Please, help me correct the English translation

Hace dos años, más o menos, debido a una vieja gotera, me vi obligado a reemplazar el machimbre del techo del garage. Como resultado obtuve algunas decenas de maderas de pino en buen estado, de 1 cm de espesor por 9 de ancho, y de largo variable. En casa no tengo mucho lugar para guardar cosas voluminosas como un montón de maderas, así que las colgué de un alero en el fondo, sobre una especie de cuna hecha con una soga.

Seleccioné las tablas más sanas y les eliminé los bordes, que en su mayor parte estaban astillados o rotos. Esto redujo el ancho a unos 7 cm, y me permitió hacer una segunda selección que arrojó un lote de maderas utilizables para pequeñas estanterías y otros usos. Con las restantes decidí hacer un experimento de torneado que se me ocurrió hace muchos años, y que alguien publicó acá hace un tiempo, pero no pude encontrar el instructable.

Two years ago, more or less, because of an old leak, I had to replace the socket jointed roof of the garage. As a result I got a few dozen of pine woods in good condition, 1 cm thick and 9 wide, and variable length. At home I have not much place to store bulky items like a pile of wood and hung from the eaves at the bottom, on a cradle made of a rope

I selected the healthier tables and eliminated the edges, which mostly were chipped or broken. This reduced the width to about 7 cm, and allowed me to make a second selection showed a lot of wood I used for small shelves and other uses. With the remainder I decided to do an experiment of turning I thinked many years ago, and that someone posted here a while ago, but I could not find the instructable.

Step 1: Cortar por lo sano (clean cut)

El proceso comienza con la selección de una madera apropiada. Esto implica que no tenga nudos, roturas ni marcas de clavos, y que sea más o menos recta.

Corto las maderas en trozos que tengan una longitud el doble del ancho. En este caso, como el ancho varía entre 7 y 8 cm, corto trozos de 15 cm. Al cortar voy dejando de lado eventuales nudos, manchas de clavos y roturas.

The process begins with the selection of suitable wood. This means it do not have knots, cracks or nail marks, and is more or less straight.

I cut pieces having a length twice the width. In this case, as the width varies between 7 and 8 cm, I cut pieces of 15 cm. When cutting I leave aside any knots, nails stains and broken timbers.

I love the bowl. Looks great!<br>Did you make your lathe yourself?<br>What size of electric motor did you use?
<p>Thanks, jlepack. </p><p>I don't know the power of the motor, it is and old one of a disused water pumper. It lacks its label, has 1400 rpm, I think is 3/4 HP. Last year I replaced the double-cone variator drive by a 4 speed pulley set, homemade too. </p>
your wood working is beautiful. Your a very talented wood worker. I wish I had the talent you have.
Thanks, Matt. I think that I am persistent, not talented.
absolutely beautiful!<br>good job!
Thanks, a918bmxr!
Osvaldo,<br><br>The bowls are beautiful. You can be proud that you cut the pieces of lumber with your home adapted saw and you turned the bowls on your homemade lathe.
Thanks, Phil. I still have to discover the mine and produce steel for making tools!<br><br>The bowls are beautiful, despite several flaws, I agree. And my wife think the same!!! That is uncommon, I am worried... <br><br>BTW, are there any gross errors in English?
No errors are gross. Some are quaint. You communicate well. Thank you for sharing this with us, the bowls are wonderful!
Thanks, Google Translator be lauded! <br><br>Yes, the bowls are nice, but nobody wants to pay for them the work they cost.
Fantastic job, these look amazing. <br><br>I have not yet tried to do a bowl made from layers yet.
Thanks, Andy. Yes they are nice bowls. I made 7 or 8 to gift the family women.
Elm is &quot;Ulmus sp.&quot; <br>Paulownia is &quot;Paulownia tomentosa&quot;.
Thanks, thepelton, but I live in Argentina. Here is not easy to get something wasted, because almost nobody throw a thing if it can be sold out. However, I usually bring home things that I find, cast away and that may be useful, including some old wood. Anyway, thanks for your concern!
There are a number of sources for free wood. One, if you're not too particular about the thickness and species is to reclaim pallet wood. Shipping pallets can be found outside and behind various stores and businesses. Just be sure and ASK before taking. <br> <br>Another source is windfall. Some species of tree cure easily, and can be used for woodworking quite well. Two I know of are Chinese Elm and Paulownia. Both are introduced species in parts of North America, and can be cut with impunity.

