Default The spiraled pen temple

I love to play with the Sorby spiraling tool. So I made some spiral pens. Then I thought a spiral stand that could fit a spiral pen would be spirally nice. Maybe I overspiraled?



That was my entry for the 2019 bash contest.

I agree with the guy above me. You’ve mastered that tool.

I loved the pen stand, one of the best ever posted, but thought it looked a bit like an experiment in technique as the spindles were different. Nothing wrong with that, just an observation.

BUt now that you have posted pictures of the three pens - WOW, those are wonderful. Very nice.

I have seen the spiraling tool in use at a Sorby demo at a local Woodcraft; tricky but eventually a nice element.

But, I did not expect the indents to be as severe (deep) as with your pens. I really like those. I expected it to be more of a texturing tool than a shaping tool. If I am mis-interpreting, let us know.

Thanks for the view of the pens. Well done.

Sort of. In fact, I went to Venice just before making the stand and I was impressed by the liberty of their architects, nothing like the Greek or Roman "orders", well named. So instead of following rules, I just had fun making every part different.

It only scratches at the beginning. But if you spend sufficient time, it shapes, I mean the indents go deeper and deeper into the wood and eventually they work the whole visible surface. You can even make diamonds.

Thanks for the additional information, this is intriguing. Very nice.

Very nice! I have a Sorby texturing/spiraling tool and I can say from experience that you have your technique down, I hope I can get as good as you at it. Beautiful work there.
