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 side grain turning blanks. We've cut some tall blanks of Camphor, Eastern Red Cedar, and Mahogany. A few natural edged Camphor crotch blanks are on the site. These will show interesting figure.
We have just finished sawmilling Eastern Red Cedar, Black Walnut, Cherry, Box Elder, Rainbow Poplar, Mahogany and Magnolia. The Magnolia is a new wood for us. The picture above shows a slab of the Magnolia still on the sawmill. We're still making the blanks. So far, we have the Eastern Red Cedar, Mahogany and Magnolia on the site.
Here's a picture of one of the slabs of the Box Elder.
We just finished making a wide variety of sizes of the end grain Norfolk Island Pine.
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.
We are carrying some favorite woodturning supplies: Pentacryl Wood Stabilizer and End Grain Sealer.
A Rosewood log is pictured above during the milling.
