E101(2nd upload). Sphere Cutting Jig and First Attempts ·
By: M. Saban Smith Woodturning
November 21, 2017 · 2,166 views

On my second 'day off' after the Harrogate show, I have my first play with the Paul Howard Sphere Cutting Jig. It went pretty well, as you'll see...but the phone battery died so a lot of it is missed. Sorry. You'll get the idea though...until I do a proper video about it.

 

#32 Making a Sphere - aka a Ball! ·
By: Andrew Whale
October 01, 2017 · 903 views

Making a Sphere (aka a Ball!) Hi This is my first attempt at trying to make a small sphere - about 3 inches in diameter. I don't have any special tools for making a sphere, so I decided to make my own accessories to hold the sphere between centres. The method I used produced a very good spherical shape. When cutting the bead, the centre alignment must have been out by about 1mm which resulted in a flat spot on part of the bead - so not perfect. I finished the sphere by applying colour (spirit stain) and applying four coats of Danish oil. I hope you find this video interesting. I always lik

Hoyle Curtis - Serenity Spheres ·
By: Rocky Mountain Woodturners
July 19, 2017 · 1,609 views

Hoyle Curtis demonstrates Serenity Spheres to the Rocky Mountain Woodturners on July 6, 2017. Hoyle discusses several of the most common methods for hand turning a sphere and demonstrates his preferred approach so that an average turner can successfully turn a sphere. He discusses several methods of fixturing to allow final roundness to be achieved and sanding. He used the scrap from the blank to produce both a friction chuck as well as a stand so the sphere doesn't roll away. References are provided.

N-Loop Perfect Celtic Knot Seeks Perfect Sphere ·
By: As Wood Turns
June 25, 2015 · 12,925 views

http://www.AsWoodTurns.com This journey thru Celtic knots has resulted in an easy and repeatable process that greatly simplifies preparation of the turning stock. In previous descriptions, the project wood had to be milled to exact dimensions: squares for four loops being the easiest, triangles for three loop, pentagons for five loops. The significant realization was that it's not the wood that has to be milled. The milled wood was shaped to provide positioning for the cutting angles. Instead, we only need to make plywood polygons that can be attached to the ends of the wood to maintain positi

A Perfect Globe or Sphere Mirrored Christmas Ornament ·
By: As Wood Turns
November 06, 2014 · 7,486 views

http://www.AsWoodTurns.com This video is a combo. First, following a conversation with a fellow club member about his difficulty turning perfect balls and spheres, I'll demonstrate how to turn a perfect ball without having to buy and expensive jig. (and then finding the jig only does part of the job anyway.) Second, I'll use the sphere to create a Christmas ornament with mirrors set into its perimeter. For the Christmas ornament, I did not have to turn a perfect sphere -- not one would ever check for perfection and many would prefer a more elongated shape anyway. My ornament globe is walnut finished with shellac friction polish. The finials are turned from 'topical hardwood' pen blanks. The mirrors are 1' diameter from a local craft store. Beveled mirrors would be slightly better. Enter your email at http://www.AsWoodTurns.com & I'll let you know when the next easy woodturning project video is ready.

Turn A Large Hollow Wood Sphere Or Ball With No Fear ·
By: As Wood Turns
July 19, 2013 · 18,786 views

http://www.AsWoodTurns.com To dispel my ball turning phobia forever, I decided to do a large, hollow ball. What's different? Well, on a large ball, any irregular surface is more apparent. Even more is that I'm having to turn blind. I cannot check wall thickness as I work the wood -- I have to rely on measurement taken before gluing the two halves together. Then be sure not to cut through into the interior. In contrast, I could keep turning a solid ball smaller and smaller until I get a smooth result. This ball is turned from dry poplar laminated from 2 inch blanks. The ball is about six inches in diameter and finished with beeswax and mineral oil.

Simple Wood Faceplates For Perfect Balls Or Spheres ·
By: As Wood Turns
July 05, 2013 · 8,647 views

http://www.AsWoodTurns.com In my last video I turned a couple of wood balls to overcome a long running phobia - a concern that I could ever turn a perfect wood sphere. But I did it. One requirement was to have a process that I described in that video. However, part of the process required a set of wood faceplates. In this video, I show making one of these simple faceplates that are threaded to fit the tailstock live center and have a tenon with which to mount it to the headstock spindle. Either faceplate can go on either end of the lathe. This makes them interchangeable. My faceplates are made from poplar and left unfinished. These faceplates made ball turning simple. The last video in this series will take the process to an extreme. Enter your email at http://www.AsWoodTurns.com & I'll let you know when the next woodturning project video is ready.

 

Turn A Perfect Wood Sphere Or Ball - No Expensive Jig ·
By: As Wood Turns
June 28, 2013 · 186,599 views

http://www.AsWoodTurns.com One project during a week long woodturning class a few years ago was a wood ball using a jamb chuck. I failed miserably to get the ball smooth. It ended up very rough and out of round. With this failure, I feared being able to make a good ball. Since then, I've looked for a jig or a process to turn a perfect ball or sphere. I doubted I could do it myself. I looked at commercial jigs - expensive and plans for DIY jigs - difficult to make and potentially inaccurate. More recently, I watch Dale Larson and Alan Lacer both turn perfect balls using only simple faceplates.
