    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,

              I used those basswood blanks a lot some time ago, I found that unless you first use a coat or two of sanding sealer, they do not take stain real well. Often they turn out blotchy - technical term.. And sometimes they still do after the sanding sealer
