|In this part experts for woodturning usually describe detailed technique of production as a way how to excuse the high prices of their products. The technique of woodturning is often demanding on time, tools and equipment and is not always successful.|
I use wood around us for woodturning bowls, vases and boxes.
The hard wood of the fruit trees: Apple tree, cherry, morello,
pear, damson plum tree, walnut,
It is necessary to saw the green wood on planks with thickness from 80
to 150 mm and to clean it from bark. Then wood should be stored in place
with a good ventilation. Planks usually become dry after 2 or 3 years
minimally. After this period of time, I prepare the first form of the
future bowl (cylinder or ashlar) and store them in the room temperature
(20-23 °C) in which they will be situated as a final product.
Technique of woodturning:
Some experts say, that the wood must subordinate to the shape. I affirm
that it is wood that is the first and the shape must subordinate to the
wood (to the nature).
The most beautiful bowls in my private collection arose from heart's
ease and inspiration.
