This was the most complex project we did in the second part of a woodturning course. it is made from slightly spalted oak. far from being perfect but not too bad…
finished with tung oil

very cool, moshe…and a beautiful piece of wood too. I couldn’t tell what was not perfect about it!

Surprisingly, they gave us really nice pieces of wood to turn. I felt a little bad about ruining some of them….
as for the imperfections – hard to see from the photos but i forgot to sand the pieces together, so there is a very small difference in diameter. also, the hollowing did not go as deep as it should have gone, so you can probably store some rings in it :-)

degoose – for some reason this does not make me feel too talented. i just followed instructions…
its weird and i can’t say I fully understand it myself.
anyway – its a fun course and i like the new skill
