Thread: 1st PM project.....

  1. #1

    1st PM project.....

    Well....it took me some time but after 3 unsuccessful tries, I finally got a completed project off the Mustard machine.

    The 1st 3 I just didn't like my form.....so I chucked into the trash bin. Then today I got 2 done with what I consider an acceptable form. This one is going to a fellow turner in an ornament exchange....


    4 1/4" long......1 3/4" wide at the widest......Top....IdahoIdunnowoodgiventomebyaloca llyniceguy ...Bottom mapleIthinkgiventomebythesameniceguy. I need to make one of these for the guy who gave me the wood!

    I like that very much, Ken. But that bird must have been tricky to turn.

    Gord.......turning those feathers is a booger! You can do it with your skew but it has to be SHARP......SHARP......SHARP!

    Looks real good, Ken. Man, you really pushed the capacity limits of that new PM, huh?

    Kidding aside, congrats on the first Mustard project. How was it to turn on?

    Ken, I'm really glad you found the right shape, else another one for the trash bin. But this one deserved a better place, very very nice, well done

    Very nice Ken. I like the extra touch of the perch with the cardinal on it.

    cheers

    Congrats on getting your lathe up and running Ken! The birdhouse ornament looks great! I've made a few and they quickly become addictive!

    One question for you: Did you have to build a ballast box and add sand to counteract the out-of-balance situation cused by the out-of-round birdhouse blank?
