Default It was a Hoot!

Mike here are the close up pictures of the owls you requested in this thread http://www.routerforums.com/tools-wo...-band-saw.html.
The reason the shop was closed last weekend, my friend had cataract removal surgery on his right eye. We talked about the router forum and that many people around the world enjoyed his work.

The shop is like one of the old mom-and-pop stores from you home town. You can not just stop by for a minute; the minute will turn into an hour or so . . . and it’s always an interesting conversation. The owl on the clock moves like a pendulum. Now that his eye is healed and he can see better he made quite a few owls this week.

The round vases were hand made not turned. When I first picked one up I asked if he had turned it. When he said, “No,” I noticed the imperfections, the slight out-of-round; still quite a feat for hand work with a wood rasp. There are plenty of future table tops here too.

Wow--that is awesome. The owls are coo, but I'm more amazed at how some people can turn gnarly wood into art and just let it speak for itself. I wish I had that vision.

I agree, some have it some don’t. I for one am in the latter category.

Steve,

Thanks for sharing. Such imagination! I'm glad there are people around the world who are a lot less linear-thinking than I!

He has a very artistic eye. Looking at those flitches, I am guessing he must turn out some larger work at times. You mentioned table tops Steve. Any pictures of those?

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

I don’t remember a table; there might have been a small one I will look when I stop by Saturday. The lumber standing along the wall is generally turned into table tops. Having 4” or thicker table made of natural wood shape with and without the bark are fairly popular here in Japan (They are very pricy, you could buy several routers for the price of one. If it was really a nice one you could almost buy a whole wood working shop!).

Hmm, thanks for the thought. If I make one and sell it maybe I could buy the routers…..
