  1. Seeing a thread about palm wood jogged my memory. This piece (not my work) is turned from "Ponga", which comes from "Mamaku", a Tree Fern native to New Zealand. The vase insert, however, is made from that old standby known Down Under as "Plastic"! John
  2. Once in awhile, I will stop at goodwill and check the wood pieces for quality wood that I can use to make turnings with. This morning I found this candle holder made of a beautiful dark wood, made in India. It was more than a foot high and about 6" dia at the base. It was made a lot different than I thought. The base had threads turned on it. Lot of bother and unnecessary work. There was 4 spindles between the base and top. I am puzzled on how they were attached. I cut one with the hack saw, it was so tight I was afraid that it had metal inside. It was all wood and I could not find evidence of where a hole was drilled, same with the spindles, no evidence that the ends were turned to fit in a hole.
  3. On my birthday, my daughter bought me a lot of different wood blocks at Rockler. Some exotic, some very hard, some very soft. They were all labeled with abbreviations and I couldn't guess most of them. Anyway i was wondering how I could use a lot of them on one project. Then I remembered a large wooden picture I made years ago. It was flowers cut out of different woods. So I decided to make this one a tree. It came out OK, except when I sprayed a finish on it, some of the colors didn't come out as I thought. The two lower limbs on the left look like the same color, however when they were unfinished they were very different. I'm giving it to my daughter for her birthday
