  • My Bird feeder

    You all may have seen this somewhere else. My version is cut out of Juniper and had I relised it was so hard of wood, I would have sent it to Merle as I
    know he loves real hard woods., Much like a Hard Maple.

    Any way I have Sawn to basic shape using a Sabre saw, Chiseled, using my large gouges and flat carpenter chisels, and none of my knives will work at all.
    .
    I had to resort to my power grinders and powered chisel units. The original log was about 8" in dia, and 3' long and had dried for about 3 years.

    I saw a picture of this on another page and thought it maybe a good project. Now into the 4th week, now am looking at a finish and am going to put real Wheat kernels in the palm of the hand..

    Any thoughts or ideas ??


    Thanks

    Hi, Chuck, Ha,Ha, no thanks on the Hard Wood. You have stuck with it and now you have a Piece that will hold the Detailing for Years. Good Job and you will remember the Effort you gave to Finish it . Merle

                    Hi Chuck
                    Well for a man that like a challenge you look to have got yourself a doozy hehehe. I love really hard wood. It burns real slow so you don't have to stoke the fire too often hehehe.

                    Unless it has fantastic, nice pattern grain then it is all on!! Took 40 hours to hand carve an archtop guitar back. Was it worth it? Hell Yeah!!. Stunning wood.

                    These things become a labour of love. Pain from all the mallet whacking is just part of the process hehehe.

                      Well, young man, I have tested a sample of the Red part with Turning Wax. And it is delisious looking now on to the "hard part" looking at the light color..
                      Thanks fro your note
