Basket illusion

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Basket illusioninspired by Jullian project https://www.lumberjocks.com/projects/412539 , my first attempt at beading work on lathe. Started with a furniture coach leg blank which was given to me and I thought I'd practice. Didn't realize how much time it would take. 1/8” beading tool, woodburn (made my own tips from brass tubing formed to fit cheap woodburner), india ink markers, shellac, then flat spray finish.
Watched Harvey Meyer Basket Illusion youtube to find techniques. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6MjDJ-M5XDM

2020 starting out great

Furnished content.

2020 starting out great2020 is starting out great. i decided to go finish a skirting job on a mobile home that we started yesterday. i got to visiting with the home owner and mentioned the three nice walnut trees he had in the back yard and said i would gladly remove them for him if he wanted to get rid of them and he just laughed. he came back later as i was finishing up and said if i wanted to go look at the pile of logs he had on his other lot i could and if i could use them i could have them.
so i had to satisfy my curiosity and go take a look… this is what i found. a nice pile of mostly walnut logs with a couple of poplar to boot. he said i could take what i wanted if i could use them. just taking them would make me feel like i was steeling to i tolld him i would build him a nice live edge coffee table to put in his new house. i still think i got the better deal. going friday morning to remove the logs and take them to my sawyer to make some boards.
