I had a perfect piece of Box Elder for this project and wasted no time getting on the lathe. I used a faceplate to get the bottom turned. I attempted to use the elf decorating tool, but failed. I’m sure it’s my fault and not the tool or wood. Finished with O.B. Shine Juice

Here’s this weeks video: Cigar Ashtray

Nice work. What’s in the bottom?? I have used ceramic tile and some tin in past.

I like it!
I’ve had some issues with a D.I.Y. texturing tool similar to the Elf decorating tool.
On mine I think the rotary tool shaft is too long and flexes more that I would like. I may try to shorten the shaft on one or two of my burrs and try it again.

I’d like to see this piece once its been seasoned a little from the cigars.

Have your say...
