Bear Tooth Woods is bringing you a limited-edition Dog Days of Summer 2021 blank that will only be available August 4th - September 4th, 2021. Any blanks on the shelf after September 4th will still be available for sale, but no additional blanks will be made after that time. Some of the glitter used in the blanks are extremely limited, but we believe we have procured enough for the entire run (fingers crossed).
Bear is the outgoing, loves everyone, representative of Bear Tooth Woods. He likes to bark, but he really does love everyone. Although not so much one particular FedEx driver. :( He is a crazy dog and so Tori combined Orange, Green, Blue, and Black mica with a chunky dot rainbow explosion glitter mix to create a chaotic whirlwind blank befitting Bear. These are his favorite harness colors when he goes around and visits all his friends in the neighborhood.
The glitter has been cast in a clear alumilite base. The blanks may look solid in the photos; but they are very clear and when turned to the thinner dimensions of a finished pen, you will definitely notice. Because of this, we highly recommend painting the interior of the blank after drilling. You can paint the inside of the blank any color you want, but the color you choose will really impact the final appearance.
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.
