This terms second task, a drinking bowl made in Birch. Dark coloured birch for the bowl main body and a lighter one for the segmented rim.
Outer finish is linseed oil and rubbed beeswax paste. Inner finish is alkyde oil topped with five coats of PU-varnish, matted down and rubbed with beeswax. Gaps in the segmented piece is filled with clear epoxy resin, if I were to do it again and had better time I would’ve used a thinned down acrylic resin since it’s harder and easier to thin so I don’t get so many air bubbles.
Also I threw in three pictures of the test piece which is Pine
