Edit-: and the newly designed pen holder,i can't keep up with you :lol:
Ah, I like this one. Of all the pieces you have made from these millions of offcuts you are trying to clear ( :wink: ) this is the one that works best for me, really nice box. Love the way you have hidden where the lid is. One idea ripe for nicking - ta!CHJ":k5afsygg said:Been pottering again today.
Walnut and Oak
Yes Paul, not much finer but a sharper one from Axi soon after I had it. Blade does not do much work but the motor gets a start -stop hammering.Paul.J":2od6mis3 said:......Have you changed the blade to a finer cut one since you have had it??
The lid idea came about during the putting together Gordon, mainly as a method of reducing the bittiness of too many different pieces and shades of wood.gus3049":2od6mis3 said:....... Love the way you have hidden where the lid is. One idea ripe for nicking - ta!
Strangely enough neither am I Doug, although I appreciate the skill involved in producing intricate small parts accurately enough for some of the more exotic designs they often smack of "look what I can do" to me, and that's not just sour grapes because I don't have the skill, patience or equipment to do them.Doug B":2od6mis3 said:...I`m not a big fan of segmented work, ....
Absolutely, there is so much work that seems to be because they can rather than making something beautiful, balanced and artistic (better not get into dovetail guitars here ) As is so often the case, less is more I reckon (says he who is into piercing, texturing etc)CHJ":14j6eosb said:And that's a driving aim whilst I'm playing with these bits, to try and put something together that's decorative without going over the top in my eyes, others of course may see no difference.
Nice again Chas but for me, the joy of the first one was that the split for the lid wasn't obvious, The change of colour for this one rather spoils the illusion. Is that green natural??CHJ":3dnn5czn said:Something similar, just to prove the first one was not a fluke.
Might know someone wanted "one like that" just to put me on the spot.
Walnut & Oak 125mm dia.
Ain't wood grand??CHJ":nlv1z2jt said:Gordon, the colours are natural, no sign of green in natural light.
The shade difference is not so obvious either, but the contrast does change considerably dependant upon whether the top section is viewed end or side grain and the lid segments aligned or not,
The Brown can change between café au lait and Cafétière dependant on light/viewing direction.
