  • Another turned /scrolled ornament

    I have been making some of these again. The bell is from a friends maple tree that I cut a slice from and cut 4x4x6 blocks sealed the ends and let dry for a couple of years now. Free and turns beautifully.
    The reindeer is from a pattern given to me by a gentleman that was cutting them on a treadle saw at the last Fox Chapel open house. The little tree is Cherry, also turned. To make the reindeer I used cherry as pine is too soft for this scale ,

        Outstanding job and great idea! I'll have to put that on my to-do list for next year.

            Thanks for the dime for scale ....... all the more impressive .....
            You didn't really need that big new lathe for those nice tiny little bells, but even more of a trick is keeping those reindeer antlers together at that scale, not to mention Rudolf's red nose!
            Well done indeed!

                Wow - nice work, Rolf!

                It's really neat when someone takes a piece off the lathe and hits the saw or sander to enhance it. Adding the scenes inside really make for a nice piece.

                    Great idea, I didn't picture this when you mentioned them the other day. You asked what carbide tools I used in the other thread, I use the short ones from woodcraft, can't remember the brand and it in the 20's here in Oklahoma so I ain't going to the shop and checking :-). I bought the square rougher and the round finisher, then decided I needed the diamond shape detailer and they had just came out with it with the same handles as my others. I really like them. I cut a lot of the rain deer, but I cut the larger ones , but same pattern. Last year I gave away about 50 pens made out of them . OH, I love the Bells !

                        Thanks for the nice comments.!
                        Ron,
                        I didn't "NEED" for this project, but they seem a lot easier to make when every thing runs quiet and smooth and the tool rest doesn't keep getting loose. Actually they are a perfect project for a small lathe.

                              Are the two rings burned or colored?

                                Sorry to hear that Scott. Bruce had it but I never did. And I try to isolate from Bruce whenever I can. 🤪 We were even around our son and grandson right before they were diagnosed and nothing for us. I guess I overdid the shopping Carole. I tried to sign onto our bank tonight and it is “temporarily...

                                New here and looking for some help and guidance on scroll work and saws.
                                I have a Hegner M25S and have recently made some upgrades and would like to improve the blade clamping. So looking for ideas and help.
                                Thanks

                                Whatever therapy works for you - is a good therapy. Glad your touch/retail therapy was beneficial for you Betty.

                                Scott, I am so sorry to ear that you and your wife have both had to fight through Covid. I hope this means that you are both on your way to healing, if a bit slowly....
