Photo safari with my daughter! Taken at Fort Vancouver. It's a native, but no idea what kind🤔 #woodturning #nativeplant #wildflowers #hadagreatday

Yesterday's drive in the woods. Hwy 503 past Cougar. We happened upon 5 cow Elk, lots of waterfalls, and snow. It was a terrific day. #woodturning #elk #waterfalls #snow #MtSainthelens #alongdrivebutworthit

I convinced myself to give up my wax pot for green blanks. At least for now. From all directions come the message that it's time to try the white emulsion instead. Here are 36 little test tubes to give it a try. I'll be checking for checking🤔 #woodturning #woodbowl #fruitbowl #woodworking #saladbowl #itsabeautifuldayintheneighborhood

Turned 3 tool handles. 2 in hickory for new scrapers, and a third in maple Burl for a replacement that I needed. #woodturning #woodturner #woodbowls #woodworking #burl #hickory #handle #thewoodonthelathegoesroundandround

Just another plain jane bowl. The wood is the real story here. It is called Red Photinia. Where I live it is used widely for hedges. Normally doesn't grow over about 10' tall with a trunk in the 3-4" diameter. This one in my yard grew to about 30' tall with a base diameter of about 9". Doing the roughout of this green wood was grueling. It is a very dense wood. It has a tendency to grab the tool and take it for a spin. I broke a tool handle on this one. I also put a 5" crack in the bowl which has been glued. The lathe guard will definitely be in place when I try to finish it in anticipation of it blowing up. And dang it, I have 2 more pieces to turn😤. #turnedwood #woodturning #woodbowl #woodworking #devilswood #helpmehelpme

Planer Tip. Do any of you run your white plastic cutting boards through your planer? My scarred up boards come out looking new. And it makes the coolest shavings. #woodturning #woodworking #woodplaner #stringyshavings #cooking

I'm really hoping I'll still have this smile after it has been dried😀 #woodturning #woodlathe #bowl #turnedgreen #asmileaday

1st step is to rough turn all of the blanks. They still have all the water in them from the tree. I leave them about 1" thick and dry them for quite a long time. Then will come turning to the final thickness,sanding, and finishing. Loads of fun turning green(wet) wood.

A favored plate given to #bbg62 as a small token of appreciation for providing the maple, cherry, and alder.

I was able to cut and wax about 50 blocks from the load if wood provided by Bruce at #bbg62 a fellow turner. Thanks Bruce, the wood is everything I hoped it would be. #woodturning #bowls #maplecherryalder #woodworking #goodpeple

A fellow woodturner invited me up to his tee farm. He had a nice pile of green rounds for me . There is Alder, Cherry, and Maple. Largest diameter is 28 inch. Thank you Bruce! Saw, saw, saw. Turn, turn,turn. Rest, rest, rest. #woodturning #bowls #platter #woodworking #alder #cherry #hecouldlifttheseliketinkertoys
