Another clip of the action from yesterday. More handplaning (heavily edited since you may have already seen a minute of that), laying out the circle and cutting it on the bandsaw.

After this, Manda @waves_of_grain came over and finished her bowl from a couple weeks ago and took some great photos of me turning. Looking forward to sharing some of those later today. Her bowl turned out great as well! .

Plugging holes and cutting em flush. If you watched my 6 ways to fill pocket holes video then you know this is my preferred method. If you haven't seen it then go check it out on my site, I put a link in my bio ☝️.

The process of throwing a very simple plate, disc form. I made these a while ago, before I started throwing plates with an outer flange. Throwing low forms is a different process from how pots are normally made, where the clay is steadily bought up to form the walls. Instead the clay is squashed downward into a low ball and beyond until it resembles a plate shape. While it’s arguable easier to do than throwing up there is still a certain amount of control and precision needed. The greatest trick I know for throwing plates or any low, wide form is to use very soft clay, clay you’d thick unusable for making normal pots with. Not only will it centre with very little effort, but the whole process of flattening the clay is far more straightforward. This doesn’t mean I don’t centre the clay well, for plates it’s imperative to do it well, which is why you can see me coning the clay up and down a number of times to really amalgamate the particles before I compress it down.

As the pots are thrown on batts it doesn’t matter if the clay is soft, as they’ll be lifted off the wheel whilst still on the wood. It lacks strength and plasticity but that doesn’t matter. For the plates I’ve been making lately, with the outer flange, I use clay that is a little firmer, so the overhang doesn’t slump easily.

I throw these to be very slightly concave, not only to be functional and hold the contents in, but it also allows the glaze to pool nicely. In many ways these are more decorative pieces, for food to be taken off rather than eaten from. I’ve also previously thrown larger ones that could be mounted on the wall, as they show the glazes pattern and structure so well.

Wiring plate off is a skill in itself. Keeping the wire taut throughout the cut is paramount but not as easy as it looks. Any slip will mean the base wont be completely flat as it eats away at the bottom of the pot and means turning the piece will be troublesome.

I always liked this image- upstairs of smith st the Meat market. I usually create the inner room as a small insert that is designed to slide and lock into place in the larger exterior piece. I saw it on a travel channel special about building cruise ships.

Started Ballista's electrical components today. I used 0.25 inch thick machined aluminum as the base for which to mount 4 Victor SP motor controllers as well as the reciever. The next step (and one of the most expensive parts) is to buy Ballista's heavy duty batteries, both of which will cost around $60.00 each, and will most likely be the first thing to explode during a match. After that, main power switches as well as safety circuit breakers for both the drive train and weapon electrical systems will be installed on a topmost electrical plate.

These doors are in the same hallway. The one on the left is the circa 1962 hollow door and casing. The one on the right is the door and casing that I put in today. One down. Ten plus more to go. #craftsman #craftsmanstyle #woodworking #9n3quarterswoodworks #builder #maker #doityourself #dyi #oak #omaha #stillhaveallmyfingers

Experimenting with a textured bowl. Thoughts? Should I finish it like this or smooth it all out?

I'm starting to try new ways of art journaling lately. This isn't that different from what I normally do but I'll share more in my next posts. 😊 I've also been refining my style and I think it's developing pretty well!

Filé knife in for a little spa treatment.
I'm very impressed by this super thin tough Aeb-l steel, this particular knife goes trough a lot of moose meat during hunting season also.
In use for 3-4 years now!
