This will be my first post in the site, I hope you’ll like it.
This form was turned a couple of days ago from a piece of Olive branch I picked up, it is Olive picking season here, so they also prune the trees while they are at it, so branches, crotch pieces and more are to be found on the sides of the roads everywhere in my area.
It took about 4 hours to complete, and considering I film my work so I’ll be able to post it to Youtube, the actual work took more like 3 hours (where the sanding takes up the balk of that time). The finish is boiled linseed oil, the sizes are 16.5 cm (6.5 inches) tall from floor to top, the base is 13 cm (5 and 1/4 inches) wide, the widest of the hollow form is 6 cm (2 and 3/8th), it is hollowed all the way to the base, with a hair width below 1/4 of an inch wall thickness.
I’m open to all manner of questions and comments.
I’m not sure if this is ok with the site rules, please let me know if not, but here is a link to the video of this specific project:
Thank you all!
