You've learned the skill of wood turning pretty quick Arky...excellent!! Now just hone your skills and you can make good money making larger bowls, wood tobacco storage humidors and fancy vases. Remember, it's all about fun and enjoying this wonderful craft.



KEEP ON PUFFING!!!

Looking good there Travis!

I can't speak of what it's like to turn, but black walnut feels lovely in the hand as a canoe paddle, my favourite being an otter tail. They fetch a good price too...

That must've been one helluva blank he used! Thought it was a photoshop job.

Shocked

I think the blank was a construct made from lots of individual pieces glued into a stacked dished out shape. This shows a forklift putting the 13í Spruce starting blank onto the tractor axle...

I see, said the blind man! And here I thought it was from some huge chunk of old growth at the base. But on reflection if it were that, the colour would be much darker with growth rings.

Still, that's quite the undertaking!
