  • A last minute Gift (Turning)

    I needed something quick so I made my first hollow ornament with a finial.
    Maple and not sure. It is about 6" tall.
    Turning is fun!.

            Hey Rolf - I can make something like that in clay and in plaster. I guess one day I should try using wood - LOL!

            A very nice piece indeed. I also like the curved wood support in the second photo. Did you steam the wood or cut it to give it the curve?

            Thinking out loud a piece like this could make a really attractive clock pendulum, maybe hiding a brass core in it to give it some additional weight.

            Ok, I know. I should stop thinking so much ....

              The hollowing is done with an initial hole drilled in the center with contempt a hollowing tool. For this it was small scraper.
              Jim the stand is steam bent oak. I did it a few years ago.

                Talked to him yesterday after he was coherent. Very fortunately, it was dc current. He said ac current and would have ended differently. And it wasn’t a house. It was a converter box in a marina located on a deck cut into a 20’ high steep bank. They had to climb a ladder to get to it. And they were...

                Wow!!!! That is beautiful. Super job of sawing. If I worked it out correctly it took you less than a minute for each opening especially when I look at the amount of time it would take to saw the outline of the bear. Garry

                Thanks guys, I have a lot of HDU left over from my sign business in various thicknesses.
                HDU doesn't "fuse" or repair itself under heat or friction. Only acrylics and some PVC materials do that. Depending on what part of the world you are in, you would have to google HDU Distributors...
