ebay AUCTION to support our forum - Birdhouse Ornament!
« on: January 08, 2006, 08:26:11 PM »
HEADSUP EVERYBODY! IT'S AUCTION TIME AGAIN![/b]
We've got another auction goin on ebay! 8)




Here's the link:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=8250160844

This type of Birdhouse Ornament is handturned on a woodlathe by yours truly.  I finish each one with a shellac and then polish it by buffing.  Each one I make is unique because of the character and grain of the wood. This one has a Walnut roof and perch and Cherry house.  The wood came from Olmsted County, Minnesota.   I doubt you will see many turned Birdhouse Ornaments in craftstores or craft sales.  They make nice displays or even tree decorations.

Go for it!  Bid it up! Only the winning bid gets it!8) 8)

Thanks a bunch for the compliments!  I really enjoy making them.  One thing I enjoy about woodturning is being able to take a piece of wood from a firewood pile or the forest floor and show the beauty that is in it.  I've gotten so I just hate to see a chunk of wood go into a fire. ;D

It's exciting to watch people bidding for something I made.  The Cherry and Walnut trees that the wood came from grew in rural Stewartville, Minnesota, which is in the Southeastern portion of the state. 

I'm leaving this evening to go ice fishing way up north Minnesota at Red Lake. I'll be back Friday afternoon. Meanwhile I hope the bidding keeps going, it's for a great purpose! 8)

Looks nice Charley -  I made one this summer, glued up staves of western red cedar, turned it round, made a copper roof,  it's about 14" tall, 6" dia. - I gave it away to our local Historical Society, they auctioned them off as a fund raiser. I never did hear what it brought - First round one I ever did. Fun though.
I was the smartest 16 year old I ever knew.

Mike_Van, nice job. I'm sure some bird will be thrilled to live in that birdhouse!  Copper and cedar should last a long time too.

I'm hoping someone out there will enjoy having the Birdhouse Ornament I turned.  I'm pretty excited about this auction.  I've enjoyed being a member of the Forestry Forum for quite awhile now and have made some good and close friends.........some that I haven't ever seen yet. Plus.. and it's a big plus.....I still get to pick on my big brother. ;D

If the bidding goes well, maybe I'll throw in one of my little turned acorns with it.

Way ta go folks!

I see the top bidder on the splitting wedge bid again to add a cushion. Dont do us any good though unless someone else bids as well.  Looking at bid history is fun and can tell you quite a bit about the auction.  I still have not seen anything from the fellow that emailed me for more information. I checked his ebay auctions and he is also a collector.

$61 will include the two little......well, not really little......turned acorns! 8)   Just to sweeten the pot, for any winning bid over $61, I'll also throw in two of my turned chain pulls (a value of $16). 

Here is an example picture of one of my "Acorn" design chainpulls.  The type of wood will be my choice.

ONLY 5 HOURS LEFT AT 1:15PM!

I just want all you that bid on my Birdhouse Ornament to know how much I appreciate it.  I've had a lot of fun with this auction. :)

Frank has a lot to lose if he bids against me.  His blackberry sales will suffer immensely.   :D

I still have not seen anything from the fellow that emailed me for more information. I checked his ebay auctions and he is also a collector.

Sometimes they wait till the last few seconds with their max bid, I do sometimes. ;D
Move'n on.

Congratulations NW_Hardwoods!  Instant Message me with your mailing address and I'll get the Birdhouse Ornament and two turned acorns in the mail to you.  Because Monday is M.L.K. day, the Post Office is closed, but I'll get it into the mail Tuesday.

Thanks a bunch!  I appreciate your being the high bidder and I hope you enjoy having the ornament.

Charlie

 8) 8) 8) 8)  I won!!!!   8) 8) 8) 8)

I really look forward to getting it Charlie.

Kathy caught me bidding on it and exclaimed, "Is that for my birthday?  What's your max bid?  You'd better bump your max bid up to make sure you get it.  Well, you don't have to, its' your choice."  I bumped my max bid up...

When we got back from dinner she'd checked if I'd won or not before I even got into the house.  She's really excited, I won't let her see it until her birthday though.  ;D
