You will have to pay attention this morning as there are three separate submissions.
– Mike Hosaluk made a number of turned and carved forms. The process involves turning, splitting in half, carving, burning and dyeing.
– Paul Schroeder has a wide variety of projects to show us.
– Trent Watts turned some lidded boxes.


Mike Hosaluk – Boat forms.


Paul Schroeder

Green Ash Bowl – a bark inclusion on this bowl opened, as the cored bowl dried. I used five butterfly patches on the longest crack, and one patch on a smaller separate crack. I’m glad I pulled the bowl back from the “fire pit” pile.

Big Leaf Maple Saltbox – my wife Jennifer, had seen a saltbox, in a woodturning magazine, and really liked the idea. The box is about five inches in diameter. Rather than use a pin hinge, I placed rare earth magnets in the base and the lid. The lid pivots to the side with the touch of a finger, but is still held firmly in place,

Small Lidded Boxes – the taller box about 3.5 inches is from green ash, the smaller box about 2.5 inches, is a maple box.

Captive Ring Goblet – this goblet is made from red oak. It started, as a scoop project, that grew into a goblet.

Inside Out Ornaments – five ornaments, 4.5 inches in length to about 12 inches in length. Thanks to club members Mel Genge ( inside out turning demo) and Rick Hounjet  (for all his dyed turning pictures) for the motivation for this project.


Trent Watts

I made these two lidded boxes out of some fruit wood given to me by Vic Schapansky. I find that fruit woods in general tend to move and crack so I rough turned these and left them sit for about three months prior to final turning.
