  • Pacific madrone

    Hello All Anyone have experience carving madrone? I plan to turn most of it. Will be carving with hand tools. Thanks, Ron A.

    Ron, I have a piece of madrone waiting for me to carve. I am told it is a very hard wood but beautiful finished. Am waiting anxiously for someone who has carved it to tell us about it.

      I suggest you keep the carving light; it is extremely hard.

        If you are carving a harder wood with tools sharpened for soft woods like basswood you will find that they lose their edge very quickly. Keep the strop very close and don't be surpised if you need to re-hone your knife or tools when you get done.

          New toys sometimes become tools we can use, and other times they simply are tools toward expanding our horizons and being there when an idea pops into our heads. Let us know what you try the Ortur on and how it does. I'm sincerely curious. Also....why did you choose Amazon vs the other vendors...

          It was a challenge that’s for sure. I didn’t start anything until I was all finished. It’s nice to have a clean area to work in! My biggest challenge was all those pieces of scrap wood that I just might need “someday.” They burned well in my son’s woodstove. And I did get through all the patterns....

          Wow - Betty, what do you charge. I have things to do and I'm in the process of cleaning my shop, just to have room to do it. My problem is that I get the work bench cleared and then start working on projects again. I really need to do the workbench last.

          I ordered and received the ORTUR Laser Master 2 from Amazon, the but haven't had a chance to even get it out of the box. Too much going
          on right now. I got the 20 watt version, which is supposed to be good for cutting, but I don't think I'll be doing much of that. There will be a learning curve...
