  • 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 couldn't resist (too long since any new toys) and ordered a blacklight flashlight from Amazon--same price as Harbor Freight. Should be here Tuesday--can't wait to see all the glue spots I've missed.

                If you google "Moradillo" you'll get more information than you'll ever need. It looks like it will work up beautifully.

                The first picture is Wenge, pronounced WHEN-ghay or WHEN-Gii. It is a very hard wood. It’s splintery and very hard to cut. When finished, it is almost black. I use it when I need a black wood for Intarsia. I do not know anything about the other wood.

                I have a new neighbor who did a lot of woodworking in the past but had to give it up because of allergies. He sold his shop equipment and wood stockpile when he moved here, however he kept a few pieces of fancy wood and showed them to me. The first one (First Photo) he had no idea what it was. It is...
