Woodturning - The 'Continental' Vessel

  • Published on Jun 19, 2018
  • My etsy www.etsy.com/shop/TAGwoodworking?ref=seller-platform-mcnav
    The vessel has been sold. For interest in this particular design: info@tagwoodworking.com
    This project was made possible, thanks to the 2 species of wood supplied in an exchange project between 3 woodworkers in Portland Oregon, U.S and 3 woodworkers in Utrecht The Netherlands. utrecht-portland.com/ The idea for all involved was to make an object with slabs of 2 species. Oregonian Myrtle wood and local harvested Maple combined. The largest part of inspiration comes from the native tribes in Oregon,and by looking at some old symbols the tribes use(d).
    The name 'continental' was inspired by the project itself, and the lines and colors in the wood used.Which i found looking like a map.
    The stopper was inspired by where the maple came from, a tree on a childrens playground in Utrecht. It also resembles the merging of the 2 species for me. The Process - this wasMy more a project that evolved slowly, as i went along. The basic idea i had was to make something tribal. I really enjoy this type of process, letting your thoughts and choices at each particular stage decide the final outcome. Without forcing yourself to stick to pre-made drawings/designs.

    look why doesn't anyone 1 dry their wood in a kiln instead they leave it lying around or even outside where it fluctuates between wet and dry..sure the mealy wood accepts stain better but back in the day [ when people used wooden bowls ] there was an art to doing it right not merely for decoration...and they were truly beautiful...

    You’ve all been lied to about everything Research “200 proofs” also Fluoride is a poison but everyone thinks it’s good for them, it’s actually a mining waste.
    Research “Geo Engineering” which is basically chemtrails but renamed. They spray the sky and poison the water to dumb us down and stop us from reaching our full potential
    They aren’t human either they are an Evil race of beings called Reptilians research “The Matrix Reptilian Neo” for more proof.
    Research all conspiracy theories.
    Please wake up and spread the word and do your own research, stop believing others.

    Amazing workmanship and design. It's not my "cup-of-tea", but, it is a beautiful art piece made with love and a lot of thought. (Unlike other people, I don't insult other people's work just because I don't like it or wouldn't have done it that way. It isn't necessary and is extremely inconsiderate.)

    I understand letting the project evolve rather than planning. I make pens and people always ask me how I came to the finished shape. My answer is always the same, the wood and the pen type dictate it. I always look at the grain and colour to give me an initial thought, but, often, as the exposed grain changes while turning, that initial shape changes and I end up with something altogether different. Even while looking at wood at a local hardwood speciality store, I either see a pen in the board or it goes back. Sometimes the ugliest piece of wood makes the most beautiful and unique pen. I have had certain pen blanks for months before I "see" the pen it is intended for.

    To paraphrase something that has been quoted as being said by many artists, "I didn't make the pen, it was always there, I just take away what isn't a pen." 😀

    What can be said i watched every minute from beginning to end brillient. There are some wonderful turners on here but in a competative way you beat them all and i know it wasnt a competition but your design and hand skills are brilliant. Also and very very important you allowed us to enjoy the whole journey without having to put the video on mute all of the gentle music was appropriate, once again thank you for this marvellous experience.

At every step, i was left wondering, "Wow, what is he doing NOW? What could he possibly do to top that last step?" And then you did. I lack the vocabulary to adequately describe my awe. Thank you for making this, and for posting the video.
