing perspective I didn't realize a nail would throw the chisel....I just loose sawteeth.
Ooops I almost forgot.....THAT IS AWESOME!!!! Great turning!!!!

Upgrading to Cooks rollerguides on the saw and expect to saw heavy between Christmas and New Years.

Have a Blessed and Prosperous day in Jesus's Awesome Love, Tim
