Default Well, That Was Fun! 30 Hours/2 weeks

No finished pens to show as these are in the mail to the East Coast.

I had not turned these finals for quite a few months, so some skills had to be relearned.

- Turn the dust collector off when the finial is almost turned off!
- Parting tool needs to be very sharp or the finial goes from 20 segments to 3 very quickly.
- Even after turning the dust collector off, sweep the shop floor before parting the finial off.

30 Hours over 2 weeks.

Comments, critique and snide remarks on my relearned skills are welcomed!

These are great Mark! I'm pretty sure Santa will be bringing me a band saw this year, and I'm going to be giving these a shot. Where do you source your sheets of wood? Do you cut them yourself? I've found some places online that carry veneer, such as Ocooch hardwoods.

Mark aka.....“Mr. Precision”!

The words, Outstanding and Exquisite, come to mind while looking at your segmenting. I am quite sure they will be well received.
Thanks for the pics of the build....they are icing on the cake!

Hi Ronnie, this is my source: https://www.dndhardwoodsonline.com/

I'll start with the thin stock, cut into approx 1" x 6" strips. Then run through a Byrnes thickness sander to insure all the strips are the same thickness. e.g., start with .0625", sand to about .060".

Have fun with the new band saw. I'd love one, but still learning how to use what I have

Hi Charlie, you are to blame! These are going to your friend. I'm glad he let me turn the finials. My success rate was about 50%, but I had enough material for about 9.
