    Oh Boy...

    Big brown truck brought me something nice today.... 26 board feet of 8/4 Macassar Ebony... Time to get the wheels spinning...
  4. The pink colored wood is a fabricated plywood material that comes in many colors. I can be unpredictable as far as color saturation and texture. Some of them bleed color dust badly when I sand them. It can also be a disappointment when you get to where want to be and discover a small area that is open or has stacked layers. The black is Ebony and it too can have flaws. This one did. When I turned it down to about three eighths of an inch, the texture changed slightly and it broke off...........twice. So what you see is what I got. It is far from how I wanted it, it is how I had to take it. My boss likes it a lot............thats all that matters.

    Turning Ebony

    I have a couple of pieces of that beautiful black Ebony. I decided to turn some down for parts of an ornament. Throughout the turning, I kept thinking I was turning acrylic. This led to a serious problem when I got to the smaller diameter pieces. After all, it is wood and does have flaws. If there is a weak place, you won't know it till you find it the hard way. I've had to improvise several times and still not sure if it will make it thru the process. I'll post a picture if it does. If I had any hair, I would have pulled it out by now

    Ebony turning II

    I think I have a handle on Ebony and how best to proceed, so I learned from my first turning and applied what I knew. All went well with the Ebony and then I selected a much better piece of Yellow Hart than the piece I used with my first turning. As I was finishing up and pleased with my work, there was a noise outside that startled me and I made a move that BROKE the yellow heart in two pieces!!! I walked away for about an hour, had a coffee and came back. Not wanting to make a new piece or destroying what I had.............I got an idea and I worked at it until I have what you see. Finding centers and drilling holes in those tiny pieces was one big challenge.

    Turning Ebony

    Today I turned some black Ebony for the first time. A very dense, heavy and hard wood. First thing I notice is that the chips don't go a flying, like normal. A black discharge of tiny particles, more like dust. I used my carbide tools mostly, but did also use my HSS small gouge and parting tool. I did notice that these tools got dull quicker than normal. Does this wood take glue well? Should it be prepped first with an alcohol cleaning?

    Ebony sparks???

    A few years back, I received a huge chunk of Gaboon Ebony. It originally weighed in around 60 pounds. Over the years I've cut small sections off for trim, pen blanks, etc (at the most, 3/4 inch thickness per cut). For my current project, I ripped two 6 in wide boards, using the band saw with a 3/4" blade. About a 1/2 inch into the cut, sparks began to fly. As the cut progressed I began to wonder if I was grinding metal versus cutting wood. Upon inspection, there is no metal in the wood, that can be seen. A friend suggested that its the density of the ebony that causes the sparks. Before I ripped the 2nd boards I took time to clean up all the sawdust, just in case. The second rip did the same thing only the sparks were immediate. Is this normal? There's no burn marks in the wood and no sign of any metal. The sparks lasted throughout both cuts, so it wasn't like hitting a nail or other object. I cant replicate it with any other type of wood. I later ripped oak, walnut, and poplar with no sparks. .

    Custom Tap Handle

    Hi Everyone This is a Custom Beer Tap Handle of the Hamilton Crest I just completed. Overall dimensions are 8 1/2" tall x 3.75" wide The Intarsia consists of 60 pieces from 9 different woods. The biggest challenge on this project (besides working with lots of little pieces) was bending the 2 ebony bands. I cut the ebony into 3/16" x 1/16" strips then using a woodburning iron heated the strips on the shaft of the iron and formed the circular shapes until they fit. Great trick if you need to make curved shapes. The dime shows the scale of the pieces. Challenging little project

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.
