Here is a Purpleheart and Alumilite bowl I cast and then turned. This was some very hard Purpleheart wood, even harder than usual. The turning wasn’t easy because the Alumilite wanted to chip out.

Let me know what you think. I also have videos in my Youtube channel of the casting and of the turning. Please watch if you would like.

All comments welcome.

I really like the effect you have achieved with the combination. Great finish on the purple heart. Will head oiff and have a look at your videos as I have never used alumilite. Well done and thanks for shoowing.

Great looking bowl. I particularly like the shirt you were wearing while casting it…
