#144

The wounded oak looks both natural and great.


#145

Made some Scorchers in Jarrah with maple inlay and spotted gum with purpleheart inlay.


(André Boulay) #146

Simply stunning. True art. Nice work!!! :raised_hands:


#147

Made a walnut Harbinger today.


#148

Made an Australian blackwood Harbinger tonight.

The wood is like Australia’s answer to walnut.


(André Boulay) #149

The color on that wood is stunning. I love it.


#150

@Glenacius_K does amazing work. I really enjoy my Harbinger


#151

I posted about my AWESOME wooden unresponsive Glen made me a while back:


#152

Made this yoyo out of some mystery wood today.

I have no idea what it is, but it’s REALLY hard and dense. I have never turned a wood that has blunted my tools so quickly!

It was made from old wood from school benches that my father in law was using for firewood.


#153

That looks SUPER familiar, but I can’t place what it is. That’s going to bug me the rest of the day now.


#154

It looks South-East Asian to me. It has that splintery, brittle, open grain and lots of silicates like other SA timbers. I can’t identify it. Wood is extremely difficult to identify.


#155

It kind of reminds me of lacewood, but don’t think it’s that.


#156

Yeah it’s definitely not lacewood. I’ve done some research and I’ve concluded that it most likely grey ironbark, which is commonly used for hard-wearing outdoor applications like school benches here in Australia.

It has a janka rating of 3664 lbf. To give you a better idea, purpleheart is super hard and has a janka rating of about 2500 lbf.

That is outrageously hard! :exploding_head:


#157

Turned @Myk_Myk a merbau Harbinger yesterday. I gave it a hand-turned spotted gum axle instead of the standard walnut. It’s about 2.5 times harder than walnut and impossible to scorch.

I finally got around to making a few new Curriers

These are going up on YoYo Expert pretty soon!

Purple Heart body and caps:

Maple Body, Purple Heart Caps w/ brass inlay:


#160

The quality of your work is top-notch, Luke. These look excellent!


#161

Love the look of the brass inlay


#162

Started turning a Harbinger out of a piece of Kapur that is one half brown and the other pink. Looks like icecream.


#163

As someone who loves harbingers AND ice cream, I am on board
