Inside-Outside Turning

Inside-Outside turning is a unique process where you assemble a wood blank, usually with 4 staves, such that it can be taken apart easily. Then you turn the outside. That completes step 1. Then you disassemble your wood blank and reverse the pieces, putting the first turned outside face to the inside of the blank. You now permanently glue the blank into it final shape and put it back on the lathe. Now you turn the outside again, ending up with a shape that has turning on the inside and turning on the outside.

This process if fun as the inside shapes can be designed beforehand enabling you to create stunning pieces. If you've not tried this fun process, it is well worth looking at!!

 

 Inside-Out Profile-Turned TreesInside-Out Profile-Turned Trees by Roger Zimmermann
In this photo tutorial, Roger shows us how to make an inside-out turning using a ring turning process. This is an excellent tutorial and can really get your creative juices flowing to consider different techniques and different profiles. This is on not to miss.

 

 Making Fancy Ornaments (using Inside-Outside Technique)Making Fancy Ornaments (using Inside-Outside Technique) by Ken Grunke
This is one of the best Inside-Outside projects that I've seen. It's clear and precise which is what you need for these semi-complex concepts.

In addition to the turning process, Ken also shows a couple of good alternatives to hangers.

 

 Inside-Out OrnamentInside-Out Ornament by James D. Thompson
In this photo tutorial, James shows us how he builds a turning blank for making an Inside Out ornament. Then he shows us the steps that he follows to do the first turning, the blank reversal and the second cutting. This tutorial will give you a great overview of the process and allow you to try turning some of these unique ornaments yourself!

 

 Turn an Inside Out VaseTurn an Inside Out Vase by Ellis Hein
This vase uses the Inside Out technique.

Ellis says, "I build a blank from four billets, stick them together with double sided tape and cut a depression that will form the hollow interior. I then pull the blank apart, turn the pieces 180° and glue them together. I mount this block on the lathe and cut the exterior. As I cut the external shape, I create four openings or windows to the interior where the interior curves intersect with the outer surface."

 

 Turned Inside-Out Christmas OrnamentTurned Inside-Out Christmas Ornament by Larry Marley
In this free video, Larry starts by showing us how he mills his wood for this inside-outside project. Then he shows the glue-up method that he used for assembling his turning blank. While the glue is drying, Larry turns a small tree which will ultimately become the insert inside of his turning.

Larry then mounts the inside-outside blank and shows us how he turns it, checking it with a small template. After disassembling the blank and rotating it, Larry proceeds to glue it back up into the final turning blank. Back on the lathe, Larry turns the final shape of the ornament.

We're always big fans of video's as they are more like a real demo than any other form of online content. With this video, you'll really be able to understand each step in the process. If you have any interest in inside-outside turning or in ornaments, this is one video not to miss!

 

 Inside/Outside Angel OrnamentInside/Outside Angel Ornament by David Reed Smith
In this detailed photo tutorial, David starts by building a custom chuck for Inside-Outside turnings. Then he proceeds to assemble his blank and cut the inside of his angel. He then rotates the stock (the usual inside-outside method) and turns the final shape of the angel. Lastly, David shows us how he uses a faceplate turning to build a set of wings for the angel.

This project is a little more challenging than most but the stunning results would be worth the effort! If you have an interest in inside-outside turning and are looking for a well documented project, you may have found it!!

 

Hollow Ornaments - Inside Out Turning by Herman Burghard
In this project, Herman gives us exact dimensions and drawings to be able to duplicate his delicate inside-outside ornaments. He discusses each step along the way and uses line drawings to show us what to expect. He is so clear that he makes this somewhat complex project easy to understand.

 

Inside Out Turnings by John Lucas
John gives a detailed explanation of all of the steps involved in creating inside out projects. His drawings also help to explain the rotation of the pieces between the two turnings. And the candlestick drawing is a wonderful example of projects that can be made with this technique.
