I created this blog to share my passion for woodturning. It includes photographs of my work, articles I have written, links to YouTube videos of my demonstrations, demonstration handouts and links to other useful woodturning information.
I am so gratified with the views on my woodturning channel. I appreciate the outpouring of well wishers in response to my recent video where I thank my viewers and show pictures of the projects I did videos on this year.
My next personal goal is to achieve 10,000 subscribers. This milestone will qualify me for a few additional perks from YouTube on account management and learning opportunities.
I don't post all of my videos on my blog since I put one up each week but it has been a while since I posted and this was an especially fun project. https://youtu.be/lxDuJZ7kZU8
The project has a two part video. I also made a handout to go along with the video that is available on my Resources page and is called Danish Bird H.O.
If anyone can figure out how to keep the end grain eye white please post in the comments. End grain absorbs finish so the maple end grain eyeball tended to blend into the same color as the oak birds. I tried lacquer sanding sealer and also CA.
