I just finished this up yesterday. I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out.
What did you finish it with?
Thank you sir! I rubbed a coat of BLO on it, let it dry really good and then about ten coats of lacquer. I would have preferred to use a satin finish but my wife loves a glossy finish.
Wonderful job Frank I really really like it a lot. Where do you get your burl anyway? We have had some for pen blanks but that is all.
Thanks Arlin. I get most of my burl from a guy on facebook. His account is Magic Under the Bark. Check him out he has some really good prices. It's mostly Cherry and Maple burl.
Well that option is out since I do not have a facebook account. My wife tried to show me and it is hard enough figuring this site an woodnet out. After she seen my absolute confussion she told me NOT to get an account.
Well, let's just solve that problem. Tell me what you're interested in and I'll look for you.
I do not know what we need since we have never done one before???? Maybe something of a bowl or vase size I guess. I also could use a ton of advise since I seen a lot of them done but do not know the trouble areas to look for. On a pen we just put some CA glue and poof it was good to go. lol
That's the interesting thing about a burl, you never know what you're going to encounter as you turn it. I'l see if I can find you a good one and I'll let you know.
Thanks Frank. Let me know how much and I will see what she can scrape together.
I do not have an allowance for the next 18 months due to it going to help pay for the new Air Con and Furnace of which we did not have last year.
Don't worry about the cost Arlin. I'll find one that I like and the cost will be on me. I appreciate you helping the vets and want to help in any way that I can.
Does this person have an email address you can PM me with? A few things we can never get is Cherry and Maple and burls and wondering if this person will work with us to supply us at a modest price?
I just sent him a PM on Facebook asking for his email address. I'l forward it to you when I get it. His stuff is priced very reasonable.
Can you PM me with that info and not put it out in the public. Lot of people do not like spam. Then you can delete this.
Sure. This guy likes all of the publicity he can get so I thought others on here might want to contact him but I'll remove it just in case.
It is OK with me if he wants it there I just thought of his security.
