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.
Tori really loves the rich red color of Poinsettia flower petals. She wanted to create a blank with that same color. She created a custom red mix by combining a couple of red colors to create what you see in this fantastic blank. She also added gold sparkle and gold foil to give your turning project a little extra holiday magic.
When turning, we advise to periodically stop the lathe to check the blank for small pits or pockets created by the foil, so you donít accidentally blow the blank off then lathe if it catches. (See Example Photo)
3/4"+ square by 5"+ long -- 19mm x 130mm
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.
