It's a Bloody Cracked Pot

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


It's a Bloody Cracked PotThe park maintenance guy brought in this piece of a citrus tree ( lemon, orange or grapefruit? ) and asked me if it could be made into something. It was pretty ugly as you can see from the 4th photo..the pot was made from the bottom half of that branched trunk. It had 3 different shapes as it got whittled down but there was no getting away from the big cracks. I had to tape it up to bore out the inside. Instead of filling all the cracks with inlay, I painted them red..hence the blood pot! I'll try anything once. It is 6 1/2” high and 5 1/2” in diameter at the top.It is finished with semi gloss lacquer.Cheers, Jim

Bottle openers

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Bottle openersI was starting to accumulate quite a bit of small scrap material so I made a batch of bottle openers. Species used are walnut, maple, cherry, hickory, paduak, wenge, and purple heart. Sanded up to 120/220/320 grit using a diy sanding mop on the drill press. Drilled a recess for the insert using a 1-13/16 forstner bit and then a 1-1/8 forstner bit. Added a 3/16 hole w a light countersink. Coated with 5-6 coats satin polyurethane aerosol.
