This took a bit more concentration and a bit more patience than normal! I really do enjoy making the big bowls and hopefully I’ll be in the position one day to have a nice heavy duty lathe, but today I managed to put my little midi lathe through its paces turning this bowl at virtually a foot in diameter!……..#homedecor #woodporn #sustainablehome #woodturner #sustainablelife #woodturnersofinstagram #interiordesign #woodcarving #woodart #sustainablefashion #woodworkingproject #woodcraft #art #reclaimedwood #woodworker #sustainable #design #handmade #wood #naturalmaterials #sustainablebrand #sustainability #sustainableliving #woodshop #woodwork #woodcrafting #woodworking #ecoliving #ecodesign #turnd ? ? ?

After my earlier mishap I carried on undeterred and was determined to create my first little hollow form. I’ve been putting this off for ages, but no more excuses now… Using my @axminstertools #evolution #tool I created something I’m pretty happy with. Let’s be honest though, there is definitely some way to go with uniform wall thicknesses! The series of photos shows the initial shape, then the bored centre, a brief catch around the rim and the finished example with a nice little chamfer to tidy up my mishap! It feels good to be back #turning  #turnd #woodturning #wood #turning #woodturner #axminster #devon #axminsterskillcentre #dorset #somerset #makers #maker #makersgonnashare #makersgonnamake #woodshop #workshop #workshoplife

Back in the shop for the first time in a while… A little bit of practice with the hollow forming tool, fair to say, more practice is still required  any advice on carbide tipped hollow forming tools? The best bit I managed to find online was to make sure you move your rest back to ensure you’re not resting on the swan neck. Things did seem to go much more smoothly once I’d done that… #catch #turnd #wood #woodturner #woodturning #maker #devon #makersgonnamake #england #making #workshop #woodwork #woodworking #bowls #hollowform #turning #woodshop #imback

#newpost ?? #followme #makerWith quite a bit of extra time at home I thought I'd be doing a lot more#woodturning ! However, the sunshine meant it was a good time to get my#woodstore finished (see earlier posts), re-paint the decking, erect a fenceand buy, then build a swing seat… So yesterday evening I actually got back to alittle #turning, with the aim of building up some stock to sell, perhapsparticularly to do a couple of #christmas #markets.So here's the first of ten #snack #nibble bowl's finished in @chestnutproducts foodsafe finish. With the bowl form recessing slightly it was also a good opportunity to make use of my @axminstertools #evolution hollowing #tool – Wow! what a piece of kit that is.Hoping to get these up on the website soon to see if we can sell a few and start actually paying for my #habit ! #axminsterskillcentre #turnd #makersgonnamake
