Default Turning tulips in the lathe



I thought that this YouTube video of my friend John teaching me to turn Tulips in the lathe may be of some interest.

Looks like you made a few eh Harry and you have the process well in hand. Beautiful work and wood in wonderful arrangements and a bonus of no watering.

I have got to start working with my Shopsmith as a lathe. I did get the Nova G3 attachment. Nice posting Harry, something else for me to try when the shoulder finally gets healed! And my wife does like flowers......

Incredible! He makes it look so easy. What wood did he use? Thanks for sharing.

Are you just using hardware store dowel rod for the stems Harry? I see your friend likes the round tip replaceable carbide turning tool. I may have to try that one from Banggood.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Gary, there's all different woods from Pine to Jarrah, mainly off-cuts.

Yes Charles, it's 3mm from our Bunnings big box stores, you probably have 1/8"

I have a set of those Vicmarc turning tools shown at the left of the shot, these were rather expensive, each one fits into the weighted handle and they work very well.

I'm thinking of cheating and using a Forschner bit as I don't have the tool used in the video. Very nice tulip which challenges me to step up my woodturning a bit. What finish was used?
