    Has anyone ever carved Sewing Thread Spools?
    When I was in Arizona, I picked up some at an antique store.
    I carved faces on them and they turn out pretty well.

    They are much easier to carve in basswood. You can get them from Smokey Mountain Woodcarvers at http://www.woodcarvers.com/turnings.htm. I just turn my own on a mini lathe nowdays.

    Happy Carving,

        243 spools? That should keep you busy for a day or two.

          Thanks,

            Mine is a little different than this one (they must have discontinued mine). I have bought several tools from them and am satisfied (they fit my price range). I have also purchased a foredom clone and it works will also.

            Happy Carving,

              That is beautiful.

              I am chaffing at the bit to get back to the scroll saw, Unfortunately the urban renewal project "Redoing the deck" has taken over all of my time.

              Excellent contrast not only in wood choices (LOVE the bocote), but also 90 degree corners on the bocote and radius corners on the maple. Very nice!
