Studio Woodworker - Dancing Rings


Since my transformation to a Rotationiste, the artistic flood gates have opened and the pieces are appearing as if by magic. Maybe I'm channeling a deceased spindle turner. The latest creation is The Rings of Redwood aka The Dancing Rings, the third in my Paradox Series. Took maybe and hour. With a little more practice I could probably get it down to maybe half an hour.

Haven't found a pair of clogs yet but saw a great monocle.

Ebonic, huh? Nice bunch of exercises you've got there! So, the rings are loose on the spindle? That's some interesting work. If I'm right, you undercut 'til it falls off the spindle? Does it freak you out a little when they cut loose? Just thinking about it gives me a bit 'o the willies. Okay, here's the straight line: What kind of saw do you use on a monocle? Tom

Well you got the undercut part right - but the final cut through was done wih the lathe off and the piece turned by hand while the long point of the skew severs the last bit of wood. I do the undercutting at the lowest speed on this lathe - 500 RPMS which comes out to 8 1/3rd revs/second. Even at that speed a catch can do its damage way before you can react. A spiral groove in the almost finished piece can be discouraging.

OK, I'll bite. What kind of saw do you use on a monocle?

And if it's not done right, you'll end up with an eye saw.
