An End-grain Spalted Bowl

  • I turn a bowl from a very spalted piece of log cut-off. The wood is very soft and doesn't turn well. On top of that, I make a bit of a mess of the finishing. Other than that, everything's good.

    yep, it was gorgeous natural. You could sand that terrible dye off, down to fresh wood and put it in wood hardener in a vacuum and then turn it. No more tarring grain and with epoxy finish You wont get one bad comment. Spalted woods should always be natural in my opinion. thanks for your time

    Pretty funny....
    First he covers up that beautiful grain with red gunk and then he saws off the base...
    But if you're making a spalted bowl to hold spalted nuts, oh well...
    You can't very well use tung oil...that's against FDA regulations...

      I like red dye on spalted wood - this one had a lot of white rot. A lot of people don’t like the red dye however. You can use tung oil, as long as it’s pure tung oil, and not one of the tung oil products that have additives. Thanks for watching, Leon.

    Initially, I agreed with the other folks about the dye BUT that being said, I wasn't there to see the torn grain. It didn't look too bad on camera, but often the camera hides imperfections we'd see if we were there in person. You are a great craftsman and you would know. You said the wood was soft. Was it porous enough to allow a very thin resin to soak in?

    • RickTurns

    well Rick, I don't like your dye buddy it had a beautiful spalting that you completely spoilt. Incidentally if you had put on several coats of sanding sealer you would filled a lot of those awful voids, I know this from experience with spalted pine which has the same problems with tear out

    • RickTurns
      RickTurns  19 дней назад

      Once I had the tear out, I don’t see how a few coats of a sanding could fill the voids...they were pretty deep. I like red dye on spalted wood myself. The spalting still shows through. A number of people agree with you, however. Thanks for watching, Ron.

    Spalted wood should never be died unless it's a light color that lets the spalting show through. That dark of a red just makes it look like a badly applied stain. Would've been better if it stayed natural looking with a wax/oil finish.

    Screws into end grain without the tail stock being brought in as dangerous and should not be copied, I could not watch any more than the first little bit as the thoughts on safety were obviously not thought about and no mention of safety other than the original turn on speed. Beginners to woodturning please do not watch videos like this and then have a go as you will not kno what bad practice you are copying go and get some lessons from someone who knows what they are doing.

      +RickTurns good morning Rick. I use deft lacquer, but I don't think brand matters. There are a couple of ways to go. Try mixing some oil (I prefer walnut, but any oil will do) and lacquer. Start with 1 part oil to 4 parts lacquer then adjust to how you like the feel as you apply while turning. The other method I like is to apply lacquer to the work then with oil on a rag wipe while turning. The oil serves as a lubricant. Let me know if you like it.

      I had that Galaxi on loan from Teknatool for about six months, for the purpose of doing a video review. However, I ran into a few major problems with it, and a number of minor problems, so in the end, I declined to do the review. There was a lot I liked about it, but the various problems made me hesitant to recommend it to anyone. I hope you're having better luck with it than I did.
      I do indeed do some shear scraping with the bowl gouge. Overall, however, I prefer to use my dedicated negative-rake shear scraper tool. Here's a link to my video on that:

      That is a weird effect, isn't it. That is the morph effect in Adobe Premiere Pro, the video editing software that I use. The morph effect attempts to smooth together two video clips by creating similar frames between the two. In this case, the first clip had my hand in one position and the second clip had my hand in a different position. I didn't like the sudden jump in position, so I used the morph effect. I don't use it anymore, because it does frequently result in that weird creeping picture. Thanks for watching, Jordon.

    Rick, while I don't turn, CPES would stabilize this level of spalting and even the rotted areas. The epoxy would have allowed a rigid blank in my experience- not that its an inexpensive material. I've tapped rotted wood and used bolts directly into the rot- after soaking with "enough" CPES- but it wasn't a low cost solution!
    I don't care for the red dye on the nearly perfect maple spalt lines, but that's just taste. CPES would have made a more successful bowl in my view.

