    This is what I typically do as well - before I had the vacuum chuck, I saved the inner core from a cored piece of wood (about 7-8" in diameter) and made a recess to fit my jaws as a jam chuck that I...

    I don’t think size matters so much, more just getting comfortable with it. I started out primarily using a 1 1/4” but over the last couple years have gravitated to a much smaller 1/2”. They both...

    I agree with this to some extent (and certainly respect your experience as I’ve only been turning a few years). That being said, I recently started using a detail gouge with a 35 degree bevel...

    FWIW I learned the skew before ever purchasing a spindle gouge and when I finally did, I thought the spindle gouge was way harder to learn. I was taking my first in-person class at the time and the...

    Thanks, I’ll have to look into this. My main frustration is that this is a brand new bottle. If I’d had it on the shelf for 2+ years I’d be more forgiving.

    Don't want to hijack this thread but I’d love to see some examples of what the scaler can do. Sounds intriguing.

    It looks like an end-grain bowl to me. While it can be done and can look amazing (often done with Norfolk Island Pine to display the regular branching pattern), it is often not advisable as the pith...

    I moved to Utah 3 years ago from Illinois, and was sad to leave so much walnut, cherry and maple. Now cottonwood and elm are the most available woods where I live. But honestly, I've been...

    Thanks for all the responses. I had bought 2 bottles using an expiring gift card and I tried the other bottle on another cottonwood bowl from the same tree. Within 2 days it is now completely dry to...

    I saturated the bowl pretty heavily after sanding and then after 15-30 minutes added oil to the endgrain where it had sucked it all in (I was following the craft supplies youtube video instructions)....

    Mahoney’s walnut oil question

    Cottonwood bowls

    I just cored and finish turned some partially dry cottonwood that was cut into half logs and sealed in October. The largest bowl is 15 x 5.5” and will be gifted to a neighbor for a popcorn bowl. ...

    Thanks, that makes sense.

    I’m just south of Provo - just moved here from Chicago a couple years ago. A lot less hardwoods here in the desert compared to the Midwest, though our monthly turners...

    I like it a lot. How did you turn the maple? Did you just cut portions from a larger bowl? I’ve never tried anything like that but looks fun.

    Thanks for the replies. Doesn’t it take weeks to months for DO to fully cure? Or would waiting a couple days for the outer layer to cure be enough?

  23. Can you use sanding sealer over an oil finish?

    I like it as well, and in my limited experience selling and gifting bowls, the live edge ones went the fastest. Nice job keeping the bark intact. Without holding it, it’s hard to tell but sounds...
