  • Segmented Bowl From Lathe

    I did this 6" dia bowl from Walnut & Spaulted Sycamore for my lady to put her M&M's in.
    First time doing a segmented bowl on a lathe.

    Nice bowl! I like the wood combination, shape and size. Is that your own design?

          Very nice. I am seriously thinking of getting a lathe. Harbor Freight has one for sale for $119 Benchtop Wood Lathe - 8" x 12". Would I be able to turn small bowls on that? How much would the other accessories I would need cost?

            B. Look around some. I paid about that for my 48"x14".
            if you find you really like turning you'll be all set. Bigger can go smaller but smaller can't go bigger

              This is the same lathe I have just a little smaller. With little to no dollars and a little angle iron and it can be any size you like. I've even thought to make the power head removable so it can be mounted on the edge of a bench so large pieces can be spun. Look around theres tons of stuff out there

                  That is a nice design the wood choice looks great. What wood did you use? and the finish looks very nice, what did you use?
                  Did you sign and date it?
                  Turning is a nice break from scrolling.

                  Bstark I agree with Oily, I would look around for a good used lathe. For tools like that I don't think HF is a good choice. Regarding cost, unlike scrolling you can sink a lot of money into tools, chucks and gadgets for turning.

                      Using Corel Draw a 10 inch round acrylic jigsaw puzzle was created. It was the cut on an Epilog Laser. Two passes were used to cut thru 1/4 acrylic so as not to melt the plastic. Only one person has put it together so far. It is about 475 pieces. But would really like to try and cut one by...

                      As far as the Incra miter gauge, if you keep it 1/4 inch away you will be fine, but you will have to adjust it when doing angle cuts, it’s a great miter gauge, RJ...

                      Curiosity regarding farmers markets.
                      I have only looked into a few, and I know that each one has different requirements.
                      For those of you who do them, what are 'typical' requirements for yours?

                      Truly a nice display. I'm happy for you! Our nearest 2 farmers markets are still food items only as county and city covid rules are still being applied. Our best nearby one is on county parks department property and they haven't lifted essential business and crowd restrictions yet. But the food...
