  • learning to make sawdust

    Hey people, I'm a beginner, and I already lose track of time in my little shop. Love to make things. My first project was a collapseable bowl/trivot. It sold quick, so I guess it turned out ok. I'm posting a picture of my first fret work. Since this one I have made 7 bowls, and more wall plaques. The latest I stacked to make an opposing set. Enjoy your tips much, and have learned a lot just looking in as a visitor before I joined.

          wood

          since I'm new to this, I use any thing I get a hold of. This piece came from an old house I remodeled. It was 12" wide, outside sheathing. Because of the age of the house I honestly don"t have any idea what kind of wood it is. I suspect pine as it was rather soft. I planed it to3/8 inch.

                    sanding

                    No Marcel, it was dry sanded with 400 grit by hand, the poly was applied by brush. First two coats were thin, last two were rather heavy. Thank you all for your nice comments. Ive only been at this for about 6weeks. The encouragement really helps motivate one. Don

                        Well ... I am SO glad we tempered our enthusiasm. Show is cancelled. Apparently, things did not go as planned. Maybe next year.
