  • Two scrolled bowls finished on the lathe

    Here are two new 10 inch diameter bowls made from maple. Cut out the rings, glued them together, and finished them on the lathe. Second bowl, I made up two bowls the exact size, and swapped the rings around.

    Finish is USP grade mineral oil and beeswax.

    If you can't fix it with sawdust and glue, it's not worth fixing.

            Very nice SQ....I have been reading of others that are doing the sanding on the lathe. Not having a lathe around, I will have to stick to the original way.

                Carole, thanks for the very kind words. I love making these scrolled bowls, and it's all your fault.

                  Thanks everyone for all the nice comments.

                  Larry, I first smooth the bowl out with the different turning tools and then once it's as smooth as I can get it, I sand it while still on the lathe. Nothing wrong with sanding the original way. It works equally well.

                    Do you find it takes less time to round out the bowls using the lathe? Once again another reason I should have held onto the lathe I had..

                      It has saved me lots of time. I am still scrolling the bowls like I learned from Carole's book and gluing up the rings. I start on the outside of the bowl and clean up the layers then move into the interior of the bowl and do the same thing with the different turning tools. The basic shape is there, I'm just taking off all the rough edges. Then I sand it with a Grex 2 inch air sander. The resulting symmetry is what I was after and I'm very pleased with the results.

                      But don't jump into a lathe without instruction. How you hold the turning tools and where you place them on a turning vessel are rules one must follow to turn anything safely.

                        Very nice bowls Sussie.When you ,first, tell me about finishing on the lathe I was thinking at some considerable change on outside shape of the bowls .I think so this is possible if the rings are thicker in diameter.Why not ? some flower vases could be done this way ,with some PVC pipe ,or jarr,or cutted bottle inlay for water proofing.

                            The bowels look extremely well done. I like them !

                            For a 10" bowl are you using 10" wide boards for the largest ring ? Or are you edge gluing narrow boards to get the 10" width ?

                              Epson,

                              Thank you! It is so good to hear form you! Hope the family is doing well. Outside edge could be shaped in many different ways and I agree thicker rings would help make that possible.

                                What Carole said. The lips are 1 1/2”, holds the board to the counter and keeps the flour from going off the back. After gluing them to the board, he drilled stainless screws through the lip into the board and made plugs to fill the holes. The board is 3/4” thick. Since he only has 4 large Bessy...

                                I remember Russel well. I think he went back to the days of Free4all.

                                FYI: I just completed an index of the Charity Ornament book from SSV and Birchbank designed quite a few ornaments.

                                Denny, you are correct, his name is Russell. While he may not have been here in years, he pops in at the Village forum from time to time. I just checked and he hasn’t been there since July. I would suggest that you send him a PM perhaps through the Village and see if you get a response.

                                I think his name is Russel. I checked and he was last on the forum in 2014. I had a request for one of his patterns. Fortunately I still had a copy. Anyone heard from him?
