Turning the BB-8 Hybrid Burl & Resin Sphere

Finally got the BB-8 Sphere blank turned up, and I’m stoked about how it turned out! First time turning a sphere, and I’m hooked! It was more difficult than I anticipated getting the shape down, but I just kept at it and overall I think it turned out pretty good!

I was very happy to be able to finally show the negative rake carbide cutters Easy Wood Tools recently unleashed. They are a dream to use on larger projects, brittle or chippy blanks, and hollowing. I love them because I feel like I’m in absolute control, and they pretty much eliminate grabs and catches. Definitely worth trying out if you are turning resin blanks.

    1. Hey Roger, they’re a product I bought from Rubber Chucky, they’re the large sphere chucks. Carter tools also sells similar ones that look pretty solid, and you can also DIY them as well
