This started as just an inside out turning without a final plan in mind. It was cut from a 3×3 piece of mahogany that LJ Doug Scott dropped off and I just wanted to see how this would work if I screwed the pieces together instead of gluing with paper in between and tape around the outside. I think it is a slick way to make these inside out turning just by leaving the blank a little longer. I used 8 screws to hold it together.
This was another experiment using the brass powder that LJ Arlin Eastman steered me to. I tried it once with epoxy and it did not work so good. This time I used CA glue and it polished up like a piece of solid brass in the groove. The place to buy that powder is in the 6th photo.
It is about 3” square x 7” high
I finished it with Danish oil and will buff it after it dries overnight.
