Bowl Surgery, Episode 5 – Woodturning, Wood Art


While the glue dries on this, I have a couple
of bowl blanks here. This one has a couple of large checks in it. This one is not too bad at all, but they are
just about the same size. I think it could be a good candidate for bowl
surgery. I also have this leftover piece of walnut
that I think I could fit in there. Who knows, I might glue something in there
too. I have a few more of these scraps left. I think I could probably do something with
them; find some bowls to fit these. That has a check there. I think that could work. That could be pretty interesting. This is crepe myrtle, which is a really curly
wood. I guess I will go with that one. While I am at it… This piece of cherry has a lot of checks running
through the sap wood here. I think I am going to put this on the lathe. Basically, remove the rim and glue it on here. This is a piece of magnolia, I think. I am just going to sand this rim flat. I have the large jaws on my chuck and a small
tenon on this piece of wood. It is actually going to be faster for me to
cut this off with the saw than to bother changing my jaws. I think this batch tuned out pretty nice. I have six bowls here. This one is made from hickory with black limba. I do not think the contrast between these
two pieces is very strong. It kind of gets lost. If you get it at the right angle, it kind
of looks shiny. These two pieces are made from hickory and
cherry. The cherry is the portion with the light sap
wood and the inserts are walnut. I am really pleased with those two. This is a mystery wood. I do not know what it is. Man, it really soaked up the finish. I think I need to put another coat on this
one, actually. It is a crotch piece, so it has a little bit
of figure in here, which is kind of neat. This is walnut as well. This is a piece of magnolia with a piece of
cherry glued on top. Inexplicably, I have a little bit of torn
out grain on the inside. The rest of it turned out really nice. This is my favourite though. This is a piece of crepe myrtle with a piece
of zebrawood. The curl in this wood is really spectacular. These bowls will be going up on my Etsy store
soon, probably sometime next week. I will have some other things to go up as
well, so watch for that. If you made it this far, thanks a lot for
watching. Hopefully, you will keep watching for the
next episode of Cammie’s Garage.
