Fantastic pieces Dan. Quite clever ideas, designs and re-purpose of materials too.

So you’re a woodworker, AND a machinist. Those are fantastic. Are these something you make on a regular basis? Or is this a most likely one time project? The breadth of projects in this hobby amazes me.

Those are also very beautiful (funny how I have to use the adjective a lot, around here). Seems like a huge labor of love there.

Wow, Dan!  Amazing ideas and work.  So, now you have me wondering.  Do you get a kit for the bud vase?  Where do you get them?  Can you show your procedure so the rest of us can learn and make some attempts?  I would love to make these for Christmas trees next year.  In other words, can we use your corporate knowledge?

Thank you, Dave and Dan.  I did review the blogs.  I am going to write down my questions as this is going to be a pop quiz.  LOL

Steve these are not a kit.  I buy the metal vases from Goodwill and other thrift stores and engineer them and the wood to make it all come together.  Here is a video to get you started.  After the holiday I will do a step by step on one and post it here.  If you have any questions after viewing the video just ask away.  As with any turnings the more you do the better you get at it and most importantly is to be careful.  The hard corners stay on while turning the inside and can give some busted knuckles.  You will understand how I know when you get yours the first time.  

 

 

The video is so good. It makes me think I could do that (and I have never turned before, can’t imagine the learning curve)

Iff’n you wuz of a mind, I’d love to see a video on the ornaments. They look like something I’d like to try and make. Warning- if you give me enough info to try one of these I may turn into a pestiforous annoyance :)

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
