Vases and Vessels

These turned objects are typically shaped to resemble flower vases. They can be short or tall but have that distinctive vessel shape.

They can be make in many ways from hollowing to segmented to even inside-outside turnings.

 

Natural Edge, Lidded Hollow FormNatural Edge, Lidded Hollow Form
By: Dwight Bullock
In this demonstration handout, Dwight walks us through all the steps to make a stunning natural edge hollow form. He also includes an excellent description of how he turns his finals and shows a wide range of shapes that you could use.

 

How to Make a 400 BC Greek Oenochoe Style Wine Pourer How to Make a 400 BC Greek Oenochoe Style Wine Pourer
By: Dick Webber
In this tutorial, Dick shows us how to make this classic style wine vase. He uses his commercially available tool, the Flute Master to make the bottom vertical flutes. He also demonstrates how to part the blank into two pieces to hollow out the inside making this an easier project.

Other learnings that can be gotten from this tutorial are how to shape the top of a vase and one that I enjoyed, how to make and attach a handle to a turning.

We hope that you'll enjoy this tutorial and find multiple new techniques that you can use with your turnings.

 

"Eccentric Look" vase turned between centers
By: John Calver
In this project, John laminates a turning blank from three pieces of wood and then turns a nice vase from it. After the turning is done, John separates the 3 pieces and reassembles them without the middle piece.

The resulting vase is more oval (somewhat eccentric) in shape and that makes for a very unique turned vessel. This project is worth a try if you're looking for something a bit unusual. It will surely have most people wondering how you did that!

 

Making a Segmented VaseMaking a Segmented Vase
By: Randy Rhine
In this photo tutorial, Randy Rhine shows how he makes a 2nd generation lamination feature ring and then uses it to make a segmented vase!

The photography is really good and it's great to see how these special shapes are made when they are done with segmentation!

 

End Grain Segmented TurningsEnd Grain Segmented Turnings
By: A.J. Golichowski
In this article, AJ looks back at these end grain segmented vases that he created over 25 years ago. He shows each step along the way to help interested people in taking this unusual concept further. At 90 years old, he won't be making any more and hopes that someone might experiment with the techniques that he devised and is so proud of, as he ought to be!!

 

Turning a HUGE VaseTurning a HUGE Vase
By: Brian MacIvoy
Brian is into "BIG"!! In this project, he starts with a 600 lb. birch log and turns it into a 60" tall, 1/16 wall thickness vase. Yes, it's an amazing thing to see!!

This project is not for the faint of heart!! Each time I see it, I'm in awe!!

Start to Finsh - Cherry Burl VesselStart to Finsh - Cherry Burl Vessel
By: Peter Asselyn
In this photo tutorial, Peter mounts one coarse looking burl with branches and all on his lathe. He shows how he turns it to shape and then shows a couple of shots of his captured hollowing tool. He ultimately hollows it all out and shows us how he jamb chucks it to finish the bottom. He ebonizes the burl as the final step.

 

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."
