Thank you Evan
Excellent work, Patrick!
Thank you Andrew
WOW, impressive skills Patrick
Thanks Dave ! It's a break from handle turning and an Avenue I always wanted to explore . I'm trying to source more larger diameter wood to male more of this style . I also want to try a few smaller variety for shave soaps .
I'm amazed at what talent all you turners have. Props
I can't speak for the others but I think mine comes from a desire to create more than skill or talent . I'm still learning as I go about this hobby. Thanks for the kind words Dave
Here are some of my recent works.
A razor handle for a friend.
And 2 TIG torch back caps for another friend.
Very nice work Patrick!
Thank you Sir. When I get good enough at TIG welding I will make myself a few back caps.
If any wood turners/carvers want to up their game a bit, casting pewter inlay in wood was apparently a thing back in the day.
Here's a link to a video:
If anyone does try this, you'll need to either use the copper foil trick shown in the video or use a lot of soldering flux. Also metal + moisture = spatter. Always wear a face shield. You never know.
Also, vintage pewter is just as easy to melt and use as modern pewter, and can be cheaply found. Well ventilated space, etc., etc.
Beautiful!! I am a welder and the lightbulb went off in my head when I seen those TIG caps .
I may have to try this some day !
Thanks. You just need a sacrificial back cap for the brass threaded insert. Please tag me if you make one and post it here to be sure I see it.
