Default Playing with clay and drawing scrolls

Claudio has come to visit and between fishing expeditions we are playing with clay and drawing scrolls.

Barry,

Do you ever use that lathe or is it just there for looks.:D That wall looks awful clean with the pics hanging on it and such.

Really cool idea. It helps to visualize, especially some of the 3d effects, and with a modest tweak of a curve here or there, you can achieve entirely new looks. Get a shape or scroll pattern you like, and copy it.

Unless you have discovered some way of transfering a clay pattern to metal! :D

And I must agree about the lathe. That has got to be for display only. Otherwise, the wall behind the chuck would have a nice vertical line, and there'd be at least a few chips on the bed!

The Lathe gets used, usually for cutting barrel bands. Here is a pic of it actually being used for choke honing.
And the clay can be transfered, take a pic, print and transfer!, but I have never actually done that, hehe...

Yes Rich, please visit anytime. The fish are nearby, and I actually had a nice 300lb black bear run across the road near my house this morning while I was driving around. I grabbed the cam out of the back of the Benz and chased it the bear into the woods trying to get a pic, but, no luck :(
