Here is another Mesquite turning. Tried to make a vase with a flared rim. Found out after I roughed this out that there was a crack in the one side. Glued the crack shut as best I could, and when shaping the top flare, it split a piece off ruining the flare opening.
“Mid Proccess RE-Design” and came up with a “Hollow Form Egg” haha
The opening was not supposed to be as large. Found out that when your tool grabs, when you are inside of something, it is going to snack the sides of your opening. Had to do a little trimming to get rid of the cracks, and this is the finnal outcome.
This stands 3 1/4 inch tall X 2 1/2 inch diam. Wall thickness is about 1/8 inch. Sanded to 400 grit then buffed. Sealed with 2 coats of wax so far and buffed. Will probably put more wax on and buff later.
Did not get the inside as smooth as I wanted, but with redoing the opening twice, I figured if I kept going, I would end up with a shallow bowl. hahaha
Please leave all comments and suggestions. I am allways trying to improve so you critiques help.
Thank You all for looking.
