This is Red African Padauk, and boy is it red! It’s name also means “winged fruit”. Over time and exposure to light, this super red will often get darker to a deep dark maroon. Although gorgeous to see, it is a mess to work with! Red. Dust. Everywhere!! This particular bowl is a special order from a distant relative on the Cuban side of our family. He asked for a red bowl, and my only response was “si”!

If you haven’t tried Cubitron sandpaper by 3M you are missing something great. I had no idea it was this good. It’s seriously a game-changer it’s so good.

Bowls for days! It’s a bit addictive honestly. Lots of fun turning (literally) a block of wood into a beautiful vessel.

So nice to have a guest in the shop today! My buddy Scott, who is quite a wood artist himself, shared the day with me. This was his very first time with the lathe! I got him started, showed him the ins and outs, he killed it! Look at this beautiful bowl he made. Now he’s hooked and in the market for a lathe for himself. #lathe #woodturning #firsttime @lagunatools

I love being with our grandkids. We can almost always think of something to build together. This is his first time using stain. It’s a piece of teak, he choose “Fireside Cherry”! 🤷🏽‍♂️ (He loves red). Later we’re going to laser engrave something we designed earlier on the laptop.

Custom order. This will be mounted to the wall out back on his pool deck. The customer is going to install hooks on this board for wet towels and clothes. Maple, cedar, and Ipe.

Customer wanted to “wow” his guests with a special charcuterie board, cutting board, plus 6 bowls and 6 plates. So I sourced some Zebrawood and spent some time at the lathe. End product is beautiful, and yes, it got a “wow”!!!
