Woodturning Kindling – I suppose it was always going to be πŸ’©

I just recently had a log shipment, in addition to a couple of bags of kindling, I also had some resin that needed using up, so I'm afraid I could not withstand whacking them together to make the most beautiful hollow form I've ever made or is it I cant make my mind up …

  1. Another interesting project. I often wonder about the time you spend cleaning up afterward.

    1. ​@@AndyPhillipWoodturning I keep telling Hubby and the son at home to do that in the kitchen. I can’t cook much anymore and can’t abide a messy kitchen, so I avoid it until I hear the dishwasher being filled. Like the old man was going to ever wash up πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚!

  2. At first glance of the thumbnail I thought I was looking at a bundle of string cheeseπŸ˜‚

  3. Andy,Andy. I don’t know what to say.your mind works in some mysterious ways. I hope your cleanup guy gets paid a bunch to clean up that mess.LOL.good little video as always.just keep doing what you do,but next time,don’t do that LOL.πŸ˜ŽπŸ˜ŽπŸ˜ŽπŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

  4. This piece is actually really cool, I love it. Great work yet again Spiderman πŸ‘πŸ» πŸ˜€

  5. If the resin was orange it would definitely be a pumpkin πŸŽƒ great work as always πŸ‘ πŸ‘

  6. Really cool visual texture, & contrast between top & side sections, as well as lovely elegant curve! Definitely not crap, I reckon πŸ˜†

  7. Beautiful result Andy. The pattern the pitch made is quite stunning.. Thanks for sharing your time talent and adventure.πŸ‘πŸ€ŸπŸͺ‘🎨

  8. I love your imagination as much as your talent. That came out beautifully! It’s so different yet familiar. That probably doesn’t make any sense to anyone who isn’t me, but at least you know I’m bloody impressed yet again!

    I’ve shown the old man a few of your videos (I swear he watches you in secret because I told him he should watch you every week! He wouldn’t openly do what I told him to πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚.) He’s taken up woodwork again (disability has taken over his ability to renovate cars anymore, but over all the decades I’ve known him, he’s been very comfortable with woodworking. I think he did a CSE in it. Not a GCSE. I said it was decades 🀣).

    With a bit of help he built himself another shed at the foot of the garden and disappears down there most weekends. He actually refurbished a beautiful jewellery box for me for Xmas 😊 You’re a good role model!

    He’s pretty much addicted to auctions, and over the last couple of years he’s got himself a few lathes of different types and sizes (he has a smaller wooden one as a decoration on the front windowsill in the living room!) and he’s having a ton of fun. It keeps him off the streets lol. He was even able to buy a huge lot of veneers of many woods (he’s actually a qualified tree surgeon and consultant, so he knows a fair bit about identifying wood) for something stupid like Β£15-20. He used some flame mahogany to refurbish a Victorian writing slope which he keeps his other project stuff in (watches. I don’t know why, but he’s into old watches. πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ)

    For others who are inspired by Andy, particularly if you’re starting out, local auctions are fantastic sources of wood, either as restoration projects or like above, veneers. It goes from the sublime to the ridiculous (if you’re an auction newbie, go scope one out before deciding to join in on one, and don’t forget the mark up!) Many auction houses clear out the homes of the deceased or those who have to go into nursing homes. Their hobby equipment can often be sold at a fraction of its real value (I find that a bit heartbreaking, but you may as well buy it because someone else will otherwise), and it can save you _hundreds_ while collecting tools and materials. Watch out for “how to” books if there’s an obvious job lot of hobby stuff. They’re usually there in their own lot! Don’t turn them down just because they’re old!

    1. Your hubby sounds a lot like me 😊. I started out with a Shop smith and then went to an antique lathe that I retrofitted with a treadmill motor. I hope you both continue to find fun things to keep you busy πŸ™β€οΈ

  9. Beautiful piece, Andy! Really well done! πŸ˜ƒ
    Stay safe there with your family! πŸ––πŸ˜Š

  10. Bet if this was in an Art Gallery, would sell quickly !
    Not my particular cup of tea, but beautiful workmanship !

  11. They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder. You never know until you try.πŸ‘πŸ‘Œ

  12. Kinda of out in the weird realm for your work but the more I look at it the more I like it. Great work as always…❀❀❀
