I was recently given a very pretty length of New Zealand tawa, with a lot of flecking. Turned a ring from a small piece and two flecks positioned themselves perfectly :)I'm also getting a lot better at putting veneer cores inside turned rings hurrah!
here is my most recent full size bed I made for myself the bed consist of sold 3×3 cherry post a red oak top cap custom made cherry corbels I made myself the headboard is a mixture of hickory and cherry with ash and white cedar trim the bed rails are 6/x4×6inch ash with a 2×3 ash top cap I also made my own red oak post caps for the corners of my foot board the bed is put together with all hidden fasteners the finish is a boiled linseed oil 3 coats I must say this was a challenge for me with my shop and having limited tools but I think it turned out great most of all my wife loves it hope you all I enjoy I posted before and after pics thanks
This weekend a brand broke off my daughter's maple tree and took out the power line. I cut it up on Monday and brought back a branch and turned this goblet for her to remember the storm !It is maple, 7 1/2” high and 3” in diameter and has 3 captured rings.It is unfinished because it is still pretty wet.Cheers, Jim
