Amazing the amount of work that can go into a club, even one as simple as this. Took me the better part of at least a week. Not 100% sure I'm ready to call it done. It's too heavy to really be useable in a fight so I might cut a bit off the cheeks. I tend to fiddle.
Still I like the look for now, even if it's not what I set out to make at the start.
#tbt to my first ever large piece. Made it just over four years ago and I remember being to happy and excited about it. And I genuinely still feel that way while creating my work. It’s crazy to look back at all my old work and see the different directions I’ve taken since. Super grateful to all of you who have stuck with me along the way and to all the new people following this journey now. I promise I have lots of exciting new ideas up my sleeve... some are coming SOON 🤩. Here’s to the next four years (and hopefully many more) of creating, making, experimenting, and pushing myself. Love you all 💙💙💙

After removing the iron/cap iron and lever cap, I take the plane to the precision lapping plate. It is made of 3/8” thick glass capped with a ¼” aluminum plate. The aluminum has been flattened to within 0.0015. I added the aluminum because I use the Klingspor Aluminum Oxide rolls of sandpaper and the adhesive on their paper is very aggressive. So aggressive it is a mess to try to remove once applied to granite or glass. Even with the aluminum I have to apply paste wax after 2-3 strips or the paper is hard to get off. I use the Klingspor here instead of the 3M Stikit product because it is cheaper. The Stikit product doesn’t have the adhesive problem. If you go down through my earlier posts you will see more detail on the honing setup.
Again, the plane bottoms have already been initially flattened so this is fine tuning. I usually start with 120G or 180G to see any high or low spots. If necessary I will go down to 80 grit. I then lap until flat, moving up in grit until reasonably smooth. I do about 30 full strokes… pressure mainly on the forward stroke and then vacuum off the grit. Then another 30. Once flat, I soften the leading and trailing edges of the throat with a small file and sandpaper and do the same with the outer edges of the plane bottom. You can also soften the outside edges of the bottom by running along the honing plate with sandpaper, as shown in the video. After blowing off any metal dust from all cracks crevises and holes, I add a liberal coat of CRC 3-36 to reduce the risk of rust forming on the newly exposed metal.

Excited for this weekend. Heading down to Stavanger tomorrow to spend the weekend learning more about woodturning from people with waay more experience than me. 🤓 So eager to learn more!! Looking forward to meet @ashleyharwoodturning and @svarvulf who will be there to share their knowledge in the craft. Also looking forward to meet the good folks at @verktoyas who are the hosts for the event. Gonna go all shopaholic in their store 🤪🛠💸
I've been playing with different forms of late, trying to create shapes that are more natural or raw. Also combining patterns and textures in a more earthy way so they are more at one with the piece. The good thing about this is that it opens up a whole new door of possibilities that according to my sketches seems to be endless 😳 This piece stands proudly at 12 inches tall and is carved from Camphor Laurel. It was then coloured with a spirit stain before a light coat of poly. #raw#carvingnature#toomanypossibilities#woodturning#woodworking#fromaseed
