Turn an Eccentric Pedestal Bowl Photos by Allan CusworthIllustration by Len Churchill INFO: DIFFICULTY - 3/5LENGTH/TIME - 2/5COST - 1/5 Eccentric woodturning is a technique that creates a finished piece with an element, or elements, that are offset from the true center, which is parallel to the ways (bed) of the lathe.
The scope of this project keeps it simple by using only two different axes.Eccentric turning is also called multi-center turning.This process can yield some very interesting results depending on the location and number of sets of axes used.
The wood grain (end grain) orientation of the block used in this project runs in the same direction as the lathe axis.Some intermediate woodturning skills are required to complete this project.Safety in the workshop is paramount, and sharp turning tools are imperative.
This eccentric pedestal bowl is turned on two axes with the true centers being used to round the blank to a cylinder, and to shape the bowl and base sections.A second axis is used to shape the middle of the pedestal.
