  • Peace On Earth Candles

    FINALLY got this piece finished and it's for ME! This one is NOT leaving the house! I've made this piece several times, but this time used different woods .... bloodwood and cherry candles, sumac and poplar leaves, shedoah (sp?) needles. Flame is pine and cedar, plaque is nogal and letters are maple. Baltic birch ply is the flame's glow.

    This is a JGR pattern (not in a book but purchased separately). It's the first pattern I ever bought, is still my favourite, and I suspect it always will be.

    It is well done and kudos on making something for you. It is not very often we make something to keep.

        Very nice! I don't think I've seen that pattern before.

                Beautiful is the first word that comes to mind...

                  Nice colors Lou! Nice to see you making one to keep. I always say I can make another one and never do (to keep that is)

                    I have several bowls that I have turned a few are natural edge or have distorted a bit over time and I have not been able to finish the bottoms to my satisfaction.
                    I have had a vacuum chuck for many years but getting the bowl centered is always a challenge. So I bought this setup https://ww...

                    Most of the books have the page size pattern with a scaling factor on the page. I am fine with that. Then there is the issue of the less computer literate who will have no clue about scaling or have the resources to do so. Maybe for the oversize patterns have an additional scaled copy to fit a standard...

                    I’ve migrated to poplar from Baltic birch for my puzzles in part because it’s easier to cut and doesn’t wear out blades as quickly as the BB does. I can usually cut 5x the number of puzzle pieces in poplar than BB with each blade. I currently get my poplar ply from Cherry Tree. They sell it in...
