Back Flow Incense Burner/Inside-Out Turning

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Back Flow Incense Burner/Inside-Out TurningI wanted to make another back flow incense burner but not a typical waterfall type so I designed this one like water falling through and arch. First I needed the arch which I made from an inside out turning.Then I turned the floating base with a recess for the arch ( to center it) and which is doweled and glued to the base. After finishing the the wood with many coats of clear matte spray ( to get it to come to a satin sheen), I poured turquoise chips in the bottom and flooded the pool with clear epoxy resin. The base is 5 1/2” round and the whole thing is 7 1/4” high. The last two shots were the raw wood pieces as they came out of the lathe.Below is a video of the burner working.

After Christmas Bowl

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


After Christmas BowlThe next bowl in my Christmas Bowls series—which was supposed to be finished by Christmas but at this rate looks like it will stretch into next summer. The three previous bowls can be seen here.This bowl was intended for my nephew and his wife, who are devout, so I decided to carve a Bible verse into the rim. I carved the bowl down somewhat flatter than the other bowls to make the rim big enough to accommodate the verse. The interior of the bowl is carved with a texture. Here I am working on that:
I chose a part of the famous verse from 1 Corinthians by the Apostle Paul. The letter shapes I've used are based upon the carvings on Trajan's Column in Rome, which dates from before 100 AD. Paul probably left Rome before the column was started, but maybe not, and so I imagine that perhaps he looked upon those letters before he wrote his letters to the Corinthians. Here are the letters in process:
It took quite a bit longer to carve the letters than I expected. Although they may look big, in fact many of the parts were quite thin or small and so it was pretty painstaking to carve them. (And zebrawood is a little stringy, which didn't help.)After carving I painted in the letters with gold sign paint. The bowl was then finished with butcher block conditioner (mineral oil + beeswax).

Old Fashion Game Boards

Furnished content.

Old Fashion Game BoardsThose who might have grown up in the old days might have played on something like these? Only thing is that these are not that old.After looking at similar styles on Pinterest and other online sites. I came up with my ideas. Each board is made from re-claimed ceder fence pickets. Glued together, clamped and sanded I cut to final size. Using painters tape, acrylic paints I created my designs. lastly I would rough sand to distress as you see. Finally I coat with paste wax.
