A Split-Turned Rocking Vessel Photos by Mark Salusbury Lead Photo by Rob Brown Joinery, joining parts to make a whole piece, is an 'additive' process.Woodturning, on the other hand, involves taking a whole piece and removing the unwanted bits to create the final piece; a 'subtractive' process.
Making split-turned objects is a perfect blend of both processes.It's a wonderful way to develop creative skills by considering both inner and outer shapes harmoniously to suit your style and the piece's purpose.
Split turnings are also a great way to use grain and figure for visual effect and add a distinctive dimension to your work.I began exploring 'split turning' in the late 1990s, inspired by Stephen Hogbins' 'Walking Bowl' of the '80s and by Michael Hosaluk and Mark Sfirri, who were demonstrating both split and multi-axis spindle forms of turning, encouraging others to take the style to new levels of decorative and functional expression.
Split-turned elements are seen in furniture pedestals, legs and case corners plus in architectural fixtures such as columns, newel posts, wall sconces or demi-lune shelves.But here I'll explore the vessel form, creating display pieces that are both attractive and functional.
Fun and way easier to make than it...
