The first is a Spalted Hornbeam and measures 6” X 2 3/4” . This also gained a 3rd place in a competition.
Turned with a bowl gauge and scraper to finish. Chucking point removed after reversing to leave a slight foot to raise the bowl a little.
Sanded from 240grit down to 600grit then 5 coats of hard wax oil left to dry for 1 week then buffed to a gloss with the chestnut buffing system.
Tried to keep the shape simple to show the grain.
The second a segmented pen for a competition to make a segmented pen, this was my entry that took first place which I did not think was to bad as I had never done segmented work to this scale before or even on a pen. And like on here I left it until the last moment and from selecting the wood and pen kit until posting the pictures took 2 1/2 days including all the cutting of the blank staining the cherry wood, glue drying, turning and finishing.
Anyway here it is the kit is a zeta pen which is slightly smaller than a sierra pen. the woods used are beech and cherry veneer which was stained purple to contrast better with the beech.
And the last is from a blank I had sitting in the wood shed for some time, anyway thought I would have a go at turning it.
This measures 13” across and is 2” deep and as the title is from Oak which was hard many trips to the grinder even after attacking it with a carbide tool.
Sanded to 600grit and finished with Cellulose sander sealer and the on to the wheeled buffing system.
