Wood Turning

Natural Edge Maple Bowl

This is a natural edge made from maple. This was turned while the wood was still green and was then placed in a brown paper sack with the shavings from the piece to dry over a few weeks. This is a great method to use to help prevent cracking and splitting when turning green wood. I used the Easy Wood Tool to make this 7 inches in diameter bowl from a piece of maple a received from a friend who had a tree fall last winter.

This is the first Easy Wood Tool I have used and am very pleased with the results.This is their finishing tool with the round carbid cutter. I think this tool would be a great addition to any woodturners arsenal.


Magic Wand

Spindle turnings is an essential part of woodturning. A magic wand for a magic or Harry Potter fan is a great place to use the skew chisel in practicing to mast this tool. Most new woodturners shy away from a skew chisel, but with practice it becomes a go to tool for spindle turning.
