  • Bubba n Tenn Twisted Nails Cross finished

    Hello All,
    Here is my cutting of Bubb N Tenn's Twisted Nails Cross. I made it from 1/4" solid Walnut. I did not put a finish on it yet because I am not sure how to finish it. I may also put a backer on it. It is almost 10" high. I would suggest NOT useing plywood because the points or tips my be to fragile for the plywood. Thanks again Bubba for a great pattern. As always suggestions or comments are welcome. Thanks.

    Dip it in danish oil (watco and 50/50 mix of mineral spirits) and then let it drip dry for about 10 minutes and then blow off the excess. You did a nice job!

          How very beautiful! Just like I imagined it would be when I started working on the pattern so many years ago. I never had time to cut it and I never thought anyone else would take the time to cut it. You've made me very happy. Thank you so much. You are a credit to your trade.
          I agree with Mike about the finish, by the way, especially with all the small openings. I think it would look great.

            Beautiful job and using the Watco Natural will make it pop without hiding any of the walnut beauty. Several dippings, a few hours apart, will really make it shine.

              Thanks everyone. Thanks Bubba for the kind words. I finished in BLO/Mineral spirits and waitig for it to dry. It took a total of 3 1/2 hours and I stack cut 3. I guess thats not to bad. I am glad I cut it yesterday because when I went in the garage this morning it was 29 degrees in there. I guess my next project will be in the spring.

                I haven't posted in a few months but I have been keeping up. I agree with what Mark is saying. To make everything for everyone would be very difficult.

                Yes I'm still using the one I built I did some upgrades to it though. I swapped out the pipes for linear motion rails and made the gantry out of aluminum. I guess if I were to upgrade now I would be looking for a full size machine that could do 4x8 sheets of plywood with an automatic tool changer but...

                With all these new tool stories, I was working on and old one. About 9 years ago, I built a router table. Then, before it was finished, I had to start using it. And I have used it over the years. A couple of months ago, While I was contemplating cleaning, I looked at the machine and decided to finish...
