In continuation to explore wood and metal combinations, I decided to make pendants. Here's a custom order one of my clients dreamed up. Zebrawood with a &quot;frosted&quot; aluminum insert (hand turned off center on eccentric chuck) and a Jade acrylic cabochon. All 3 pieces were independently hand turned and then permanently adhered together. O.D.=2.75&quot;. Would like to hear your comments and critiques.<br /><br />3 comments http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=11023&title=zebrawood-pendant&cat=500 http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=11023&title=zebrawood-pendant&cat=500 Fri, 16 May 2014 05:16:19 +0000 Big Leaf Maple Burl <a href="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=10922&amp;title=big-leaf-maple-burl&amp;cat=721"><img class="imgborder" title="Big_Leaf_Maple_Burl_PlatterBowl-Frilot.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/data/721/thumbs/Big_Leaf_Maple_Burl_PlatterBowl-Frilot.jpg" alt="Big_Leaf_Maple_Burl_PlatterBowl-Frilot.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: Leo Frilot<br /><br />1 comment http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=10922&title=big-leaf-maple-burl&cat=721 http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=10922&title=big-leaf-maple-burl&cat=721 Sat, 26 Oct 2013 18:39:17 +0000 Box Elder Bowl - Frilot <a href="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=10921&amp;title=box-elder-bowl-frilot&amp;cat=721"><img class="imgborder" title="Box_Elder_Bowl-Frilot.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/data/721/thumbs/Box_Elder_Bowl-Frilot.jpg" alt="Box_Elder_Bowl-Frilot.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: Leo Frilot<br /><br />1 comment http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=10921&title=box-elder-bowl-frilot&cat=721 http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=10921&title=box-elder-bowl-frilot&cat=721 Sat, 26 Oct 2013 18:34:15 +0000 Mahogany and Pecan Cake Plate <a href="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=10860&amp;title=mahogany-and-pecan-cake-plate&amp;cat=500"><img class="imgborder" title="CakePlate_Top_View-small.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/data/500/thumbs/CakePlate_Top_View-small.jpg" alt="CakePlate_Top_View-small.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: Leo Frilot<br /><br />Description}: How do you cover a 9&quot; square cake using a round cake plate? It's simple, but you'll need a larger than normal dome! Doing the math revealed that the dome would have to be at least 12.75&quot; diameter. But that would leave no room for the icing. Voila! Here's one I made using a 14&quot; dome. The base is solid Honduran Mahogany with Pecan foot and accent. Should work very well, pending the cake is not too tall. Dimensions 15&quot; wide and 4.5&quot; tall. Finished with 4 coats of Waterlox. C&amp;C always welcomed!<br /><br />1 comment http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=10860&title=mahogany-and-pecan-cake-plate&cat=500 http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=10860&title=mahogany-and-pecan-cake-plate&cat=500 Tue, 06 Aug 2013 03:25:41 +0000 Mahogany and Pecan Cake Plate <a href="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=10859&amp;title=mahogany-and-pecan-cake-plate&amp;cat=500"><img class="imgborder" title="CakePlate_with_Dome-small.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/data/500/thumbs/CakePlate_with_Dome-small.jpg" alt="CakePlate_with_Dome-small.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: Leo Frilot<br /><br />Description}: How do you cover a 9&quot; square cake using a round cake plate?

It's been a few months since I turned a bowl and couldn't resist this blank. This one had so much character (red flame veining, grey splashes, bug holes, curls, etc, etc). All natural, no stains. About 9&quot; largest diameter. Finished with BLO.

I decided to experiment with filling the bug trails with an aluminum powder/CA glue mixture for aesthetics and stability. I had mixed emotions about the outcome of this one, until I turned the finial/cap from Aluminum and Ebony. Folks gravitated to this piece at 2 shows and it sold on the third attempt. I'm gonna miss it.

I started with 5/8&quot; rod stock and was able to hand-turn all of the external components, except for the clip. (I plan to eventually learn how to make my own clips later.) I also used the brass tubes, the swivel transmission, and the ink cartridge from the kit. The tip, center band, and cap have been brush sanded for the contrasting effect. The tip is compression fitted into the lower barrel. The center band is part of the upper barrel, but made to appear as though it is a separate piece. The clip retainer/cap is threaded into a separate piece that is compression fitted inside the upper barrel. I thoroughly enjoyed making this pen. It's been on my agenda since I started turning metals. I have lots of ideas about how to improve my technique.

