Here is a photo that I promised to share back on day 166... the apple boxes. Here we have 2 "full" boxes and one "half" box. The "full" box is 20" x 12" x 8". The "half" box is, obviously, half that size! This is the primer, they are pretty much ready for the top coat of paint and then they will be put to use.

Day 168

I've been working on my mustache.  I think I have it just right now!

 

It's a cardboard mustache that was part of a pizza box - Screamin' Sicillian pizza.  Pizza was good.  And the mustache is something special too!

I am ready to start another project in the shop. Not a lathe projecct this weekend. Making apple boxes.

In this photo you can see I've got the plywood blade on the saw, with the magnetic angle finder to square it up, the cut sheets printed for the correct cuts from 3 sheets of plywood stock (Android CutList Optimizer app) and my 5 measured and cut story sticks. Story sticks let you quickly reset the saw fence for perfectly consistant cuts.

Apple boxes are used for photography and film making. I'm sure I'll have a future photo of the day with the finished boxes... so just be patient!

I transformed the blank shown on day 155 into a very handsome travel mug. Many firsts on this project - first staved blank, first large hollowing project, first turning with critical dimensions, and first lacquer finish. None of these are too difficult, and I'm very happy with the results on of these items.

The Mimosa trees are blooming. They will be pretty for a couple of weeks, then they will go back to their ugly selves for the rest of the year. Messy, invasive, pest filled trees... but they are interesting and even pretty for about 2 weeks a year.

Creating the octagon turning blank was new - this is my first try at a blank like this. Turning mixed wood blanks is interesting to me, so that is what I'm experimenting with.
I hope the joints are good enough. The wall thinkness at the top is going to be a little over an 1/8 of an inch. Once again, I hope it holds together while I turn this down to te size and shape I need!

I completed my first bowl on the lathe today. I think it came out very nice! I wish I knew what the light wood is... it was in the budget section of the wood working store without a label. It has some nice figure and grain. It also has some cracks that had me worried it would break up while I was working it. But it held together to make a very nice first bowl project for me. The darker wood is some cherry wood I had from other projects. I like the contrast in this bowl.

Should be a nice bowl...

If it hangs togethere - there is a large crack in the blank...   I'll see how deep it goes.  Will this ruin my first bowl?
