Turned Ladle

Postby Rob. N » Sun Nov 15, 2009 12:36 am

I haven't had much time for spoon carving or bowl turning latley so I though i'd have a go a combining both to keep skills up by making a mary rose ladle. also becuase the kitchen at my medieval group are wanting some authentic ladles to use. :D

still needs a little cleaning up with the knife.

Fantastic Rob, I know just how much harder than a bowl these are so I am impressed. Handle can be a bit scary when whizzing past at speed can't it?

almost caught my fingers at one point but after that i kept all body parts well away from it.

it scary how how much it makes the lathe wobble aswell :shock: had to go quiet slow until most of the bowl was turned.

will have to get a few more made up soon. the kitchen staff are threatening me with flesh hooks if i don't produce :!:

Hi Rob

That's pretty spectacular!

I can just about imagine your lathe jumping about and you springing back saying 'ooh, that was close' or words to that effect :lol: .

Sounds painful - mind you, surely they should be feeding you up as a reward for their nice ladle?

Cheers
How sharp is sharp enough?

Robin, is this how you do your quaiches, or do you turn an entire disc for the handle section, then cut out the waste after?
