    Here is one I finished a couple weeks ago on the Ringmaster. Has yellowhart, padauk, cherry, and riverbirch. The paduak bleed over when the lacquer was applied. The padauk has open endgrain pores and if you want a mirror finish it would take a lot more work.
  2. Just finished this one. Made of exotic wood scraps and the background dark wood stripes is Burnt Poplar, I finally found a use for the small board I had. I had forgotten that one of the dark red woods drives my allergy nuts. Even tho I used protection, it got me again. Its 8"x10"
  3. So I apologize if this topic comes up so often your tired of seeing it...... but Do you have a favorite source for buying exotic turning stock? I've been using Woodcraft and Cormark. Any other favorite places to go? Thanks
  4. I have had to privilege to meet a husband and wife turning team several months back at First Friday. They invited me out to their shop which was not too far from our house. But as I was covered up with projects and recovering from the knee surgery I didn't make it out. I found out later that just after we talked he was diagnosed with cancer and lived about three weeks longer. His wife is having a hard time going back into the shop since this was something they both loved doing and doing together. She had a lathe and he had lathe and they would spend a lot of time in there both of them turning and enjoying time together. She contacted me again and ask if I would come out and look at the wood and items they have and see if there was anything I might be interested in. I am posting a picture of the turning blanks here and a price list. The prices are list price and she will take 50% off. If you see something you are interested in you can let me know and I will purchase it for you and ship it. You will need to pay for the wood and the shipping cost. Here are pictures I took last night of what she has and list. 8x8x2 Wenge 18.00 6x6x2 (3) Wenge 10.00 ea 6x6x2 (2) Canary 10.00 ea 8x8x2 (4) Canary 13.00 ea 9x9x2 (4) Canary 16.00 ea 8x8x3 Canary 19.00 13x13x2 Canary 34.00 11x12x2 Redheart 25.00 12x12x2 Redheart 27.00 13.5x13.5x2 Sapele 30.00 6x6x2 Bloodwood 13.00 12,75x12.75x2 Bloodwood Octogon 32.00 13x13x2 Bloodwood 35.00 6x6x2 Bolivian Rosewood 12.00 12x2x3.25 Curly/quilted Maple 158.00 10x10x2 (2) Zebra 30.00 ea 7x8.5x2 Zebra 18.00 9x9x3 Blackheart Sassafras 42.00 9x9x2 (2) Sapele 10.00 ea 10.5x10.5x2 Sapele 12.00 6x6x2 Redwood 10.00 6x6x2 Ambrosia 10.50 8x8x2 (3) Cocobolo 30.00 ea 6x6x2 (12) Cocobolo 23.00 ea 13x13x2 Jatoba 20.00 9x9x2 Jatoba 10.00 5x5x2 (2) Ebony 35.00 ea 6x6x2 Pink Ivory 74.00 5x5x2 (2) Pink Ivory 55.00 8x8x2 Birdseye 33.00 6x6x2 (2) Tulip 40.00 Remember the price is half of what you see listed. The numbers in () is how many she has of that size so the amount at the end of that line is the price for one. There may be other items as she has time to go through it all and decide what to do. Thanks
  5. I have been enjoying all the images in our new gallery and lately one of our members is really putting on a show for us! I'd like to give Mike Mathieu a big hand for his instarsia work. Great job Mike! Absolutely beautiful! Click on image to be taken to Mikes Gallery.
  6. I wanted to show you guys one of my projects that I am proudest of. My grandson loved firetrucks and I decided to make him one for Christmas a couple of years ago. I did some research on the web and found out that there is no standard type firetruck. When one is ordered, they get what they want on it for specific purposes. So I took some things from many pictures and made one up. I used Padouk, Yellow hart, curly Maple, Mahogany and what ever small scraps of exotic wood I could include. I wanted it to be played with, so I have a hose with a hand crank and an extending ladder. I turned the fire extinguishers on the rear and each gauge is a hole drilled out and filled with maple. My grandson loved it then and still does. He played with it a lot then, but has now moved on to the computer, soccer, bicycles, etc. Now it is in a special place in his room to keep it safe.
