Once again an idea to sell specialty items for Bonsai people. A turn table variation with a carving of the persons favorite Bonsai plant. At least that’s the way the idea started out. The ones that I made ended up as a lazy susan turntable. I think they call this relief carving. I never done it before, it took quite a bit of time but it was a lot of fun. Also painting the project and applying the finish was another learning experience.
The first picture is the table I made of the logo belonging to the Mid Atlantic Bonsai Society. It was auctioned off at one of their meetings.
The second table is a carving of the tree that belongs to Frank Mihalic the bonsai master at Wildwood Gardens Nursery where I took my lessons.
The third table is a carving of my favorite tree from my collection. I also included a picture of the tree in the carving. The tree grew within the rock. At the time of the picture the tree was approximately 45 yrs old.
2in. x 13in. dia. round oak cutting board blanks from Word Market were used for the top. A wooden craft plate is used for the base.
These were fun to make.
