Another fine video from Hamilton Studios.

Ever thought of doing a soap opera? As The Burl Turns, or maybe the All My Chisels?   Grin

Great job Bob.  I have worked on two crotched bowls like this....neither of them have made it to the finishing stage yet Smiley
I have learned some great pointers here that will improve my chances on try #3. 
As always, wonderful video and thanks for your efforts!!!

Very well done Bob. Would you consider adding one more segment showing some sanding on the wings, that looks like the more nerve racking part.

WOW - very impressive.

How long were you turning before attempting something with extended edges?

It seems like it would take a leap of faith to get past the safety of rounded edges.

Thanks for the comments, all!

Jim, I really have no idea how long I had been turning before I tried a "winged" form.  I remember the piece and still have it:  Multimedia File Viewing and Clickable Links are available for Registered Members only!!  You need to Login or Register

It was a 6" square by 2" thick blank of granadillo that I bought at Lee Valley in London.  When I went to turn it I could not bear to turn away the sapwood stripes along the corners so it became my first square bowl.  It is not particularly good technically since the bowl part is pretty thick walled and thick bottomed, but it remains one of my favorite pieces that I have turned.

For most of the first 15 years or so I was turning I used wood cut from kiln dried boards as my stock for 99% of my pieces.  It has only been the last 5 years or so that I have been using wood from logs, thus gaining the opportunity to turn irregular pieces like this crotch bowl.

Take care
Bob
