Thanks everyone! These were quick and easy.
While I was at school helping the bowl Turner, I turned these there. Since I already had chips on the floor, the shop teacher said I could stay and turn these.
It also gave some of the students a chance to see something besides pens.
Note that when turning these in cross grain orientation I use a bowl gouge and only do pull cuts...cutting down hill towards the center/apex of the egg.

Reflection: I was turning in shop class back in 1970-71 on a Delta Reeves Drive lathe. Still have several bowls....just need to find them.

Here are some spalted maple eggs I turned yesterday. One is in traditional spindle orientation and the others are all turned in cross grain mode.
All turned between centers, nubs sawed off a tad long, carved off with knife and then hand sanded to 400.
I only have one coat of MO (mineral oil) on them at the time of the pic last night.
I like the figuring on the cross grain eggs best. Will recoat and buff when dry.
They were even more lovely in person. Fantastic job, Charlie.

I loved seeing these too Charlie... I always am inspired by your work, and seeing them (and you) in person is such a treat!

BTW, I am developing quite a repertoire of gadgets to use to hold pieces in place for photographing them... the eggs are another challenge for which I I think I have answer!

Can't wait to see them. Spectraply eggs & tops are on my to do list as well.

Penn State sells this kind of egg stand for $4.95, but it should be pretty simple to make something similar. They also have footed egg stands.

Thanks Edgar! I definitely had a look...

I shoot the pictures for the Capital Area Woodturners club (most of the time!)... the challenge is knowing what someone is going to bring and then having something that will stage it properly. That PS stand is a thought for sure. Problem is I don't know how many to have on hand, so making something is more "cost effective"! ;)

Half of my problem is remembering to put these devices in my box when I go to the meeting!!! (gettin' old ain't for sissys!) Of all the things I've lost, I miss my memory the most!

Thanks for the tip... I'm thinkin I may make something similar!

My thought was various sizes of PVC, cut to about 1/2 inch thick, with some of that padded shelf liner cut to size (glued?) to cushion the piece... I'll let ya know how it turns out!
