  • New Ornaments

    A few ornaments completed recently. These are all entered in the Ornament Challenge sponsored by AsWoodTurns.com. A single person can only enter 5 ornaments - any type, any medium - into the contest. As a club we are trying to enter a large amount in order to win a free IRD (interactive remote demonstration).

    I added glitter to several of my ornaments to let them "sparkle". The challenge was putting the glitter on. After looking at my options, I used some varnish and then before it dried sprinkled the ornament with glitter (over a metal pan lined with a paper towel to catch the excess). Someday I will redraw the 2-sided cardinal ornament so it is more symmetrical.

    Barbara they all look great. I have seen glitter paint in craft stores though I have not used any. I think it was made by Krylon. That might be another option.

      Beautiful ornaments. I just sprinkle glitter on wet unicorn spit stain and it sticks. I even dip it afterwards and it doesn’t come off.

        I did not read the fine print, actually not that fine. when I went to buy my new compressor for 25% off (not). That would have been nice, but I am still happy with my purchase. Although I have not used it yet as my garage is rather cold.

        Some manufacturers will restrict items for resale to a certain price or basement price. And in some cases will only sell with the agreement of no discounts allowed.

        And then there is margin, the retailer needs to make a certain amount of money on all sales.​

        Have you had big temperature swings in the shop? My first thought is something binding. I fix all of my own stuff and don't hesitate to take things apart to try and isolate where the issue is.
        That said at only two years old I would contact Denny and see if he can direct you to a Pegas tech center....

        Welcome. Could be a number of things. I would call Denny at Art Crafters of Dayton or Ray at Seyco. Both numbers can be found on the internet.

        I still use my factory dust collector on my pre Chinese Ex21. No, not for everything that I cut but primarily for compound cutting where we generate a lot of sawdust. I did enhance my dust collector by replacing the membrane wit a piece made on a 3D printer. The enhancements gives a bit of extra...
