Default Nautilus shell is comleted

I made the stand but another drill mishap turned this into a nice piece. I had another slipped drill again and I used the spindle sander to sand it out and then came up with an idea. I used the spindle sander to make a little groove in the base and then made that all the way around the stand and for the inside of the circle and it turned out great! The base is a bowl that did not turn out so I'm glad I did not toss it out. The shell sure did turn out nice with a simi gloss finish. I love the wood turner's finish as it dries real nice. Just wait about an hour and then polish it up. The rest of the finishes will be here Monday or Tuesday. So far that is all I have on the shell. I don't think I really want a high gloss. I like it the way it is. I might make a different stand for it. In Carole's book , Wooden Bowls, there are instructi0on for a vase and the top of the vase gave me an idea. I might make just the top of the vase except smaller and use that for a stand. Enjoy..... Fay

I was just looking at this pattern this very morning. Was thinking about giving it a try. Yours turned out nice. How did you like making it? Was it easy or diffcult? Any suggestions to someone thinking of trying it.

Tammy it wasn't hard to do at all. But you will need a table saw that has a table tilt or a band saw that does the same thing. I had help on this because I have no table saw or a band saw. Any way, the shell was made from a 2 by 4 pine. The 2 by 4 is cut length wise into a long wedge at 18 to 20 degree angle. Can't do that on a scroll saw because there isn't enough clearance there. Mine only will cut a 2" piece of wood and sort of hard at that. Then the wedges are cut into smaller pieces such a 4" or 4 1/2" and you need 4. So the instructions are not hard at all. So once you get the 2 by 4's cut to the right length and angle your good to go. Like I said I had help from a fellow member. I will make another one in the future, but want to try other things first. So it will be awhile. I have a bowl to finish up and it is drying now. I don't like the way that came out but maybe it will be fine. Have a great day Fay

You did a fine job Fay. Don't you love the way the pine looks in the shell? My next one is going to be from zebra wood. That's going to be an adventure, it's not a soft wood like I used on the first three.

Wow Gary, I bet the zebra wood will look great with the wood grain and all. I think it is so neat the way the wood grain shows up in the shell. I never thought it was possible to make a shell from a 2 by 4! But it sure was a lot of fun to work on this shell. Lost a few pieces but then found them and went from there. Before each glue up I would fit the pieces together to get the best fir and look. Then glued up and went on to get it done. I took my time with it as I wanted to come out to be a really nice shell. It is sitting near the tv where I can see it. Sis thought of putting some real shiny jewlry in it to look like a treasure shell. Have a great evening every one... Fay
