Hey Buddy’s, Just finished working on a totally Lumberjocks inspired project this week. Just had to make a Lazy Larry with my new bandsaw. So I spent Sunday making a circle cutting jig and after work the rest of the week making two Lazy Larrys.
I was totally amazed by the beautiful Vessels trifern makes and followed his blog on his technique in applying Aniline Dyes. Thank You Joe! I may never use a natural piece of Curly Maple again the possibilities are endless. Thank You!
The LL’s are 20” in diameter with a 14” round base. I used the slimline Lazy Susan hardware from Rockler They work great and are cost effective. I finished these with High Gloss wipe on Poly (which I find myself using more but still proclaim to be a satin finish guy).
The Dye combos were Black, Red and Yellow / Black, Green and Yellow I tried to sand heavier in the centers for a sun burst type effect, made some mistakes for the first try but am a lot more confident now and can’t wait for the next go round.
This has been another Lumberjocks inspired project. Thanks LJs
