Thats beautiful Tom!
What did you cut those holes with?
also, for the haircut, you need a woman with a jigsaw.
Thanks for the tip on the jigsaw, Monica. Much easier to control. The coffee pour I first made was for the short-lived Graffiti restaurant which was in the Harmony Gallery space for about six minutes. I recently made a much larger one for our neighbors at Mocha Joe's to put on the tasting table Greg and I made for them.
Nice work Tom. We are back in VT. I discovered an amazing group of folks - the Sarasota Woodturners Club while down there. 150 members - so interesting, demos every week - many attending. I was mentored by their "Master turner" who is so fabulous and taught me so much. Great experience. Looking forward to continuing my learning/practice at Hatch. So much to learn. A few images below. Stay home and stay well everyone.
The larger pour needed additional support for the pour shelf. I wanted to keep the design light and airy so I concocted this way to use 3/32 brass rods twisted into a 90 degree spiral. I thought it looked a bit like steam rising from a cup. I was prompted by the design on the glass drippers that Mocha prefers.
The holes are drilled with a 50mm (2") Forstner bit. I have a 2-1/2" bit for larger drippers. I'm thinking of making this a regular product in our store. Not sure what the standard number of holes should be. Thoughts anyone?
Welcome back, Robin. Those bowls are lovely. Your work? Joseph and Greg rearranged the lathes in the shop to a new and much better location with tool holders within easy reach and away from the noise and commotion of the machine area. (Now filled with the CNC machines)
Yes these are my bowls. Thanks
Tom, this is the pour line up at Clover Foods in Cambridge :)
3, 3-holers. I thought three holes would make a nice size for these in general. I want to try one out of a solid piece of stack laminated wood, Michael Coffey style.
