  • 3D BELL in Olive Wood - very hard wood

    I saw that Woodcraft had some olive wood blocks for pen turning so I decided to get a few and see what it would do for 3D ornaments.

    WOW is that a hard wood, I was using a #7 double tooth and it barely moved in the blank. I went through 7 blades as they dulled very quickly with this 4" ornament but the grain pattern is great!

                  That is very cool! I love the pepper smell of olive wood when I use it on the lathe.

                    Just saw some video from the show. Quite a bit of precision flying--as usual.

                    Oh what a treat. Years ago we went to Air Shows in Oshkosh, WI. Greatest memory was the Concorde.

The blue angels are here every year for graduation. In September there is something at the inner harbor and the Blue Angels, Thunderbirds and another group...
