A walnut slab with some yellow heart wedges then turned. The biggest issue was the not knowing the outside shape till I got the inside set. I don’t have the ability to turn it a second time once it is on the chuck so I had to finish the outside carefully without running into the chuck.

Uploaded some more photos of the early stages. I had run into a problem trying to get a wedge of less of 90 deg because the kerf of the ts blade wouldn’t allow a sharp point to the cut out. I had lots of great suggestions that I may try but in this case just tilted the blade all the way over to 45 deg and cut away.

It’s very creative. I love the way this turned out.

Thanks for the all the comments. It was kind of cool to see an idea actually turn out as I envisioned it.

The finish is just Danish Oil (Natural). Wondering if I should put something else over top?

Nice piece.
Simple yet elegant.
Do you have any picks of blank pre-turning ?

I have made many bowls with danish oil as only finish..it has resin in it. buff it when dry.

I added some images of the blank. If I did it again I would make the cuts deeper and user larger YH slabs to provide more possibilities. I also left the blank in rectangular form to start as I was toying with the idea of wings but that turned out to be a bridge to far.

Have your say...