      I had the DVR on load from Teknatool to do a video review. After 5-6 months, I had run into a number of problems, both large and small, and declined to do the review. I returned it to them. When I first got it, the headstock would start screeching above 1000 rpm. They shipped another to me. Next, the tailstock quill was binding to the point where I could not move it in and out. They shipped another. Those were the two biggest issues. I also had a problem with the tightening levers on the banjo. Sounds like you're doing better with it than I was.

    I know you're probably tired of hearing this, but I have to put my two cents in the pot. I had much higher hopes for your bowl than what you ended up with. Now, decidedly I'm not there to inspect the wood first hand and therefore not able to give a fully informed assessment of your work, but imho, I feel you're blaming the condition of the wood for being more of the problem than it was. Thruthfully, this is one turn I think I'd kept to myself. Not going to lie, I've fubared my fair share of projects over the years also. As the saying goes, "we live we learn, everything else gets run thru the chipper". Keep turning away, I enjoy your work. Well, most of it anyway. 👍☺

    I know I could make a lot of negative comments here (and it would be the first time ever)... as I too was watching nervously for you - but an internal tool rest would really help or a parting tool (not a saw) or not screwing into your end grain but I do screw into end grain on Monkey Puzzle and have fabulous finishes, so....I share your opinions on the end bowl - its a learning curve and have also turned spalted bowls that are just too light weight when you lift them to know its shot... rotten, but its always good to watch some one else turn wood you learn something new every day... and even I don't use a polished wheel or own a powermatic (and would love too) - keep it up!

    I found a large piece of spalted wood , that had markings like the piece you used . I would never have used dye on it . you could not improve on what nature had formed . I think you wasted a beautiful piece of wood . I managed a smooth finish by a lot of sanding .

      It was torn so much on the inside that I doubt I could have sanded it away. I like the red dyed look myself. The spalting still shows through. Thanks for watching.

      I have seen turners use a saw with the lathe stationary, but I’ve never seen anyone do it with the lathe running. Sounds a little on the risky side. I always use a parting tool with the lathe running.

    I think I saw another turner deal with rough/soft grain by putting on a temporary CA glue finish, which seeped in and was then scraped away (at least for the most part). I don't know if that could have been useful here (I have a micro lathe that turns objects up to 2 inches in diameter, and mostly turn acrylic or resin, so I can't speak for personal experience).
    Loving your channel by the way.
    Cheers

    • RickTurns

      Thanks for watching. I’ve used diluted shellac before to try to avoid torn grain. CA glue would work well too, I’m sure. On this bowl, I think it would have required an awful lot of CA. I have a friend who was working with a piece of the same log, and he managed to do it with no torn grain at all...I’m jealous, to say the least!

    Oração do Pai Nosso
    Pai nosso que estás nos céus, santificado seja o Vosso nome.
    Venha a nós o Vosso Reino.
    Seja feita a Vossa vontade, assim na Terra como no Céu.
    O pão nosso de cada dia nos dai hoje.
    Perdoai as nossas ofensas assim como nós perdoamos a quem nos tem ofendido.
    E não nos deixeis cair em tentação, mas livrai-nos do mal.
    Vosso é o reino o poder e a glória para sempre amém.

      I understand that there are some solutions available which will soak into and harden wood, and that should make it turn with less tearout. I haven’t tried anything like that though.

    • RickTurns
      RickTurns  Год назад

      Use green wood! It would also help to turn with the pith off-center, and turn fairly thin. It will warp as it dries, but if it's thin , there's less chance of serious splitting.

  • Daniel Vilarino

    Hi Rick! Those woods are beautiful my friend, but the spalting is always troublesome and will certainly produce torn grain. You may try next time to stabilize it using CA glue in the softer areas, then light sand and repeat until you get a smooth surface. It certainly will be a lot of work but it will eliminate the torn grain. For this type of bowl you will have to apply the CA evenly in all the surface, since it will typically stain a bit. It is better to use thin or very thin CA first so it will penetrate well the fibers and harden them and then you can use medium or thick to fill in the pores. All in all, I like the result of your bowl with the coloring and all. Cheers! Daniel
