Curt,

Gives a whole new meaning to the phrase "Dog-Gone it!".
Sounds like "Shop Dog" needs to spend some time in "Detention Hall" and then be sent through Shop Class again - where you teach him what he can and can't do when you are not there.

Subject: Re: RE: FW: Question for all on turning bone?

Hello to everyone.

My wife called me at work, She found this funny.   OUR dog. eat my project.  My bone turning was glued up and drying on my work bench. Our 87 lbs. puppy eat my home work...! ;-p
With all being said and done, I will have to start over again.

One thing I learned on this was, By cutting the bone in disks by the use of a diamond hole saw. made the sanding / keeping a uniformed bone size easier.
 I cut two bones into 14- 1/4" thick x 1" dia. disks.
The glue was a slow set epoxy. (no idea if it would have held together, but I do think it would have.)  

I will not have a lot of Free time coming up over the next few weeks. But I will let you all know, if something works out...

Have a good night/day.

C.A.G.

Yes, over the years I have used epoxies and hid glue but not on bone (much). I also have antique cars and have used all types of glue depending on the need. You already know more about the uses of bone than I do. If I can help, just let me know.

Thanks,

Lonnie

Thank you Lonnie

 

So you use CA glue.That is something that I have lots of.  Have you tried Epoxies, or Hide glue?

 

Bone is not something that lots of people talk about,  I want to find out as much as I can on this topic.

 

Again Thank you.

 

talk to you and all more latter.

Hello Curt,

This is Lonnie (a new member) I am an old wood turner. Over the years I have work a lot with antlers, bone and horns making pen and inlays in bowls. I have had very good success using CA glue. Below, is a site where I am able to get CA glue in large quantizes at a low price just in case you may need one.

Thanks,

Lonnie

Hello Mac

Thank you for your reply.

I have read about the ants... But at this time soap and water will do me fine.  

 

The funny think about turning bone is What I hear is pretty much all the same stuff. Where to get it, cleaning.,, /but what I really want to know is how to make something out of 

bone its self. 

Most stuff that I've seen is very small things, like chess parts and buttons, sowing bobbins... What I've seen i on a few sites, are small boxes and ... larger things that just one bone can never be big enough. Which means to me I have to glue up a number of parts to make something bigger.    

Now the question comes to mind is HOW? Wood glue? Epoxies? CA glue??? (to name just a few bonding methods.)    Is Laminated turning the best way?  How about segmentation turning like how people make bowls. If I can take lots of little pieces and turn it into something much bigger, 

 

Its starting to look like I will be forced to do the old, trial and error method.  Just make something and see how it works out.

 

If you hear any more on this topic Mac. Please let me know.  

 

I have very little free time coming to me over the next few months. so for me its going to be hit or miss. when it comes to  chasing dreams. and new ideas.

 

If anyone can point me in the right direction, Please feel free to do so. ;-)

 

Have a good night.

 

talk to you all more latter.

Curt,

 

I recently talked with a taxidermist about the subject (more focused on skulls - but the info applies to other bones as well).

 

What I can tell you is regarding getting all the meat, marrow etc. off/out of the bones.  Her preferred way is using a particular beetle.  They consume all that "soft" stuff in the bone - leaving you with the "cleaned" bone.  Look that up on the internet.

 

Another method I have heard of is to place the bone(s) next to an ant nest.  They will have a feast - after which you will have a "cleaned" bone.

Word of caution:  You may want to place a "cage" over the bones - since some rodents/critters may gnaw on the bone, or worse yet, run off with it.

 

Have a safe day.

Mac

Subject: Question for all on turning bone?

Hello Everyone.

As you all know, I am always looking at new turning materials,  I made a posting a week ago on turning bone.

 

Dose anyone have any info on this topic?  I have done a pretty large search on this topic as of late. but honestly I have not found much.

 

The outer part of the bone is all that is used. As for a leg bone,( the thickest bone) the edges can get somewhere just over 1/4" for thickness.

 

Knife makers use what is called Scales, they are basically the bone cut in half, and then sanded down to 1/4" to make the handles on knifes. 

Where turners, So what I have found out so far, cut disks out of the bone and then glue these disk together to make turning blanks, for small boxes

and other ornaments/ details.  

Bone can look like ivory. and its a neat materiel to work with.   The Router/ Legacy cuts bone very nicely. and its something that I would like to play

around with more in the future.

 

What I am asking everyone,is INFO. on this topic. what kind of glue works best for glue ups?  stuff like that.

I've also been looking up where to buy bone. and how to process it. Old bones work best. sorta like green vs dried wood. each has its own advantages...

 

So far I've been buying dog chew toys/ bones for dog... the newer the bone the wetter the marrow, (messy!)

and Hydrogen-peroxide will whiten the bone with out weakening the bone. Boiling is not good, and bleach is also not a good practice due these process both

weaken the bone.

 

Any ideas. or thoughts on this topic.

I would be great-full for.

 

Have a great day.

 

C.A.G.

 

 

P.S. I am working a double shift, today and this weekend, so I will not be in contact until late Sunday.

 

More latter.
