  1. 9x2 plate from Bois D'arc. Wood received from a barter with an AAW member. I sent a box full of Pecan, and in return I got a box of Bois D'arc from Iowa. 300mm Macro grain detail .40
  2. Finished them up today. Took longer than I thought they would. Wife and I had a nasty bug last week. Worst cough I can remember having for a while. Doc said, "just something that's going around". Crazy. Anyway, I'm happy with these. Guy hasn't seen them yet so I hope he is too.
  3. In the "what's on your lathe" topic I mentioned that I had a piece of brass to make some ferrules. I made around 20 1"od and same for 3/4" od ferrules. Mostly hacksaw and file work and it sure made me wish I had a small metal lathe like Dan. A while back I turned some mallets for a local wood carver and he mentioned he'd like to have a set of handles as well. That's what the ferrules are for. I don't really like commission work but he was pretty adamant he wanted me to do them. Shot him what I thought was a high price and he increased how many he wanted, go figure. He wanted them out of Osage, same as his mallets. Fortunately I had enough to do them. The ferrules are a press fit and that takes some time to get right but once that's done the handles are a pretty simple profile. He said he wanted a set of matching handles, ended up to be 16 total. I told him "matching" was a relative term and there would be minor differences. He said that's why he want's hand made. It is his intention to only use them when he's demoing. 11 more to go, he doesn't know it but I intend to burn his name and a small graphic on the handles. The burn lines will be different on each one to help him identify them if the edge is hidden. Had a minor set back this morning though, blew a tire.
  4. Turned a carver's mallet from some osage orange that was sent to me by a friend. OO is known as Bois D'arc in these parts and pronounced BO-DARK in Texan. .40
  5. I turned a quick bowl out of that Osage orange I was given. I turned it thin and dried it for a week. Then I thinned it out a little more, sanded and finished with wipe on poly. It didn’t turn out as orange as I thought it would.

    Free wood

    I called a local mill and asked about some free scraps. The guy was really nice. We ended up talking for an hour or more. He gave me a walnut log and one he called Osage orange. This is all I had room for. He said I could come back and get more when I need it.
