Just finished this pecan platter from a crotch. Not very thick , maybe quarter inch. Tried Mahoney walnut oil for first time . This is an interesting utility finish. Does not look like it buffs out. Good for a delicate project and gives a flat finish, no shine ok maybe a little. Easy to apply.
Have had the first turn of this bowl on the shelf for 3-4 years and finally getting it done. Got the second turn done on outside and decided to cut a grove and use inlace. Only had a little turcoise so ordered jade. Finished sanding today and went to 3000 with Abralon. This is done nice stuff , it makes the pecan shine.
Had something unusual with Fresh pecan log yesterday. Limb came down Sunday and I turned two sections yesterday. The cambium layer (just under the bark) peeled off like a wrapper. This log was covered in a fern growth an this growth and some. Bark peeled easily by hand. Have turned green pecan before and never anything like this happpened.
Who We Are
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!
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.
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.
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.
