My entry in the 2 X 4 Challenge
Sep 28th, 2016 at 7:42pm
 
I'm finishing up a project for the 2 X 4 Challenge being hosted by Brian Gidney of Summers Woodworking. You can find him on YouTube and Facebook. You need to build something out of a single 2 X 4. I chose to make this bowl and used about 32 inches of a 2 x 4. Three segmented rings (18 segments per) and a solid bottom. Measures about 7" by 2" deep, finished with Danish Oil. I used my Wedgie Sled and Shopsmith Powerpro as the main tools. A video will be up in a few days when I have a chance to edit it. This bowl took 2 1/2 days from start to finish!

Excellent! Do you just woodglue the pieces together? I've always wondered about blow out, and thus haven't tried it yet personally.

I'll give it a go, I've always been skeptical of glue. Even when I know it works. My mind just refuses to accept this truth.

I've got lots of scrap 2x4's that would be fun to make use of.

I do enjoy the 2x4 contests, was this one strictly for turning.

No, the rules simply say to "make something". Only a few people enter a turning project. We're special!🤓
I should add, Fir is a lousy wood to turn, and not a lot of fun to sand either!

I did well in a contest about 10 years ago, I made a small arch top chest.
I really enjoy seeing all the different things people come up with.
