    Default cubism 2022 revisited hughie

    It is good to see you enter into the spirit. Well done.

    The images are no different to normal posting. Just to conserve the Forum's capacity I try to keep images as small as possible, but frequently due to my poor photographic skills or the quality of the old material I research, I find I have to resort to a medium size image or a large image. As I expect you know this can be done when posting by double clicking on your pix and then choosing the size option. If you are referring to the kb/mb size, the Forum will automatically reduce the file size if it exceeds a certain size (around 350kb maximum I think) or you can do this yourself. I do the latter as loading the pix becomes a little quicker.

    Viewers to the thread, including the judges, can always click on the pix to enlarge them and view them separately. Apologies if I am telling things you already know, but this information is as much for others as yourself.

    Good luck with the comp.

    Regards

    Hi Paul ,

    I work with a few online galleries and they are generally very fussy on image quality, stipulating minimal pixels etc etc. number of views, what type of views etc

    Ok do you want work in progress type images as we go along? I kinda under way, its going to be busy as I have a couple of others on the go as well. What I have in mind is an idea I have had for awhile, spirals with a twist so to speak, a fair bit of layout with even more carving. It will be in Blackwood from the Southern Highlands NSW an area that produces some spectacular Blackwood equal to if not better than Tassy.

    Hughie

    WIP images are welcomed. I would suggest that you have a glance at other entries in this comp and also in the Plane Comp that finished a while back to get some idea.

    Default Wip 1

    Ok here goes the WIP a bit of a first I have never actually shown WIP fully. So it will be warts and all.

    One of the interesting aspects of turning this particular Blackwood. It came from a mature tree with a dia of around 1.2m the grain is a bit curly, compressed, has a fair amount of silica in it and is prone to tear out.

    The first image is a SN2 chuck with my propriety jaw design to hold over size blanks for roughing, There are a couple of guide lines drawn with a texta . The smaller to the end is for the foot dia which is around 76mm and the larger is the approx location of the largest diameter, as I will be turning the bottom half and finishing it and holding the piece by the foot to complete the outside and the inside. Challenging? Nah not really as this is my standard modus operandi and have been using it for years with very few stuff ups.

    Subsequent images are as follows , my doodling's and concept ideas. I find I have to be able to draw what is in my head to clarify the idea, so consequently I have 2-3 note books full of ideas, wild thoughts and concepts.
    The remainder images of a hybrid tool and cutter cobbled together out of bits and pieces in the workshop. The cutter is different in that its an old blunt Carbide cup cutter from a CNC metal turning lathe. Sharpened and shaped some, the actual grade of the cutter is unknown but given it is from a tool and die workshop making aluminium drawing dies I suspect the edge retention will be good, time will tell.

    So I'm not the only one. I use a lot of question marks like you do but your doodles look like technical sketches compared to mine.

    Default plan B

    Ran into a small issue that grew into a major so much so will have change blanks and go to a piece of Camphor Laurel. One of the down sides of cutting up a fallen tree is rot, namely white rot. The Blackwood had a small amount and didnt look to bad until I got into it, it is till fine for turning but no good for this piece I intend to embellish it with a fair amount of carving and it wouldnt hold together.

    Default stage 2 re-chucking with steady

    Re-chucking SN2 with long jaws so I can access the foot area in required in the final shaping. The steady type is another one of mine done like this to allow full access with my hollowing systems with a laser. The bottom half has had the final sand and cleaned up with EEE with a little DO just to stop finger marks during the rest of the process. This is my standard approach to hollowing etc. I run CA a couple of times around the foot to give it additional strength and then leave over night.
    So from here I will finish the outside and hollow it, before marking it out on the other lathe I will run the inertia sander over the whole outside with 240 grit to make the pencil markings stand out very clearly and easy to follow [ HB-2HB pencil ]
    Any queries fire away

    Part 3
    Time for hollowing, what's important is grain orientation especially if going to embellish the surface and at this point you can see if the choice is going be ok. The shape or form has also is important it can either enhance your embellishment or down grade it. Drilled the centre with a 30mm Forstner bit all the way down to with 5-10mm of the depth I want and have done the preliminary opening up the throat to give access into the corner of the piece.
