  • Some more "production" cutting...

    Got some more shop time this past weekend and thought I'd share the results. First pic is what I got cut out and was even able to finish a few pieces. The kokopelli was an order so I went ahead and made a couple For some reason, floral patterns and bird ornaments really sell well. Used a variety of woods this go a round....walnut, curly maple, birdseye maple, "regular" maple, ash, hickory, cherry, figured mahogany, paela, padauk.

    Next shot is the set up for next weekend. All that is left to do is drill and cut. Than finish sand and finish. Then sell.....hopefully... These are mainly maple and ash with the "JOY" words being some crotch figured red oak. I don't much care for oak, but they are "ordered: so I'm happy to cut
    them!

        Very nice selection, Barry. They should sell well in the right market. No wonder you are able to retire at such a young age.

          Great stuff Barry. I hadn't thought about the birds and flowers. I'll have to give those a shot around here. Butterflies do really well for me as well.

            Hi Barry,

            I'd say that was a productive weekend.

            What thickness are these?

            Do you resaw your stock wood or purchase that thickness?

            Regards,
            Marcel

                Thanks for the kind words.

                I buy my wood at thickness as there is no bandsaw in my arsenal...yet.

                I use 1/8" for ornaments, sometimes 3/32". Everything else is 1/4 - 3/8" thick stock. Very occasionally I'll use 1/2" or thicker. And it is not all that "expensive"....$35 of 1/8" wood is enough to make over $350 of ornaments.

                      Very nice work Barry .....I'm particularly fond of the crosses. I've got to practice more on stacking, don't think I could do anything quite that small yet ...gotta get something to hold small bits in my drill press, or find that contraption for my Dremel ...we only go to town once a month around here ya know
                      Good job !

                        You'd be surprised Sawduster, give it a whirl......take another look at the size of the frets. The snowflake ornaments are 5" for scale, the round ones are
                        4 1/4". I use a 1/8" bit and a #5 blade for the internal cuts and a #7 for the external. My stacks are 7/8" thick. If I can do it, it must be easy......
