New stuff

Here are some new cups I made this week. Should work good in a nice alpine stream followed by some red wine. Life is good. Spring is in the air.

New old work

Years ago I used to make a hollow form that had an undulated opening that I made with a spindle sander. I did really well at the shows with them. It was a simple embellishment that would add value to a piece without much effort. While I was getting ready for a trip to do some workshops last week the process reoccurred to me. I can't believe I forgot about this. Here's a few pictures of the hollow forms I did last week.

rough out season

It has been since last Spring since I have roughed out any bowls. I am definitely out of shape. My arms are screaming. The gouge was literally bouncing off the wood by the end of the day. I thought it was the grind on my tool. This is a younger mans game. Must take more breaks. I'll try that today.

new product

Here is my version of the Sierra cup. Believe it or not these are turned. I have the sore knuckles to prove it. Turn the interior with the handle connected, sand, and carve. I got the idea from a cup I bought in Norway years ago. My cups are very similar to the one I got there except mine are partially turned. The shape is very organic. Looking forward to making more and varying the design to make them more personal.
