Bear Tooth Woods is bringing you a set of limited-edition Christmas 2022 blanks that will only be made until December 16th, 2022. Any blanks on the shelf after that date will still be available for sale, but no additional blanks will be made after that time. Some of the glitter used in the blanks is extremely limited, but we believe we have procured enough for the entire run.
You would think it would get harder every year for Tori to come up with new ways to combine traditional Christmas colors, but all of us are lucky she hasnít run out of ideas yet. Christmas Classic is a combination of red, spring green, gold and white with a little sparkle magic thrown in.
3/4"+ square by 5"+ long -- 19mm x 130mm
Gold, White, Red, Spring Green
Gold Sparkle, Silver Macro Sparkle
Each barrel was finished with a few coats of UltraThin CA Glue and sanded through 12000 grit.
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 Super Thin), you can 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 Swirl Alumilite blanks are made in-house here at Bear Tooth Woods. Comments, compliments for Tori, tips, suggestions, complaints, etc. are all appreciated and help us do our job better.
