Everyone loves ice cream and pizza! So I have the perfect gift for you, ice cream scoops and pizza cutters! Each handle is made using maple burl and resin with many different pigment colors.

I hand select each piece of maple burl and cut it to size for the mold so that I can mix and pour the resin. Each mold goes into a pressure pot at 60 PSI for 4 hours. If you would like to see this process, go to my Instagram page, click this link; https://www.instagram.com/p/CVvDI_WrpLA/

Once they have cured, I remove them from the pressure pot and I then cut to size and preapre each blank for turning on my wood lathe. Each handle is unique, the maple burl and the resin color, no two are the same!

After turning the handle, I finished each piece sanding to 10,000 grit and then applying 25 to 30 coats of finish before polishing to a high gloss finish. You can also see the tuning and finishing process on my Instagram, https://www.instagram.com/p/CUxFPJwIeeS/

Both the ice cream scoop and pizza cutter hardware is stainless steel and is very heavy duty. The hardware is removable from the handle for easy cleaning. There are so many different resin colors it is impossible to list them all, so if you have a special color you are looking for or would like to order, please email me at MichaelsWoodcraft@yahoo.com

If you are local in Greenville, SC area, I will be at the Swamp Rabbit Flea Fesrival on Saturday, December 4th from 9:00 am til 4:00 pm.

Below are some of the many different ice cream scoops and pizza cutters I have made recently. Take a look!!

Winter is back!

Snow March 12 2017

Winter returned with an inch of snow for us. Temperatures around 28 degrees with 15 mile an hour winds made it seem a lot colder! I took these pictures from our deck.

The birds are all around the bird feeders. There were a bunch of turkey in the yard but by the time I got the camera they had gone into the woods.

Site Down for Maintenance

I have  been blogging for over a year now and have decided that it is time to change up my blog. After spending a lot of time looking at all my options I have decided to stay with WordPress for now and change themes, which also changes the layout, image sizes and navigation too, etc.

My plan is to take the site down starting sometime Thursday evening and I hope to be back up no later than Tuesday but sooner if I can. I hope I am giving myself enough time to get this done, so be patient. You might start to see some minor changes before I take the site down.

I’ll be back so please check back on Tuesday or sooner for a fresh new look!

I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe Labor Day Weekend!

 

Pileated Woodpeckers Hammer

Home

I have been watching the Pileated Woodpeckers hammer this tree for a few days now. This tree is nearly rotten and appears to be full of beetles. They continue to whittle this tree to eat the beetles.

I have seen two Pileated Woodpeckers on this time at the same time, male and female. Every time I try to sneak up to take pictures of them on this tree they fly away. All of my pictures were blurry so I don’t have a picture to share with you.

You can see a previous post I did on the Pileated Woodpecker last year, click this link Pileated Woodpecker 🙂 Below is a picture that I took last year.

The pileated woodpecker is the largest woodpecker and is very beautiful!

Walnut Slabs

Home

I had time today to check a few boards for nails. After cutting a couple boards to shorter lengths I ran them thru the planner. A couple passes thru the planner on each side was all I needed to do to get the boards planned.

If you missed my previous post about this walnut, check out the before pictures in my previous post from yesterday, Wood Gloat and now the after pictures in this post.

I was very happy to see what I had, great color, light and dark browns, a little black streaking and red streaking with cream color running down the edges. Beautiful colors, grain and character too!

I wiped a little of tung oil on one of the boards to bring out the colors, I can only believe that the remaining boards will be just as good or better. I am very pleased and super happy with what I found, just excellent!! This walnut will be excellent for a nice piece of furniture.

My wife took one look at the walnut and also thought is was very beautiful and then asked me to make her a new stepping stool. I made her a stepping stool many years ago using red oak which she uses in the kitchen all the time. So my first project will be making my wife Debbie a new stool. This afternoon I sketched out three designs for her to look at but she is having a hard time deciding which one she likes the best.

So, I’ve decided that I will post my process of making the stepping stool from start to finish which will be in multiple post. My first post will be coming soon!
