Lon Kelley - Toys of the month. I scanned the patterns into photoshop and added detail and color. The white ones can be colored by the kids
Chris Farquhar - The Panda is a Judy Gale Roberts design; has 23 pieces;
wood used is Black Walnut, Red Cedar, African Wenge & Pine. Took about
1-1/2 weeks to finished
|Rick Spacek - The first two are old barnwood/august crosses front and back no finish. The tray. I don’t know the types of wood don’t even know where I got from inside is the elegant cross sprayed with clear gloss
Juan Cardenas -
My wife and I are beginner pen turners. This here being our fourth
project. She rough turns the blanks and I get to finish off the edges
and give it its contour, sand from 150-12000 grit and add finish. This
Cigar pen was made from olivewood, a black titanium kit and finished
with doctor's wood shop high build friction polish. The stand is made
Walter Hansen - After
two years and three months of sweat and toil, Walt Hansen finally
finished the Mary D, built from Glen-L designed “Malahini” boat plans.
The boat was built using rift sawn white oak frames with African
Mahogany planking over marine plywood hull and decking. The deck is
planked with African Mahogany and Sugar Maple strips bordered by
Peruvian Walnut covering boards. The dashboard is bookmatched Anigre
with Peruvian Walnut trim. Seat bases and built-in caned seat trays are
of teak. The boat also sports a 1958 Ford Thunderbird steering wheel,
hydraulic steering, and a Mercury 60 hp outboard motor. She can cruise
at up to 40 mph.
David Janowitz - I made
this pumpkin lidded bowl out of Osage Orange, with super glue to fill
all the cracks. I added some grooves on the bottom, and contoured
the lid to fit neatly. I also sanded it to 2000 grit. There
is nothing on the wood; it is so hard, you can polish the surface smooth
and shiny. 9" diameter, 6" tall with lid.
The first is my biggest
bowl to date. Sycamore, 17.5" diameter by 6" tall. This was
challenging, at least for me.
Next are two small
sycamore vases, one with a lid, like an urn. These are only about
6" and 5" tall.
Finally, some bottle
stoppers of pecan, sycamore, and dogwood. Never worked with
dogwood. It turned nicely, but darkened and lost some color when I
applied Tung oil. I'm going to try water based urethane next and
see whether I like it more.
