Our turning club is holding a little contest in a month or two. Being brand new to turning and the club, I don’t really know what to expect. A week or two back I went looking around the net for a simple but maybe a little unusual turning subject. I wanted something different from the same old goblets and candle sticks you see all the time. I found a web site of a guy that had used auto cad to draw up some 3D images. I don’t know if he ever put any of his drawing into form or not, but this phone caught my eye, easy enough I thought and with the right colours of wood, it should show well…..... so I thought. !
Working from a picture taken from this web site, I built this old time phone. The project went not too bad, but I did mess it up in a few spots due to my inexperience, however the wife likes it so I guess it’s a keeper. I’m not totally happy with it. If time will permit I may just do it over…... Maybe.
Constructed from maple and walnut, consisting of ten separate turnings, then assembled and finished with wipe on Polly. ....14” tall…...
