Mushrooms

Mushrooms are wonderful turned items. They can be just for display in your home or even set out into the garden. They can be large or small. Everyone will love your turned mushrooms.

 

Fun with MushroomsFun with Mushrooms New Woodturning Projects by

I have been out of my shop for six months after moving. I really really wanted to get back on the lathe so even though the new shop wasn’t done, the lathe was in there standing in the corner begging me to play with it. I wanted to design a very simple fun project that had a lot of possibilities. I thought mushrooms in lots of different shapes offered some fun opportunities, so I got to work. 

 

Making a mushroomMaking a mushroom
By: Darrell Feltmate
Darrell says: People like mushrooms. I am not sure why, but they are a steady seller for me at craft fairs. One of the reasons is that I turn a lot of small ones to sell at about $3.00 each. This means that I have to turn them fast and furious. This is good because after the first hundred or so a challenge is needed to keep the turning going. Regardless of the size, I like to have them all proportional, which to me implies a height of two to three times the diameter. Occasionally I turn one a little more squat or a little longer but generally within this ratio.

In this photo tutorial, Darrell shows us all the steps in making a natural edge mushroom.
