  • Hand turned wooded machine parts

    Hey guys I just wanted to share a few photos with you. A friend of mine is a genius with wood and i've seen some people do it before, so i thought why not ask him to make me some coffee machine parts in wood to get rid of the cheap looking plastic stuff and to go along with all the other aesthetic mod's I've done to my La Marzocco GS/3. I think the hardest part was to try give him a clear vision of what each part is for as he isn't a coffee nut, it was a bit of trial and error but each part is amazing! He lives in Tazzie so Tasmanian rose myrtle burl was used. Thanks Jared



    Edit: Sorry about the spelling of "Wooden" in the thread title

    I believe the appropriate word is 'phwoar'. Well done sir! I love that the wooden versions are replicas of the OEM parts. I'm going to have a go at some Huon pine handles for my Conti lever when I get around to that project.

        Very nice, that's some good work.

        And I'm not jealous .
        I just coincidentally want a handle like that for my machine.
        Quite a lot.

            I thought about doing that for myself.
            In the end I couldn't find a decent wood, nor get up the energy.
            Does your friend want some business? Seriously.

                        I dont think i'll be going down that path, I like the frosted glass that adds contrast to the black

                          More of a artist in carving wood usually. He made me a pen previously so i knew he could turn on a lathe
