  • Compound cut light houses

    I had to cut the lighthouse projects in the Summer issue of SSWWC. I really enjoy compound cuts these were fast and easy. I cut 4 but one is on its way to Austria.
    One is spalted wood scrap no idea what it was. Just for fun I may try a few on the lathe and paint them.

    Those look great Rolf. I liked those too. But so far, all I've gotten done is get the patterns printed out. I see lots of other nice looking work in the background of those photos as well. I'll be interested in seeing some you might turn. One day I'll see about hubby teaching me to turn maybe. So much to learn and do I'm afraid!

      Those look great, Rolf. I tired one with Basswood. What a mistake.

          Actually the one that went to Austria was Basswood. It is a bit soft and fuzzy, I soaked it in sanding sealer and let it dry thoroughly. Then sanded smooth. It came out great. It was the only light wood I had that was thick enough.

            Turning something at this size is like pen turning it is the safest and a good way to get comfortable with the tools.

              I love compound cutting. Those came out great. Now if you want a real challenge try gluing up a block of wood so when you cut it the base is a different wood from the main body and a top is a still different wood. It is the kind of think I have often considered but never attempted.

                I did a quick turning yesterday. I cut the windows first then put the block on the lathe. It gives me lots of ideas.

                  Any tear-out issues around the windows after turning? Size?

                    It is the same size as the original design.About 5". No tear-out. High speed and sharp tools.

                      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...
