Thank You Mark Placek
Apr 15th, 2013 at 3:14pm
 
My sister is getting married(again) and I thought even though they said no presents, that I would try something I had seen on Mark Placek's site. An offset square rimmed bowl. It took me sometime to figure out a way to get this done. This is my attempt at this method of bowl turning.
the bowl is 12" then offset(it just turns on my 18" swing lathe), it is done to 1/4" thickness with 3/4" offset, finished with WOP.
What do you think of it(your comments as always are very much appreciated).
ps. thank you for the information on this site about getting the colour better in the pictures smiley=thumbsup.gif.

I like it.

I'm wondering if this belongs in the segmenting board?

It is your call Ron, I just posted under turning because I wasn't first of all showing because of the different woods, but of how I got it together. If you think this should be moved then that is where it will be. Thanks. Dirk H

Dirk,  I love it.  I like the way you carried the lighter wood through both sides of the offset.

I sure hope I get to see it in person on Saturday. I know it's going to be even better in person.

Made my eyes go all wonky and in the first pic it looks like the top is wavy.   Very cool bowl.  Was this done as a bowl from a board?

Ohh myyy goodness!  I pulled up pic #3 first and thought my computer messed up!  It is fantastic how the art of turning is re-invented on a regular basis.  WELL DONE!

It is done from the bowl from a board method and then the idea of the offset I worked in there. I do not know how Mark Placek did that, but I did some heavy thinking(wood burning) and came up with a way that I could get that done.
thank you for your comments, I feel that the bowl is kinda top heavy, so I thought that if I made it thin enough it would take some of that feel away from it. In order to show the offset in my mind I had to make a flat rim area to show it. May be it is not required, I will rethink how the big top look can be done away with and keep the concept. smiley=thumbsup.gif

I was doing fine until I saw the red in there, I will have to check out Mark Placek's site to see more of this.

If I get married again can I have one?  Believe me I have gotten married for worse reasons.
