  • Log slice ornaments

    Just playing around with some log slices I bought on Amazon.
    I created the design then burned the pattern onto the slice, cut them out with the scroll saw, did some power carving and paint. Screwed up the star on the one on the left.
    Fast and fun. The green sparkly paint is Unicorn spit. small slice tree and Snowman.jpg

              I had toyed with that idea, but the limb I intended to use checked very badly.

                Great idea Rolf. They turned out great. I have some bark rounds that I didn't know what to do with. Now you gave me some ideas.

                  Jim, I had saved a few logs that I cut earlier in the year, They all checked so these were cheap on line.
                  I think if you sliced your own immediately then sealed them so that they dried slowly that may work,

                    I think the type of wood also has a lot to do with it. If you notice a lot of the "rounds" are basswood.

                      I don't know what these wood slices are, they have huge growth rings so it is some sort of Asian weed tree.

                        Very well done. That must have been harrowing with a power carver on such small pieces with even smaller connection spots.

                          Most of the cut outs were done with the scroll saw.
                          Karl I have a couple of power carvers. The classic Dremel with a flex shaft I then bought a Ram Power carver, they both use 1/8 shank bits. I have a bunch of carbide cutters from when our Printed circuit board facility at work was dismantled. Both work great but for detail work you really have to be careful as the cutters like to grab and get away from you. The Ram power runs at 45,000 rpm. For the real details I use a Vortex F5 pneumatic carver 400,000 rpm, it uses real tiny bits like the dentist uses. It is like writing with a pen, total control. It is what the gun stock carvers use. I tried one many years ago at a woodworking show, and to be polite I tried it, thinking what can you possibly do with something this small. Boy was I wrong, and for the next few years I went to the show with money and he was never there again.
