This is a wooden model that I made for a friend and customer. Made from Maple and painted. The roof is pine and painted. No plans were used in making this, it is made from reference photos. The lower part of the front end is aluminum. Exhaust pipes are solid bendable aluminum.
This is a scaled down version of the one I made previously. It is designed for 13 gallon bags. The base is 1/2” Birch Ply and the top is soft maple. The finish is GF Gel Stain (American Oak) with GF Gel Topcoat (Satin). I don't know why the pics are sideways.
This is a gift for Dick Versluis, from our woodworking guild, who acquired a lot of cedar from a 150 yr old pickle vat that was disassembled years ago and stored in his neighbor's barn . I got one plank and wanted to show Dick what it looked like turned.I stumbled across a You Tube video from Sprague Woodturning ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kv8RD9LvS0M ) where the guy was inlaying twisted copper wire in the rim of his bowl..so I just had to incorporate that into this one. I stripped the insulation off about 4 ft of 14 gauge solid copper wire and twisted it the my drill just as he did. He used soapstone and I used turquoise for the added fill inlay.This bowl is 7” x 2” high and finished with Danish Oil and buffed and waxed.Below are some of the process shots:Cheers, JimTwisting the wire: Fitting it to the diameter of the groove Glued in with CA glue Adding the turquoise and CA glue
