I had two laminates made up (can't remember what they were originally for), so I cut them on diaginal, reguled them and then squared them. I also had the mechanisms laying around for the last year and never had gotten too them. 7 inches by 2 inchs. Laminate of maple, cherry and one of the mahogony like woods. Finished with one coat of salad bowl finish and buffed with wax. This was a major learning experience. <br /><br />3 comments http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=3644&title=first-salt-pepper-mills&cat=500 http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=3644&title=first-salt-pepper-mills&cat=500 Sat, 25 Nov 2006 20:27:00 +0000 That time again <a href="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=3611&amp;title=that-time-again&amp;cat=500"><img class="imgborder" title="8christmas_06_teachers_pens.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/data/500/thumbs/8christmas_06_teachers_pens.jpg" alt="8christmas_06_teachers_pens.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: nappen<br /><br />Description}: Here is the pack of pens for the kids teachers.

Anyway...the goblet is laminated Maple, Walnut and Cherry. It stands exactly 6 inches tall by caliper. Bowl is 2.5 inches in diameter. Stem is well; it depends on where you say it starts. The thin part is 3 inches, but with the beads etc it is somewhere between 3.5 and 4.5. Diameter is just under ? inch. I didn?t have the time for another go, so didn?t push it and it was already giving a good bit of whip. And, the 5 captive rings were annoying the snot out of me while trying to turn the stem and were just trying to make me slip up with the gouge. This picture is before the first coat of finish. I knew it wouldn?t be dry for a picture. <br /><br />13 comments http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=2251&title=three-wood-goblet&cat=526 http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=2251&title=three-wood-goblet&cat=526 Mon, 24 Apr 2006 00:56:27 +0000 charity bottow <a href="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=1938&amp;title=charity-bottow&amp;cat=500"><img class="imgborder" title="8charity_bottom.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/data/500/thumbs/8charity_bottom.jpg" alt="8charity_bottom.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: nappen<br /><br />Description}: The bottoms of the bowls for the auction. http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=1938&title=charity-bottow&cat=500 http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=1938&title=charity-bottow&cat=500 Sun, 05 Mar 2006 18:26:00 +0000 Charity bowls <a href="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=1937&amp;title=charity-bowls&amp;cat=500"><img class="imgborder" title="8charity_bowls.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/data/500/thumbs/8charity_bowls.jpg" alt="8charity_bowls.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: nappen<br /><br />Description}: Two walnut bowls that go to the same auction as the bottle stopper.

Made of cherry, walnut and maple. The pens demonstrate the effect. It is 4X4. Plan is to sand and finish with salad bowl oil. Appologies for the picture quality, life getting in the way again :)<br /><br />8 comments http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=1859&title=not-finished&cat=524 http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=1859&title=not-finished&cat=524 Wed, 15 Feb 2006 22:38:11 +0000 Ebony perfume <a href="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=1513&amp;title=ebony-perfume&amp;cat=500"><img class="imgborder" title="8ebony_perfume.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/data/500/thumbs/8ebony_perfume.jpg" alt="8ebony_perfume.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: nappen<br /><br />Description}: This is a small perfume vial.

I almost through it out because of all the piths and the inclusions. When I tried to core some smaller bowls, they just broke in half because of the inclusion that ran through the middle. I ended up with this, and tossed it on my pile of drying bowls and forgot about it...giving it up for sure to split and crack. Shape was pretty much detiremined by the voids and cracks in the original peice. pulled it out last week and finish turned it. Finished it with oil and buffed it today. 11 X 4 inches.<br /><br />7 comments http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=1421&title=walnut-with-inclusion&cat=500 http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=1421&title=walnut-with-inclusion&cat=500 Wed, 30 Nov 2005 20:01:53 +0000 3 small bowls <a href="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=1420&amp;title=3-small-bowls&amp;cat=500"><img class="imgborder" title="8AGF00015.JPG" border="0" src="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/data/500/thumbs/8AGF00015.JPG" alt="8AGF00015.JPG" /></a><br /><br />by: nappen<br /><br />Description}: black gum and walnut.

It had a long strait side, don't know why I decided to add a curve. Pretty wood though. Not finished, still on tenon. Has one coat of oil, once I get another couple of coats I will turn the bottom. Don't usually finish it this way, just turn it all then wipe on oil, but thought I would try something new.<br /><br />6 comments http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=1376&title=walnut-bow&cat=500 http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=1376&title=walnut-bow&cat=500 Tue, 22 Nov 2005 21:08:57 +0000 maple bowl <a href="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=1369&amp;title=maple-bowl&amp;cat=500"><img class="imgborder" title="8maple_bowl.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/data/500/thumbs/8maple_bowl.jpg" alt="8maple_bowl.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: nappen<br /><br />Description}: 6 X 2, finished with salad bowl oil.

The right is purpleheart and maple 3.5 X 4. The other is ?wood and maple 4 X 3.5. I have really taken to the &quot;ripple&quot; on the top. I tried a little different shape with each. I think the one Phil got came out nicer than these. Finished with sanding sealer and friction polish. The bottom photo &quot;squished&quot; some when I shrank it, kind of like one of those trick mirrors.<br /><br />7 comments http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=1022&title=two-more-boxes&cat=500 http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=1022&title=two-more-boxes&cat=500 Mon, 05 Sep 2005 18:04:32 +0000 Another view <a href="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=1007&amp;title=another-view&amp;cat=500"><img class="imgborder" title="8ornament_2.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/data/500/thumbs/8ornament_2.jpg" alt="8ornament_2.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: nappen<br /><br />Description}: Just wanted a shot of the bloodwood design.

