Woodturning News! We have been very busy cutting wood.A slab of Norfolk Island pine has been cut, the first step in the making of turning blanks. We've milled Monkey Pod, Cherry, Rainbow Poplar, and Podacarpus. Yesterday we cut Norfolk end grain blanks. They still need to be waxed and will be added to the site soon.
These Rainbow Poplar blanks are ready and waiting to be dipped in wax.
Steve made this beautiful closed form which is one of my very favorite pieces from our popular Norfolk Island pine.
A developer was clearing a large tract of land with many Camphor trees on it. The tree shown above is large but not the largest on the property. The largest one measured 27 feet around! Sad to see so many beautiful trees being cut down and chipped up. Luckily for us, we were able to get a couple loads before they hit the chipper.
This is a beautiful figured Camphor chip and dip platter that Steve made.
Camphor logs, so large and heavy that the tractor didn't want to pick them up!
Steve is pondering the best way to cut this crotch piece; hoping for some nicely figured wood.
We are carrying some favorite woodturning supplies: Pentacryl Wood Stabilizer and End Grain Sealer.
A Rosewood log is pictured above during the milling.
