How to make flat vase.
Jan 23rd, 2011 at 11:53am
 
As I promised, here it is tutorial to flat vase. First you need two different woods(actually no, but it looks nicer ). I'm using birch and elm. And waste wood is also needed (not needed if large piece of wood is available).

Here is the elm plates to the vase, already turned. I left the holding area there because it's not seen on inside. And it's faster to do. You can turn it of if you like. Little shoulder on the side is left so it set better on the main piece. Dimensions are centimeters not inches =)

Here i have already sawn  the birch and glued two piece of waste wood on it. Faceplate is also screwed on. There is little cap on upper waste block and birch. It doesn't matter this will be sanded to shape after turning.

After rounding the piece. Make the piece flat and then hollow so you can fit the first plate on it's place.  You should but some marks on plate and the body so you don't mix the plates. And make holding area for your chuck.

When plate is fitted. Start to shape vase. I'm using simple cardboard jig to make both sides same. In the picture you can see how i did the fitting for plate.

Make the second place for plate and make the other side to match to other side. When this is done and your happy to shape, sand to finish. Remove bottom waste block if added. Now you can start hollowing the inside. In the picture you can see what kind chisel I was using and it's almost hollowed. Remember to take the measurement from bottom so you don't make two openings to vase. Sand inside and remove the inside.

In this picture I have removed the wasteblock. Sand the opening place not those what you did on lathe. I used belt sander.

Now make the opening bigger. Draw lines. I drilled some holes and then sanded to final shape.

After sanding progress you can glue the plates on. Actually i glued only one side so it's easier to finish inside.

If any questions I'm happy to answer. Never done any turning tutorials, so I think there is missing some tips. And I'm not sure if I have spelled words even right. And word order might be funny. But i haved fun to make shavings! So let's hope this one helps someone!

+1 on that!  I really like the look of this vase... and I know exactly where I'd put it to use.

Thanks for the tutorial!  smiley=thumbsup.gif

That looks really great. My only question is when and how do you hold it to turn the recess in the very top?

It looks like there are pictures associated with the initial post on this thread, but I do not see them.  It sounds very interesting and I'd like to see what is being talked about here.  Is there a setting I need to change or something?   Undecided  Thanks.  Jeff.

He cut the curve in the top and the flat bottom before he mounted the sides.

Picture two you can see how I sawn the piece. The small hole comes when the inside gets bigger than outside in this point. Then main bodys top is sanded to shape and then the opening is drilled bigger and sanded. This can done in essentrics chuck so the opening hole comes bigger but  I tried that. It was very scary, so I did it in my way (safer way, so I can still turn).

If you only got part of the pictures try hitting "refresh". Sometimes you'll get the rest.
