Illuminated Lettering Part 2

Illuminated Lettering Part 2Last year I started this project, but got pulled away LOL.
Well I got back to it and finished a few of the letters.
These letters are based on the designs of Owen Jones (1809-1874) 'One Thousand and One Initial Letters' Dover Publications
I also launched my online store JaffaRoad at etsy.com. Please visit and see more pictures of the letters, Thanks.
This Fall I will also be opening the Chattanooga Carving CO-OP. A place for trading tools and carving classes.
Happy Summer,
Dan

120 MM projectile

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


120 MM projectileAlthough there's a Jet mini lathe in my shop it belongs to my wife. She got hooked on making pens and small bowls a few years ago. It was a great excuse to buy a lathe, a bunch of turning tools and accessories for her. She took lessons too but the thrill has passed. It mostly gathers dust.A Navy buddy of mine needed a projectile turned for his 120 MM shell casing. He gave me a long chunk of a white birch tree trunk that he had carved on thinking he could make it without benefit of a lathe. It didn't go well. You can see his efforts on one half of the trunk in the second photo.The mini lathe bed wasn't long enough to turn the projectile with a slightly smaller diameter base for insertion into the casing. I turned the projectile as one piece using a face plate and live center. I then turned a maple base which was attached to the projectile turning. My portion of the trunk still had all its bark. It flew every where when I hit it with my 1” roughing gouge.His efforts didn't go to waste. I used his half to fix a three legged chair !

Picture frame

Furnished content.

Picture frameSo my cabinet maker friend says to me, “You want the end grain too? What are you going to do with end grain?” This is my answer. A picture frame with pictures of my family to hang up at my day job so I can be reminded why I go to work.
I took the end cuts he had after he made butcher block counters. I milled them up and then I took 4 squares of Walnut to put in the corners. I finished it with wipe-on poly and used picture frame wire hardware for the back. It's going to look good in the office.
Thanks for looking!
