Well as far as material goes this is what I have, oh, I'm sure y'all know what I always have in stock. LOL.

Kiln dried..
Cherry
Birdseye maple
Walnut (duh)
Poplar (very little)
Paduak (very little)
Cocobola (very little)

I was thinking that say... 5 items?, y'all choose those items, start Friday (I work Friday night through Sunday non stop) judge Sunday, and this be fun, not something to get hurt over due to trying to beat the clock.

I have an old Sears mono tube lathe a few crappy chisels, 4 jaw harbor freight chuck, no reverse on lathe. No Cole jaws, nothing fancy.

I don't have much, if any solid material I'd chuck up.

It's all fun and games until someone loses the Walnut.

Oldmac and Horatio, what I would really like to see the two of you do is a simple bowl, but with a continuous (or near continuous curve) both inside and out. No flat spots. Consistent wall thickness throughout. To judge, cut it in half when finished. For a reference, see firehawks recent bowl post.

That bowl was perfect right up until that last cut...

But...why cut a perfectly good bowl in half? lol

Eh, okay, I'll do it but I'm not sure how well I will fare.

In terms of materials, I have:

Mesquite (a whole lot)
Nogalito (Texas Walnut/blk walnut) (eh, enough for a few items)
Cedar (meh...got quite a bit)
Oak (all of it really green though)
Sycamore (a few pieces left though alot of it punky)
Mystery Wood! I have an ugly little tree in my backyard my wife wants me to cut down but it supposedly has pretty nice grains to it. I may or may not hack it down. Its half dead and has some presumed spalting action going on.

I try and use continuous curves in most of my bowls. My problems are with thickness and finish. Carbide tools are great but I need to get some decent conventional tools. The ones I have are crap.

I will probably not be able to do anything segmented beyond gluing a few chunks together. Still hunting for a band saw. Or a tale saw. I might attempt to cut and sand down a plank the old fashioned way and chop it up on the miter saw but that seems like a hell of alot of work, heh.



Oh yeah, apparently, I have Shingles. WTF?!? I got a scrip for the good pain killers at least for the nerve deal.

Cut a bowl in half to see how consistent you actually got the thickness. Don't use a nice piece of wood. Whatever you have that's wet would be even better, cause you don't have to sand it. And NO working with tools while on pain killers
