Recently I met with some Lumberjocks in Arizona and they gave me some material that I turned into projects. The first one is a black Corian grapefruit bowl. The Corian is from LJ Lizzardhead in Tempe, Az. It is 5 layers with 5 minute epoxy in between. A mesquite spigot was glued on to keep the full height of the Corian for the bowl.
The second piece is a door stop made from Osage Orange given to me by LJ Shipwright from Green Valley, Az. I got the design from a fellow Michigan guild member, Gary, who lives about 7 miles away in Eloy, Az. He had a door stopper like it so I turned a piece to use back in Michigan.
The last shot is Gary and me at his house with our show and tell projects that I sent back to the W Mich. Woodworkers Guild. Gary’s house is full of neat projects that he built for his Arizona house. I have invited him to join us on Lumberjocks and share the array of very unique projects he has produced.
This has been a very nice winter meeting a lot of fellow woodworkers in this state!!
The bowl is finished with EEE and Shellawax and the door stop is finished with clear matte spray finish.
