1. Woodturn Natural Edge Winged Tea Light From Fig


    from Alan Stratton Added 80 1 0

    This wood came from a fig tree in my front yard. It's a small limb but had to go. I've never turned fig nor heard of anyone turning it. But why not try. Although it's small, it is large enough for a simple tea light. I did not want to just rip the limb in half. I wanted the top surface to be the natural bark from the fig then bend around to a flat on the bottom. This tea light base is 5 inches long and about 2.5 inches in diameter. The light is a battery operated LED tea light. I'd never put a wax candle in a wooden holder. Since the wood is very green or wet it did not absorb much walnut oil. After it dries, I'll apply more oil. then we'll also see how fig turns out.

        • A Triple Multi-Axis Egg Cup Challenge Answered


          from Alan Stratton Added 77 0 0

          http://www.AsWoodTurns.com After last week's egg cup, Larry joked "why not an eccentric egg cup". I took that as a challenge. This triple egg cup is turned from red cedar and finished with beeswax and walnut oil. The turning axis was shifted 1.25" in three directions 120 degrees apart to turn the hollows for the eggs. It could also serve as a jewelry stand, a candy dish, or a display stand. Special safety precautions were considered to ensure that I would not get hurt while turning it. This project is for experienced turners only. Enter your email at http://www.AsWoodTurns.com & I'll let you know when the next easy woodturning project video is ready.

                  • Woodturning An Eccentric Scary Halloween Spider


                    from Alan Stratton Added 161 0 0

                    http://www.AsWoodTurns.com I had a big problem coming up with a Halloween project. My wife came to my rescue suggesting a spider. This spider is an eccentric turning. Offsetting the tail end by nearly a half an inch flattened my pet spider's bottom side so he will not sit high off the ground. I left him unsanded and unfinished wet juniper, appropriate for a rough, scary creature.

                    • My Leather Burnisher Doubles As A Vampire Stake


                      from Alan Stratton Added 174 3 0

                      http://www.AsWoodTurns.com A viewer suggesting making a leather burnisher. I was excited at the suggestion as it is another idea to exercise the eccentric faceplate system. Many would leave the blade as a cone or flatten it on a sander. To me, however, it was an opportunity to take the eccentric faceplate system for a spin. This burnisher is made from cherry about 10 inches long; the bade is about 6 inches; the handle is about 4 inches. The handle contains four grooves to use to burnish edges of leather pieces: 1/8, 1/4, 3/8, and 1/2 inches. It is finished with beeswax and mineral oil. After turning the handle and its grooves, I shifed the axis by 1/4 inch on the blade end by shifting holes in the faceplate. With the burnisher now turning off center, I turned a taper on one size of the blade, then sanded the blade. Then I shifted the axis by 1/4 inch the other way and turned a taper on the opposite side of the blade. Sanding the blade is a challenge because I could not touch it directly. I sanded with long strips of cloth backed sandpaper. Enter your email at http://www.AsWoodTurns.com & I'll let you know when the next woodturning project video is ready.