Sanded, three coats of danis oil. My kitchen light and flash played havoc with the picture. Interesting thing is how much darker the maple plugs got. I assume it is because it is endgrain and picked up more oil. It took a LONGGGGGG time to get the glue out from between the segments. Big lesson learned there I assure you.<br /><br />5 comments http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=996&title=finished&cat=514 http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=996&title=finished&cat=514 Sun, 28 Aug 2005 20:55:14 +0000 Not finished yet <a href="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=783&amp;title=not-finished-yet&amp;cat=514"><img class="imgborder" title="8plate_1.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/data/514/thumbs/8plate_1.jpg" alt="8plate_1.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: nappen<br /><br />Description}: Bubinga and maple. 8 x 1 1/2 (oops got bigger than I thought). The rim has 3/8th inch maple &quot;dots&quot; I was originally going to burn in trails behind the dots to the bubinga &quot;swirls&quot; for a comet tail like effect, thinking it would extend the swirls out onto the rim, but took it under the advisment of several people that the simple look of this was better, and I must agree. Of course, the dots were set along the line of the maple swirl in order to accept that effect...that is why they are not in the middle of the segments. It still needs a good bit of sanding, as well as clean up between the segments and there is no finish on it at this point.<br /><br />11 comments http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=783&title=not-finished-yet&cat=514 http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=783&title=not-finished-yet&cat=514 Mon, 20 Jun 2005 15:37:35 +0000 Second Try <a href="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=723&amp;title=second-try&amp;cat=500"><img class="imgborder" title="8Image07.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/data/500/thumbs/8Image07.jpg" alt="8Image07.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: nappen<br /><br />Description}: This is similiar to my oops pen.

Held on by gravity (or perhaps you could say illusion). The top does work. I will add full discription later...have to go to work. It is made from figured maple,lepardwood (I think), a walnut veneer, purpleheart veneer and a walnut top. The top section was gently depressed to accept the bottom of the top so it would sit flush. Prior to attachment to the main body it was hollowed on the inside to match the inside of the vessel. My intention was to give the illusion that the top was a finial that you would use to open the lid (top laminate) but get a suprise when the &quot;top&quot; came off. Inside is finished with danish oil. The outside is finished with sealer and buffed with carnuba wax. Top was sealed, then buffed.<br /><br />11 comments http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=581&title=quot-walnut-top-quot-vessel&cat=513 http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=581&title=quot-walnut-top-quot-vessel&cat=513 Sun, 08 May 2005 10:06:03 +0000 challenge project <a href="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=437&amp;title=challenge-project&amp;cat=500"><img class="imgborder" title="8colage.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/data/500/thumbs/8colage.jpg" alt="8colage.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: nappen<br /><br />Description}: My project: Happy and sad (or alternatively Comedy and Tragedy) Six alternating maple and ? wood found in a cut off bin. I will post a pic of some if anyone can identify it. Measures 4 inches tall by 3.25 inches wide. The rings consist of six pieces each. They were glued up and a mistake ring was used between rings 4 and 5 to make the lip for the lid so that no height would be lost between segments. What makes this new: It is my first lidded box. While it is my third segmented piece, it is the first that I actually planned and didn't just throw together from scraps. It is also the first time I made rings (for the top and bottom) that form a completely closed disc. It was the first time I used deft on a turning. Why the name: Two reasons. First, purely out of coincidence, the grain markings on two maple wedges in the third ring that just happen to be dead opposite each other have the appearance of a smile on one and a frown on the other. I could not have planned that! It also fits my turning of this, ecstatic one moment at some new accomplishment and then depressed the next when I screwed it up. Things I learned: 1) I don't like deft on turnings, or at least not this one. There were no drips, but I could feel the roughness, and after using steel wool I just didn't like it, so buffed it off. Which leads to the next lesson, deft is a pain to remove. 2) There are screws at the bottom of the waste block, so it isn't a good idea to use that part for a jam chuck! 3) Chris's method of turning the lip for the top works really well, however 4) Deft on the lip makes the top really tight 5) Buffing the lip does affect the fit. It had a great fit with a nice pop until I accidentally defted it and then had to buff it. It still fits really well, but not as good as I would like. 6) Your dog and kids sneaking up on you while at the lathe is a bad thing. 7) Tight bond II is really good glue. I accidentally glued a ring on in the wrong alignment and had to band saw it off. On a good note, it gave me a waste ring to make the lip for the lid out of. I will not routinely do that with any segmented box I do in the future. 8) A waste block on the top and bottom of this kind of turning works well and give a place for the tailstock to hold without digging into the segmented work. 9) Finish the top before parting off the last of the wasteblock. I should have paid better attention to Chris's boxturning instructions. <br /><br />13 comments http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=437&title=challenge-project&cat=500 http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=437&title=challenge-project&cat=500 Fri, 18 Mar 2005 20:09:30 +0000 Fun with scraps <a href="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=380&amp;title=fun-with-scraps&amp;cat=500"><img class="imgborder" title="8ring_holdersresize.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/data/500/thumbs/8ring_holdersresize.jpg" alt="8ring_holdersresize.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: nappen<br /><br />Description}: I read about these in a magazine, looked like something fun to do with scraps.
