  • Back to work on Nativities

    As always, I procrastinated all year and now I realize Christmas is only 4 weeks away!!! I planned on giving some new pieces of the nativity to family and friends that got them last year. Also making Mary, Joseph and Jesus form my gift exchange again this year.

    I now have the complete set ready to be glued and finished.

    These took me forever!! Getting them to fit was a nightmare! Thanks Janette for the tips on sanding and cutting!!!

    This shepherd is right off the saw!!! I didn't have to make any adjustments!

    This wise man only needed a little smoothing of one side. My blade got dull and I wanted to finish it before I changed the blade, so I ended up with some ridges. Anyway, Janette told me to go slow and smooth and darn it..... she's right!! I won't have to spend an hour trying to fit each one together!

    Will post pictures when they are finished! Thanks for looking!

              Thanks for nice words! I spent 14 hours in the shop yesterday!!! From 9:00 a.m. till 11:00 p.m. I even ate lunch (peanut butter sandwich) there and skipped supper. But I got a lot done!!

                    Hi Cathy - You have a sharp eye for placing the grain at just the right angle. All your nativity figures are super nice. I'll bet they will look even better with a smooth finish!

                              Back 2 steps. He had to have a spot cut off his back for biopsy and the dr. had to go deep, needed stitches inside and outside, so no exercises for 2 weeks until stitches are out. He sure is high maintenance!

                              Beautiful inspiring work Tony!

                              Glad to hear that the Kobalt saw worked out very well.

                              FYI - I took delivery last week of a SKILSAW 8 1/4" blade portable table saw to assist in cutting pieces for segmented bowl work which I was very pleased to find out of the box was set...

                              This is the definition of spalting, Basically it changes the color of parts of the wood as it decays. Turners love it.
                              "Spalting is any form of wood coloration caused by fungi. Although primarily found in dead trees, spalting can also occur in living trees under stress. Although spalting...

                              You should try the dragon vase pattern as well. I first made mine after Steve published his first pdf vase book by swapping in one of his dragon motifs from the online library. Thats a really good way to increase your supply of patterns. I think Steve liked it because the dragon was included in the...
