Bear Tooth Woods is bringing you a group of limited-edition Christmas 2021 inspired blanks that will only be available from now through December 8th, 2021. Any blanks on the shelf after that date will still be available for sale, but no additional blanks will be made after that time.
We get a lot of fantastic flurries here in Colorado that are so much fun to watch from inside the house. Tori decided to recreate one of those beautiful snow showers inside of a blank. She combined Chunky Mother of Pearl Glitter mix with glitz diamond glitter and opal blue shimmer ultra fine glitters to create a perfect snow flurry storm inside this blank.
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. Please feel free to email us with any comments, concerns, suggestions, etc about the glitter blanks.
