My photo booth at work no longer exists, and I haven't made other arrangements yet. This is the first box I've made. I took a hands-on class with Bob Rosand last year to learn how to do this, but most of the class was spent doing much simpler things. Had the wood ready and sitting there, but never got around to trying it. This challenge seemed like the perfect opportunity, except it isn't 4" square.<br /><br />8 comments http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=432&title=maple-burl-box&cat=511 http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=432&title=maple-burl-box&cat=511 Fri, 18 Mar 2005 13:27:14 +0000 Square turning challenge project <a href="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=431&amp;title=square-turning-challenge-project&amp;cat=511"><img class="imgborder" title="5DSC02168.JPG" border="0" src="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/data/511/thumbs/5DSC02168.JPG" alt="5DSC02168.JPG" /></a><br /><br />by: Philip Peak<br /><br />Description}: Square turning seems to be all the rage. I have to be honest though I cheated. By the way only one piece, the larger one of the two is the trade piece for the challenge. I had a small piece of the stock left over so I made my wife the small one. The technique I used I saw in a WOOD magazine last month. They author of the article took a suare piece of wood and glued scrap blocks around the outside turned it as if were a round piece and then using a bandsaw cut off the scrap pieces leaving a square bowl. I thought that was cool but I didn't like the idea of using the bandsaw. What I did was glue up enough scrap pieces to make a block just under 4&quot; square and about 6-7 inches long. I took four 4&quot; wide and 6&quot; long pieces of pine board and glued then to the outside of the block with newspaper in between the block and the board turned it round until the corners of the original block were just barely showing and then hollowed it after making a small part at the 4&quot; mark down the length of the piece so I knew how deep to hollow. After I made the walls as thin as I wanted, I just took a hammer and gently knocked off the pine pieces and sanded a lot by hand. Finish is simply three coats of minwax polycrylic. I have to thank TOM aka Smokey for the use of his joiner. I really appreciate it Tom. Keith, I hope you like it. <br /><br />9 comments http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=431&title=square-turning-challenge-project&cat=511 http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=431&title=square-turning-challenge-project&cat=511 Fri, 18 Mar 2005 13:26:44 +0000 Square_Turning <a href="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=430&amp;title=square-turning&amp;cat=511"><img class="imgborder" title="13Square_Turning.JPG" border="0" src="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/data/511/thumbs/13Square_Turning.JPG" alt="13Square_Turning.JPG" /></a><br /><br />by: keith bundy<br /><br />Description}: I chose to a square turning. It"s a little smaller than the 4x3x3 but I didn't have anything else that I felt would work. This is made from Ash. Not the best for square turning as I found out as the coarse grain tends to chip out, but I managed to make it work. I think I am going to have to continue with this. <br /><br />15 comments http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=430&title=square-turning&cat=511 http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=430&title=square-turning&cat=511 Fri, 18 Mar 2005 11:21:44 +0000 Carob square edge bowl <a href="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=429&amp;title=carob-square-edge-bowl&amp;cat=511"><img class="imgborder" title="2Carob_square_edged_bowl.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/data/511/thumbs/2Carob_square_edged_bowl.jpg" alt="2Carob_square_edged_bowl.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: Chris Wright<br /><br />Description}: This is Carob, square edge &amp; off center. Within 1 mm of exactly 4&quot; tall x 4&quot; square. The wall thickness is 3/32&quot; for both the bowl and the wings. Sanded to 400 and finished with walnut oil. I still have some sanding to do on the wings, but the bowl is complete. I found that one of the most important parts is to get the diameter nearest the wings consistent on both sides before proceeding to the rest of the form. Like most other turnings, a slight gradual curve was more pleasing to the eye than having a straight side (I tried straight first). I also learned what everyone has told me about doing these...keep your fingers clear, those wings sure hurt when they hit your thumb!<br /><br />16 comments http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=429&title=carob-square-edge-bowl&cat=511 http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=429&title=carob-square-edge-bowl&cat=511 Fri, 18 Mar 2005 08:17:54 +0000
