handmadewoodgifts Finally had a reason to use my grandpa's old radius templates that he used as a pattern maker 50 some years ago to figure out the radius of this corner and so I could match it to the bottom panel. Hand made mahogany holder too. Hope I'm doing him proud.

handmadewoodgifts Found some maple burl pieces from when we moved about 18 months ago. One is 8" by 2" and the other 5" by 3" with some excellent eyes and swirls.

handmadewoodgifts Here's another bowl I made, from the core of the one I posted a few weeks ago. It is a unique live edge bowl turned out of a wood known as Panama Rosewood (Dalbergia Tucurensis). The heart wood is a light brown in color, almost pinkish, with a pale yellow sap wood around the perimeter. There is some checking and cracks through the sap wood which add character to the rustic live edge look.

The overall size is about 6.25” in diameter with an overall height of 1.25”-2” depending on the height of the live edge where you measure. The bowl is finished with a food safe combination of walnut oil, shellac, and wax. A truly unique piece of table art.

It will be on etsy soon... Or message me if you want it, $40+shipping

handmadewoodgifts Trying to figure out if this place is really good at 15 minute oil changes or bad at 10 minute oil changes.... "Damnit Carl! It took 660 seconds again. Now we have to change the sign"

handmadewoodgifts I had a dream the other day that I landed a woodworking job that paid $855,000.... Since that dream hasn't come true yet, how about we start with this 9" live edge bowl. Now for sale on etsy: https://www.etsy.com/listing/264517508/live-edge-panama-rosewood-bowl

handmadewoodgifts Someone help me find my lathe under here! Turning wet wood with my new 3/4" bowl gouge sure is fun but those shavings pile up fast.

handmadewoodgifts I had to dump out two 55 gallon cans of shavings in the backyard in 12 degree weather. Need to do it before the snow really gets here. It's a long walk way back there.

handmadewoodgifts More coring... 3 bowls this time. This wood is still really wet so it will be a while before I can complete these bowls. Trying to get good at this coring thing for the really nice woods that I have waiting.

handmadewoodgifts Got a chance to try out my new bowl corer. It tested the limits of my lathes horse power, but got there eventually. I'll need to practice on some more "regular" wood before I try this on the fancy stuff.

  •   bigashbowls Congratulations. You'll get better and faster as you do more. Keep the cutters sharp and use the jig to sharpen. 1mon
  •   handmadewoodgifts @bigashbowls it look a while to get that last one. Made my lathe real warm and I stalled it out a few times too. Wish I had 3hp! 1mon

handmadewoodgifts Goals for 2016: make more bowls. Just got this coring system, hope to be able to reduce some waste by saving the inside of bowls instead of turning in into shavings.
Happy new year! #happynewyear #bowlturning #woodworking #woodturning #oneway #tools

handmadewoodgifts I was thinking about making a reclaimed oak barrel coffee table... But maybe I'll do one of these instead.
