Woodturning Tip of the Day

Too much sanding?

If you plan to stain your work, remember that over polishing the wood with tools or extra-fine sandpaper will close the wood's pores. Pine is most susceptible to over polishing, to the point that resin is drawn out and prevents stain from soaking into pores.

Segmented Bolo Tie With Wood Tips
by As Wood Turns

Last month, we recommended some nice wood stem glasses for Mother's Day gifts. This month, we'd like to make a suggestion for Father's Day. In this video, Alan Stratton shows us how to make a Segmented Bolo Tie with wood tips. This is a fun project made from 24 segments of walnut and maple and featuring a walnut center. The bolo also features turned finial tips. This tie is a great way to dress up with a western feel.
