This is a small hollow form approx 4 inches tall without the finial. Beech wood that has copper and patina on it. The finial is a resin that I cast to get a color that would go with the piece. I have started to do some casting with Alumilite.

Let me know what you all think

All of your turning are well done.

I have not done any casting yet so I have a lot to learn but your finial is fantastic.

Wow, that is a piece I would love to have in my home.

wow that is very cool. I especially like the finial. Is the resin cast to its final shape or cast into a blank then turned?

Another great piece Ron.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.