Very nice,muy bueno. <br> To make it easier, less splinters, to turn the boards round I suggest that you clip the corners off. Make them octagons before putting them on your lathe. Also the central mounting hole could be plugged with a contrasting wood or eliminated entirely by glue mounting to a sacrificial block. It's an old way of mounting but still usable. Checkout these sites for old turning books. <br> http://www.archive.org/index.php <br>http://www.gutenberg.org/wiki/Main_Page <br>http://chestofbooks.com/index.html
Yes, I agree with both asseverations. I thinked to use the sacrificial block, if fact just I did it, but I don't show it in the instructabe because this was done before. <br><br>A corner of a square board broke a glass in my workshop. It is partially the price I must pay to learn.<br><br>Thanks for the links, thanks for the comment.
I hesitate to correct your english but i think you are talking about a bicycle tube. The inner tube of a bicycle tire? From what I can see this is called an inner tube.
Yes, it is as you say. I will correct the text, I use Google translator because I speak only spanish. Thanks very much!
soooooooooooooooo gorgeous what amazing wood!
Thanks, I'm glad you like them!
Really beautiful! I like them -- one more project on my to-do-list.<br> <br> Alternating the wood grain direction gives very aesthetic results.<br> <br> Be proud of yourself and enjoy your work. Thanks for sharing.<br>
Thanks for your compliment!
They look gorgeous!
Thanks, ChrysN.<br> <br> Marketing Survey: Would you pay $6 for one of them?<br> <br> I am planning to become &quot;the bowls's tycoon&quot;<br>
.&nbsp; I think you are under-selling yourself. I have to agree that $125 is more than I would pay for a simple hand-turned bowl, but $6 is too little. IMNSHO, $15-25 would be a better price.<br> .&nbsp; Of course, if you charge $125 per bowl, you don't have to sell very many. :)<br>
Nacho, there in &quot;first world&quot; (USA, Europe, Japan, etc) things costs more than here, as a general rule. It is true that 6 dollars is a price a little low, considering that each piece consuming me almost an hour of work, although the raw material is free. Free but limited: timber that I have probably made me reach a few ten, then I'd have to buy.<br><br>Anyway, I will try to auction off a bowl in Mercado Libre (free market, the Sud American eBay), maybe someone decides to pay more I guess.
. If/when you decide to ship to US, please PM me. I would like to have a rimar2000 original on my shelf.
OK, when the next container be full, I will PM you.
Yes. I think that is a bargain, if you search the internet for handmade wooden bowls they can cost a lot more, for example <a href="http://www.etsy.com/listing/47671071/baltic-birch-bowl?ref=cat2_gallery_15">http://www.etsy.com/listing/47671071/baltic-birch-bowl?ref=cat2_gallery_15.</a>
EEEEHHHH, that is an abuse!!!! <br><br>Who did it? Michel&aacute;ngelo?<br><br>
Ditto.<br><br>It reminds me of some old souvenirs from Croatia sitting on a book shelf at our house. Just beautiful.
Yes, they the Croats were copied from me ...<br><br>Thanks!
Very nice - I'm tempted to try my hand at this now (we have lots of scrap wood of a perfect size in my basement). I agree with ChrysN - I've seen these types of bowls being sold in galleries for $80 or more, and even in raw wood shops, they usually go for $20 to $30. I'd think you'd have a lot of success with these if you can keep up a good supply of free lumber! Kudos.<br>
Here is difficult to sell them above 5 or 6 U$S each. <br>Maybe my future will be to export them. But the problem is the shipping, it should be a significant amount, but I can do, for now, only 6 or 7 per day, at most.<br><br>Thanks!
Really well done! Great work as always.
Thanks, Culturespy!
Really beautiful. I especially like how the inside of the bowl is just as amazing as the outside.
Thanks, cdawisconsin. I like them, too. It was worth the work!
Those bowls are beautiful!
Thanks, canida. I think the same. And my wife too!!!!
Los resultados, teniendo en cuenta el hecho de que est&eacute; utilizando herramientas caseras son asombrosos. En caso de que alguna vez me encuentro en Venezuela debemos reunirnos para charlar sobre una caipirinha.
Perdon, Argentina.
Es cierto, con decirte que hasta a mi mujer les parecieron lindos...<br><br>Bueno, ser&aacute; un gusto encontrarnos. Para m&iacute; un agua t&oacute;nica bien fr&iacute;a. <br><br>
