Spalted Maple B32H8

One of two spalted maple bowls which I finished today. This was my first bowl finished with the new Glenn Lucas woodturning tools. They worked very well. Cleaning the bottom with the negative rake scraper worked really well.

Plum Box

Small plum box. I got the wood from a neighbour who had it for over 20 years. It has a small crack but it is stable. Was a fun thing to make and I am very happy with it.

Walnut w/knots

After a while away from the lathe I finished another Walnut Bowl Bowl. 23x7cm I has a few knots in the bottom. The bowl is not 100% dry so these may fall out...

Walnut Bowl

Turned a small walnut bowl today. It went well and I am happy with the results. My biggest problem is getting a perfect surface on the inside of the bowl.

Yew End grain Bowl

My first attempt at a natural edge, end grain bowl/plate. It was quite a challenge because when turning the outer edge you are consulate changing between cutting air and wood. I need more practice to get good at that. I am, however, quite happy with the results for now. It is 35cm wide.


Das ist mein erste Versuch einen Hirnholz, Naturrandschale aus Eibe. Es war eine Herausforderung da beim äußere Rand es ständig zwischen Luft und Holz gedrechselt wird. Ich bin zufrieden muss aber noch üben. Es hat ein Durchmesser von 35cm.

Yew Bowl

I turned the first bowl from the yew wood I got yesterday. It is an end grain bowl which shows the growth rings well. The wood is still wet so it might crack a bit. I hope not, as I gave it away today.

Got Wood :-)

Picked up some wood today from a neighbour. Same woman who gave (for little $$) a walnut tree. Beautiful yew wood. Looking forward to turning a few nice bowls and maybe some boxes out of it. Any other ideas?

Project "Sonne"

At the beginning of the year I was asked by a long time friend, who was relocating and renovating his families restaurant, La Pergola, in Balingen, if I would turn him wooden bread bowls from oak. The result was 9 or 10 bowls. This was the first (and until now last) time that I had to turn so many things and have them be relatively close in size and quality. It was a great experience. Turning the same thing over and over really builds up skill and muscle memory.

Der Woodsmith now has a logo. It was design by  Petra Penz, a good friend of ours. I like it a lot but still would like to hear your honest opinions.

Finished turning the Cherry Wood Vase

I finished the cherry wood vase today. I could be much happier. Hollowing it out was a ton of work. the lever that the cutting edge of the open Ring has at 35cm over the tool rest is tough to handle but it went pretty quickly. The outside is not as smooth as I would have liked. I need to practice much more on long wood.

Started working on a cherry vase...

I got this old piece of Cherry wood from a neighbour down the street. He said it had been sitting around for 20 years. Looking forward to finishing it up this weekend. 


Ich habe diese Stück Kirschholz von einen Nachbar bekommen. Er sagte das Holz liegt bei ihn rum seit 20 Jahren. Freue mich es am Wochenende fertig zu machen.

Bottle Stoppers

Stainless Steel Bottle Stoppers turned from various woods. (Zebrano, Plum & Pear) I orders the stoppers from the US due to the much lower price. Now I am testing different forms. Don't be surprised if one of these is your christmas present :-)

I am looking forward to see how they turn out.  This is the first time I have turned an old beam like this.

Small Walnut Bowl

I am currently trying to finish some bowls which were roughed out before my class with Franz Keilhofer. At that time I was still roughing the bowls to thin which leave little space for adjustments later. I rushed it a bit but in total it is ok.

Deep Walnut Bowl

The tree from which I turned this bowl is from just down the street from where we live. It had to be cut down to make space for new houses.