I was fortunate to cut the blank to yield near equal amounts of heartwood and sapwood, thus providing a totally different looking vessel when rotated. The bead is also from the same blank and I decided to give it a somewhat oval shape to mimic the vase and to offset the concaveness of the finial. Overall height is about 10.5&quot;, width about 4&quot;. This Pecan tree fell in a homeboy's yard during Gustav (2008) and nearly destroyed his brand new home.

I've turned these 3 metals using a normal setup on my PM 3520 (no special tool rests or fixed cutters), and the EWT Mini Series Carbide Tools (Ci2m, Ci3m, and Ci4m). From left to right: Holly with Brass and a Holly bead, Cherry with Aluminum and a Masur Birch bead, Holly with Bronze and an Asian Ebony bead. The Aluminum and Brass alloys cut nicely. Getting long, loose curls and some chips with the Aluminum and very tight curls and chips with the Brass. The Bronze alloy is very hard and only getting chips. Had to do 3 times the amount of sanding on the Bronze to achieve this finish. Dry cut with tools (no lubricants), sanded starting with 180 grit through 1000, and micromeshed to 12,000 grit. Completed with a paste polish and Rennaisance wax.

Feeling bold, I decided to try out both ideas, in the same week. And here's what came out of it. The vase is Cherry(hybrid) that fell during Hurricane Gustav(2008 Louisiana). Hollowed to a consistent 3/16&quot; wall thickness. The finial is solid aluminum, hand-turned on PM3520 using Easy Wood Tools Mini's(Ci2m,Ci3m,Ci4m). The bead is Masur Birch and is attached with 1/4&quot; mortise and tenon joints. All 4 pieces were hand sanded to 600 grit and then micromeshed to 12,000. I really enjoyed this project and will attempt more in the near future, possibly incorporating other metals. I admit, metal turning by hand was a bit intimidating at first, but I think I managed to produce a quality piece. Scariest thing was the fear of getting metal chips in my VS Drive, so I covered it with a box for added protection. Comments, Critiques, and Questions are Welcomed.

Both bowls measure 9&quot;x9&quot;x4.5&quot;. This piece started as a 9&quot; cube, split in half, rejoined,and turned on 2 axes. Learned about this technique from Irwin Seidman. Very challenging and a true test of technique, equipment, and tooling. All turning done with the Ci1 Easy Rougher and Ci0 Easy Finisher carbide tools. Not a single catch... Whew! I used super strong double stick tape to keep the sections together as well as to hold them as a unit on the waste block. Lots of figure in these pieces including characteristic burl patterns, quilting, spalting, birdseye, insect trails, and natural edge with inclusions.

It functions as a box with the idea that something is tied to the bottom of the cap and is stored in the body of the acorn. (see insert) Measures approximately 4.5&quot; long.

Thus the name CEMBA. You'll see this one again, along with a tutorial, in a popular magazine May 2010. This is one of the most complicated pens I have ever turned. All joinery is extremely tight and cannot be felt, not even with my wife's fingers.

This tree fell during Hurricane Gustav and a set of 8 bowls were turned for the owner as keepsakes. This one had the most character. Approximately 8&quot; x 3&quot; and sealed with 4 coats of BLO.

The Ci1 makes it a breeze. So far I have used Aluminum and Brass. Copper is next and maybe a few other &quot;soft&quot; metals. All have been sanded to 400 then micromeshed to 12,000, friction polished and renaissance waxed. Wood types are shown in photo.

It stands approximately 12&quot; and was hollowed with a 2-3/8&quot; forstener bit. The glass insert fits perfectly with about 1/16&quot; play, just in case the wood decides to move. The couple was quite satisfied, and so was I. :) As always, comments and critiques are welcomed. www.perfectwoodworks.com<br /><br />1 comment http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=7868&title=flame-box-elder-vase&cat=500 http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=7868&title=flame-box-elder-vase&cat=500 Sun, 26 Jul 2009 09:36:16 +0000
