That’s gorgeous! Is that one or two pieces? If it’s two I can’t even tell where the seam is. Great job!
I thought I had three pieces of buckeye burl, and thought I read the markings correctly. But once I got to turning realized that piece wasn’t. So, I designed it so I would lose the most from that end.Ahhh...I should've known because of the wood. Still, it looks intentionally seamless. :)
Oh, too funny Ken! As you have seen, I spent five years cutting loads of wood into small circles. Here’s a sample of bangles, but probably not the best ones.Ive been reading about these bangle centers for months now and these are some very creative ideas for their use. But one item I have yet to see is the original intent.
Show Us Some of Your Bangles!
Dang it! No this was from Turner's Warehouse but I wish I had looked there. It would've saved a ton of time.Great looking cigar case!
Is that kit from Craft Supplies? I made one a couple of years ago that I think was from Craft Supplies, and I'm pretty sure I've got bushings for it too.
This turned out great Barb! Another unique use for those blanks and it looks fantastic. I suspect a prize will be heading your way soon! You have entered some nice pieces for the contest! Thanks for joining in the funHere's my last entry that I just got done. It's a cigar case with a cutter/punch top. I had no idea what a pain this would be. I had to make 2 sets of bushings for it. One to shape it and the other for putting the finish on. I used ca as the finish. All in all it was worth it since it's a gift for a family member but I won't be making anymore unless I can find bushings for it lol.
