It has been a while since I posted anything. Life has kept me out of the shop until recent weeks.

Here are a few of my recent turnings:

1. Bear Bryant Stamp on Bloodwood, Gold Sierra Pen – Yes, I am an Auburn Grad, but still enjoyed this one.
2. Spectraply Sierra Pens – Red & White Gold Sierra – Blue & Orange Gold Sierra with Stylus
3. Deer Antler & 270 Cartridge Pen – Stand is Deer Antler on Yellow Pine
4. Deer Antler & 308 Bullet Pen – Stand is Walnut with 30-06 Cartridges & Bullets
5. Red & Blue Spectraply 4-in-One Screwdriver

I have a few more things to turn for graduation gifts. Then I hope to have some fun with some flat work projects.

Thanks for looking.

Nice looking projects. I’ve used water decals before but like the stamp idea. How many coats of CA did you have to apply to finish it?

Took 12 coats to level the tear lines. Polished to 12000 micro mesh.

Thanks Tim. I was born/raised outside of Birmingham and am a die hard War Eagle fan but the Bear Bryant pen really brings back some memories. Nice job, I may have to give stamps a try.
