Well, I've tried. I really did. But my little lathe doesn't seem to have the horsepower for something like this. It keeps stopping, and I'm afraid of burning out the motor.  Sad Hopefully next time I can participate.

Use a smaller log.  I only have a mini lathe and I have tried these several times.  They always ended up in pieces, but that was beside the point.   Shocked Shocked

So far I haven't been able to keep the NE on any of mine, that is why I haven't committed... my burn pile is growing as my turn pile is shrinking and the LOML is now wearing ear plugs!!! bang head bang head bang head

Jim, I"m not a member of the ( make your lathe sound like a cessna ) club, but if you need more people I'll give it a try.
Heck, if I can do it...

Ed, that is why we call it a challenge.  So many of the earlier challenges have gotten people to try new forms and they have found that they were easier than they thought, and made more.  Look at how many have tried the reverse hollowing Robert suggested.

We would welcome another participant.  Who knows, you may end up doing big propellers.

I know, I'm STILL making ornaments, thanks to you. Grin
So including myself, how many participants are there?

5 signed up, and 4 maybes.  And if I can get the garage doors installed and the shop put back together in time, I'll be in.

Multimedia File Viewing and Clickable Links are available for Registered Members only!!  You need to Login or Register  I'm not ready to enter yet but here's my first attempt at this type of turning done this morning. Made from a crab apple trunk I cut 17 mths ago, I was doing well till just a final smooth pass on the inside and snaged a tip of a wing and out she came and flying  Angry. Torn bad but the waste block held and I'll practice a finish on the apple for experience. I'll be at it again in a few days.

Looks like a good start.  Since you didn't mention any pain, I assumed you weren't hurt by the flying piece.

The third time was the charm for me.  Not sure what my issue was the first 2 times.  The third time though, it all clicked for me.  Got it done yesterday.  Waiting for the finish to dry so that I can buff it out.  I've had a couple of folks see it already and say something like, "What's that?"  I simply have no way to tell them other than call it a "dust catcher."  Even LOML said something about it being different and that she kind of likes it.  Pretty high praise from her.  Anyway, it is done (basically) and will go in the box in a couple of days.  Just waiting on an addy from the chief challenge maker.  WooHoo!  Now I can sit back and watch the rest of you squirm as you try to finish yours.  This really is a fun project that does challenge your tool usage and nerve.  Don't feel like you have to work down to starting your sanding at 220 or something.  I started sanding at 60 grit, mostly done off the lathe.  One thing I re-learned with this piece:  I HATE SANDING!
