Zebra R10

24 May 2017 - 11:49 AM

Good afternoon!

I just spent 20 bucks on an impulse buy (thanks, Flatband) so I gotta recoup it before the lady finds out! This is an R10 at 100% size, cut from rough sawn zebra wood and sanded to 600 before it sucked up a whole mess of Danish oil.

I added about a half an inch to the length of the handle and left a bit more beef on the forks for strength.

Asking 30 shipped.

Thanks for swinging by!

Oil Color Experiment

24 May 2017 - 10:06 AM

Good morning!

Wanted to see if I could darken some Danish oil for a certain project. On the left is oil mixed at a 1:1 with coffee grounds and left to sit for 6 hours. It's currently draining through a coffee filter.

I like it. Bonus, it smells nice!

Figure 8, in Olive.

Good evening!

So I have seen a couple of the figure 8 climbing rings being modded into frames and to be honest I think it's cool as heck. I don't have the aluminum hardware, but I DO have this Olive slab with a hole drilled in it.

The squares on the grid paper are 1/4 inch in size, I figured it would be appropriate to leave the forks a little chunky for strength.

I know my builds have been all over the place lately! I've made and finished 4 nattys, 2 bamboo r10 board cuts and 2 HDPE Axioms in a day and a half. Most as gifts, I'm bringing friends and family into the hobby. Just can't help myself.

Is there anything I ought to keep in mind regarding a frame like this before I get to sawing? Board is just proud of 5/8 thick.

Thanks for swinging by.

A surprise from my girlfriend

22 May 2017 - 11:34 AM

I've been with Giana for 8 years, we're highschool sweethearts. She's crafty too, though she prefers sewing and painting to woodwork like myself. Since we live in a shoebox apartment we have to stash our supplies in the small nook that would have been a dining area just beside the open kitchen.

Last night when I came home from work she had completely blown it up and reconfigured it into a small working area for me. She said she knew how much fun I was having with my new hobby and wanted to help.

Now I don't have much (basically everything I own is pictured below) but truly I am a fortunate man. And hopefully this will help me increase the quality of my work.

Occularis for an Olive board cut?

21 May 2017 - 05:35 PM

I want to get my hands on an occularis frame. Want is for an Axiom.

Don't have the funds to get a new one, but I have a lovely slab of wood waiting for shaping, just tell me what frame you'd like (within reason of course). I'll cut, shape and sand to 1200 then oil soak it.

Thanks so much.
