Pretty hot here too in this kneck of the woods, but managed to turn a couple of natural edge pieces. Nothing to fancy with this bowl. I had a huge Chinese Elm cut down in my yard about 20 years ago and have had a few slabs laying under the deck since so dug one out and made this bowl. It is 9" across and 4" at the highest.

The Vase is from my neighbor's Maple tree I ran across the street and grabbed a few chunks when he cut it down. Not much turning was required on the Lathe except I used the lathe to drill out the center for the vase. It stands 8"h

I decided to turn some wooden cartridge cases, and was having fun. Then Hurricane Ida decided to give my area a direct hit. Been without power for 4 days now.
I took advantage of the cooler weather and sat outside and read a book this morning. Also went out and picked up a load of pecan logs from the tree that fell in my brother’s yard.
Should be back to turning in a day or two when the power is back on.

It's 99 today, so staying out of the heat.  Been making good progress over the last two weeks.  Turned my largest bowl to date +10".  Also having fun with catches, busted a red oak vase just as I was finishing it up...

I'm not sure if this is my original idea or if I copied it, but I made a couple acorn tops which double as small boxes as threaded lids.

This is the first one - because of the mass (weight) and the distribution of said mass, they are a little difficult to spin. However, they will spin and for some time.

I forgot to sand out the inside of the lid in this one.

Size: If I recall correctly, I used a 1.5 forstner bit to drill out the inside of the lid on this one - so ~2 inches. It spins better than the slightly smaller (1.25 inch bit) that I made next.

What did you use to texture the lid?

A Wagner tool - it's a knurled wheel that you hold up against the workpiece as it spins on the lathe.

I like making these little boxes where the lid also functions as a spinning top. This one is made from canarywood with a top from bloodwood with a bubinga spindle.
