Matt, It looks like you might be a college student. though perhaps you're just living in an apt. I am just curious. I am currently a college student at RIT for their woodworking program. I don't very often come across other young turners such as myself. I am in a very similar position as yourself right now, very, very limited budget and very limited tools, although i do have a lathe which is most important to me.

Hey I am a college student! I'm a freshmen at NCSU studying Nuclear Engineering. I am doing a lot of this work in my dorm room in the little space that I do have. I do not have many tools, but I do have access to NC State's woodshop which has almost anything that you could want to have for woodworking, it's just hard sometimes traveling back and forth to work on your projects. Glad to see other people close to my age who love woodworking.



And also, I am going to turn my first half of the vase tonight, wish me luck!

Awesome! nice to see someone else my age. I feel your pain as far as having to lug everything back and forth. I don't even have access to a shop yet!

Make sure you post pics on how you made out tonight, i'm sure we'll all be curious to see how it looks

A quick update for the day. I turned the top section of the vase today and I'm fairly happy with how it's turning out so far (no pun intended). So here's a couple pics. I'll be returning to the woodshop tomorrow to turn the bottom!

I haven't done any sanding yet, but I'm hoping to do that all in one process once the two halves are glued together.

Hey everybody. Just want to let you know that the vase is almost complete. Yesterday and today went without a hitch. Yesterday I finished turning the bottom half of the vase, and left the two halves glueing up together on the lathe over night. Today I was able to put on a coat of sanding sealer, apply some CA and dust to one small gap I had in my joints, sand, part off the waste block that I had at the top, finish turning the very top of the top half that I couldn't reach before. Then finished sanding the vase up to 600, and applied my first coat of poly on. So far it's looking good!

I'll be posting up the final in probably a few days in the project showcase forum. Thanks for those that have followed along with this!

Almost Done

Hey everybody, so after 4 consecutive days at the woodshop I am finally close to finishing this piece. I still need to mount it to the lathe one more time to buff it with a power drill and then part it off from it's waste block. So, without further ado here it was it looks like currently...

Hope you guys like it! This has definitely taken the most time out of all my projects thus far!

Well, this is all just a huge experiment, but from what I've seen a couple guys do only they remount it to the lathe and then carefully, CAREFULLY, use a parting tool at a slight upward angle to part it off from the chuck. THen you can do some hand sanding and finish off your bottom to help match the rest of the vase. That's what I am planning, we'll see how this goes!

That looks great, I'm happy to see that people your age are interested in a hobby like woodworking, keep up the great work!

I want to die quietly in my sleep like my grandfather, not screaming in terror like the passengers of his car.

Started out with Bull's coat sanding sealer. This allowed me to fill in the few little gaps I had with CA and wood dust. Then sanded and start application of Min-Wax wipe on poly. The picture was shortly after a fresh coat was applied so it doesn't like quite as glossy as that in person. But It has about 7 coats on total, and will be buffed out once before it is completely finished.


On another note, I got my first commission! Someone I met saw my vase and told me that they wanted one, and I will be starting all over again shortly. I will try to put up a thorough segmented tutorial so those who have never done it can give it a go!
