Woodturning News! We hope all of our customers and their families are staying safe. For us, things aren't very different as we always work at home.
We have been very busy cutting wood. We have milled Monkey Pod, Spalted Maple, Indian Rosewood, Cherry, Black Walnut, and Podacarpus
which is a new wood for us.
We have picked up a load of Mahogany logs. We've cut tall cylinder blanks to make vases and urns. These are shown on the site. We hope to begin milling the logs in August. Watch for the bowl blanks and spindle blanks to appear on the site.
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. Since we were able to get a good deal on these logs, we have passed on the lower prices to you.
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 End Grain Sealer and Odies Butter.
A Rosewood log is pictured above during the milling.
