Here's the result of the picture from yesterday. Single cigar tubes made from kits by @bereahardwoods ! This one is purpleheart and shou sugi ban ash. It took a little experimenting to get the shou sugi ban on only the ash, since it is glued directly to the purpleheart. I ended up turning the ash down to the correct dimensions and leaving the purpleheart about 1/16"-1/8" proud, burning the ash, and then turning down the purpleheart to size. It didn't work perfectly, since the purpleheart still burned a bit at the edge, but it did work decently well I think.
In lieu of a yule log video, these 40 seconds of robotic flame treatment should warm you up for the weekend. Before paint or glue will adhere to these plastic automotive parts, they must be heated thoroughly and with careful precision. The perfect job for an @abbnorthamerica robot. Just push the green button to begin. #robotics#flametreated#automation#engineering
🔥Big torches are the only way to go for flame treating wood surfaces to get a nice, even, splotch-free finish. Knocking a customers counter top out tonight with @wrecklesscustoms. #wood#woodworking#flametreated#countertops
Thaaaats better. Redid the flame treating on this Mokuti Dark Matter ring. Colors pop way better. Very tough to control the heat as the ring has very different thicknesses throughout the design. Can't stop looking at it 😁
A proper WTF stunner of a pic from the new home of the Dark Matter: Mokuti edition ring. That's the De Bethune DB28T Piece Unique. First thought when I got this pic was "damn I wish I made better rings!" Spectacular piece and a very cool color combo!! 💙 Am a huuuuuge fan of @de_bethune
