After watching the great video from the woodwhisper http://lumberjocks.com/thewoodwhisperer/blog/17742 I had to try it out with some of my colored laminated wood. 16 inches long, shaft and handle around 1 1/2 inches thick. The video was great, funny and even if you didn’t lathe you would enjoy how well and funny it was. I did. Got some great looks and comments from fellow workers when they seen me finishing this at work. The 4th picture is unfinished, just to show you the contrast between whitewood and finished wood. This was easy to do and now I am much safer from any stray Vampire attacks, well at least while I am near my new blue stake…..
The Hair stick is made from the free bundle of Rosewood that I wrote a wood gloat about some time ago. I love turning this old wood, and every stick looks different when finished, some light and most a chocolate color. Stick is less than 3/4 inches thick, 6 1/2 inches long. You wrap long hair onto it and then stick the end down into the hair bun that you just twisted, looks cool in my wife’s hair.
Haven’t had too much time in the shop lately, just too busy, but that Vampire video was just the last straw to me getting that much needed shop time. I think that I will try one in blood red next? Thanks for reading!
