To do these, I turn on two axes and I turn four separate faces. That involves turning between centers on one axes and using a 4 jaw Chuck on the other axes. If you are not careful you can either turn off your between centers mounting points or your recess for the 4 jaw chuck before you are ready to change axes. A smaller piece leaves you with less working room to maintain the various mounting points.I'll take one filled with columbian to go! :biggrin: Nice looking!
Why was smaller more difficult? More tedious? I enjoy your wood pots and now your wood cups/mugs.
I read what you wrote, and all the words are easy enough for me to understand one at a time--i'm just having trouble with putting them together!!I turn it on two separate axes. One axes for shaping the lower portion and for hollowing. The second axes for shaping the upper portion, stopping the cut on either side of the handle.How do you turn that without knocking the handle off each time it comes around?
