Wedding Cross

Wedding CrossHere is a Wedding Cross I made for one of my clients. The outer cross and base are select pine. As for the center cross, I have no idea what wood that is. It was listed as free firewood. I decided to slice it open and found that beautiful grain pattern. Anyone know what it is?

Good inlay gone horribly wrong

Good inlay gone horribly wrongMy first time on here. I have been checking out Lumberjocks for months. I am so inspired by the collective talent on this website!!Well, this started as a bottle opener project for a friend. This was my first attempt at inlay and I was fairly happy with it but thought he deserved better than a bottle opener. This led me to cut out the inlay to use as an inlay in a cutting board of some type. The second picture shows the cutout on a geometric type board. This seemed way too busy, so I opted for a surfboard type board. This is where it all went wrong because, on the final sanding, I started sanding through the fins and flower. This is undoubtedly because of the multiple times it had been inlaid. I also left it slightly proud for scraping once it was inlaid into the cutting board for final scraping and sanding. I chose to rout out the botched veneers and use some black epoxy when I should have just made new veneers. Live and learn I guess.The final board is walnut, sapele, maple, and OBVIOUSLY black epoxy with mineral oil and beeswax.

Unresolved City Crisis

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Unresolved City Crisis CBS and 60 Minutes is one of my favorite shows. This is the second piece inspired by that show. Last month they did a followup on the cities of Detroit, Flint, Newark, Baltimore and others suffering from leaded pipes in their cities. I would not think this will be very well received in the woodturning world. A challenge to make something to a theme. Thanks to Max Brosi for sharing the knowledge to make the pipe fitting.The piece stands 6 inches tall and about 6 inches in length Pipe fitting is wet Madrone turned as well as the piece of pipe. Fitting is painted with reactive pant. The drop of water is sprayed blue airbrush and then it is dry brushed with silver metallic paint.
This is the second piece from the 6o Minutes show the first being Plastic the Curse of Mother Earth. One more in work and should be done next week. stay tuned. Yes critique and comment welcome.
