Bear Tooth Woods is bringing you a limited-edition Fall 2021 blank that will only be available September 1st - September 29th, 2021. Any blanks on the shelf after September 29th will still be available for sale, but no additional blanks will be made after that time.
Fall brings cooler temperatures which means you can finally rock all those comfy sweaters you have stashed in your closet. The colors in this blanks brought to mind all those wonderful comfy sweaters we have been missing as the sun has been beating down on us day after day after day. We might be looking forward to summer in March, but by September those of us at Bear Tooth Woods are dreaming of Fall.
This blank combines burgundy red, chocolate brown, antique bronze and saffron orange mica with gold holographic ultra fine glitter to capture that cozy-fall-sweater-weather look for your turning project.
Our Glitter Alumilite blanks have that butter-smooth turn that you've come to expect from Alumilite, however the glitter does tend to make a mess. Expect to find glitter for a while after you turn. When finishing the glitter blank, we've found that using a CA finish has given us the smoothest finish. If you donít use a CA Finish (we use a few coats of Ultra Thin), you might be able to feel the slightest texture of the glitter on the surface of your turned blank.
Small voids in any Glitter blanks are to be expected. We put a lot of glitter in these blanks and some air bubbles and small tear-outs will occur when turning. We recommend using medium viscosity CA glue to fill these voids while the lathe is turned off. Be absolutely sure the CA glue has FULLY cured before you turn the lathe back on.
These Glitter Alumilite blanks are made in-house here at Bear Tooth Woods. We are starting small and would love any comments, compliments, tips, suggestions, complaints, etc.
