Woodturning - The Emerging Man

  • Published on Sep 14, 2018
  • Turning a bowl/platter from a gnarly slice of Horse Chestnut burl ..I was really close to giving up with this piece it had voids which I filled with epoxy and antique gold pearl ex and some real punky wood which I soaked in ca glue to try and stop it disintegrating ..It may still be a little punky but the emerging figure that's trying to get out of the bowl makes me glad I persevered with it ..

    That ended up looking superb, when you started out with such a thin piece as this one was I thought you were creating a plate of some kind, but the final product is excellent, good video.

    When started cutting the first circle and all the “interesting” bark edges were cut off my heart screamed “NOOOOOOOO! 😱😱😱😱. Oh me of little faith 🥵 As usual you uncovered the hidden beauties of the wood. You ARE the master.👏👏👏👏👏👍👍👍.

    I was in middle school back in the 70's when I first used a lathe. It is one one the most satisfying power tools a wood worker can use. I have watched many of your videos and am amazed with the creation that you have made. Well done!!!!!

    I like that you slowed the video to real time so us non-lathe workers could hear what you hear, especially when it was still heavy to one side in the beginning. I'm so used to watching Nick Zammetti that the lack of music and talking it was a "little weird" at first haha!

    You need to use a better way to patch those weak areas. A very thin layer of clear resin on the entire side would probably make it look beautiful.

    Looks great! I just turned my first bowl the other day and used spalted maple. It has a couple of punky areas on it. Glad I watched your video. I may try some CA glue and epoxy to get it cleaned up. What did you spray on yours at the end?

    • Tom Cowsert

    Forgive my ignorance, I am new to turning, but why would you hold your gouge sideways like that?

    • Ima Pseudonym
      Ima Pseudonym 9 months ago

      I have a bowl gouge, but I just can't get the thing to work right for me, I'll try using it sideways and see if that helps!

    • Andy Phillip
      Andy Phillip  9 months ago +1

      You get a better/cleaner cut rather than just using the nose of the gouge. ..

      Six Eight Toast 9 months ago

      Thank you for the info. I watched the unboxing of the new lathe you have, so I browsed the website. The hobby one is perfect for what I am planning on turning. I appreciate the info and the videos, brother. Thanks again.

    • Andy Phillip
      Andy Phillip  9 months ago +2

      I'm no lathe expert but I suppose it depends on what your planning to turn ..I started on a small Axminster hobby lathe and when I out grew it upgraded to the Axminster 1628 vs which is great for what I do .. I would definitely go for a variable speed though .. cheers Andy

    Andy you're a craftsman. What you do with these burrs is brilliant, I love to see the dig out of the rot and the transformation with the added epoxy. I'm starting my woodturning course on Wednesday and I'm itching to have a go with burrs, they have such a lot of character. Thanks again for sharing your inspirational videos 😊 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟

      Обычно, вроде бы, когда есть откровенно гнилые части, то их сначала убирают, хорошо так, с запасом, что бы только нормальное осталось. Потом заливают эпоксидкой. Потом только точат. Почему тут наоборот? Это и для меня загадка.
