Me too! I would love to see the artistic, ornamental wood turning stuff that you have done. It is really interesting to see the talents of a diverse group of people - bring on the happy snaps!

Cheers

Joe,

Forget the insert picture bit. Go down the reply page and find the "manage attachments" link. Click on it and another window will open. Click on "browse" and find the pic you want to attach on your computer. Select it and then click "open". It will go back to the previous page with the address of the pic now inserted. Click on "upload image" and Bobs your uncle.

Joe, if you open the pic in Microsoft Photo editor, click on file, properties, and adjust the resolution to below 100 and all should be OK.

Bugger:o I'm really sorry guys, I can't seem to get them down to a managable size but I'll keep trying. I wish I could drive this thing as well as I drive my lathe.
The clock I intended to show wone first prize, Grand Champion at the Ipswich Show 3 years ago, the first time I have ever entered anything. I'll sort it out eventually, thanks for all the tips and advice. I have only just joined and it's nice to feel welcome:)

Some time ago I did this "box".
I hope it finds its way in the "decorative turning"

I don't know if this constitutes "Ornimental" turning, but I made this little lidded bowl for SHMBO and she has put nothing inside so I guess it is strickly ornimental as she doesn't use it.

Claude,
That is a fine box, is it made on an eccentric chuck?
I just purchased an eccentric chuck from Ken Grunke, in Wisconsin USA. http://www.token.crwoodturner.com/ecc/
Whenever it arrives here I will have to try a lidded box on it.

I saw a artical in a woodwork mag , how to make a long stemed cup , thought i would give it a go , 2 hours later i'd finnished , so i carved the cup end into a rose to waste the rest of the day , it was finnished ( well 2 more coats untill it's glass ) with Wattle Estapol 7001 2pac clear , the Timber " i think " is Iron Bark

Did you hand-cut the barley-twist stem?

Nice piece of work, I didn't mean to cringe when you mentioned finishing it with [shudder] 2-pack.

Hi All,

new to this site!

was just looking around general sites to find some pics for some new ideas to turn. i have found some interesting stuff on here. :2tsup:

Anyway, the reason for me actually signing up with this board instead of just viewing is that all my turnings are ornamental, i am in the middle of creating a website with them all on. it is www.timberturning.co.uk (http://www.timberturning.co.uk) (if i am not supposed to post links :o i am sorry and please remove it) let me know what you think.

Links are OK. :)

One question... where are the pics of your ornamental turnings? 'Most everything I see there are "normal" turning... or do you mean you turn ornaments?

That's a slightly different thing to what we mean by "ornamental turning..." Normal turning leaves your typical circular profile, but ornamental turning can be roughly described as using an external cutting device on the lathe to create non-circular decoration on a turned piece.

eg. barley twists, the decorations of a rose engine (http://home.vicnet.net.au/~pwguild/o-rosego.htm), ovalled or "lobed" turning.

yes good points Skew, most of the pics in this thread seem to have been straight turnings or some off centre stuff...

The classic definition of ornamental turning from JJ Holtzapffels book " The principles and practice of ornamental or complex turning" is

http://books.google.com/books?id=LwbV4YUTQmMC&dq=holtzapffel&printsec=frontcover&source=web&ots=bbGg0_HZz3&sig=tspdQKX5OjrH0FqXY6ONqync-W8


The branch of the art to which this volume is devoted comprises two distinct varieties, one, the decoration of surfaces and circular axis solids to which the work and been first reduced by plain turning and the other the production of numerous compound solids and the subsequent ornamentation of their component superfices.

A turner I:--with unremitting skill,
I turn from yellow box, whate'er you will:
Boxes of shapes unnumbered we produce
And who can tell our boxes' varied use;
There may'st thou store, secure from stranger's view,
Thy noble treasures of the brightest hue,
There too the ball is made, which--wondrous sight!
Struck by the wand, rebounds in varied flight,
Here too the top, that warms the schoolboy's force,
And whirls on level ground its well urged course.

Nothing wrong with the odd mis-post or two... at least it brought all us wannabe ornamental turners out from under our rocks and got some posts happening. :)

Betters still, I got a few new links out of it. :wink::D

If anyone is interested, here is another free set of plans for an inexpensive rose engine (from the OTI site I mentioned a few posts back).

So... Would using a chatter tool on the lid of a box bring it into ornimental turning? or is that cheating :? :doh:

Probably cheating; but principally for OT "Nazis." 'Tis only a matter of classification really. At what point does a bowl with an undercut rim become a hollow form? Or a vase with a stem become a goblet? Or, or, or ...

yes chattering is a type of ornamentation but produced via handheld tool not a precisley measured and machined lathe attachment
