Acacia Dish

I found this triangular piece of acacia and I was going to pitch it in the burn barrel but then took a cut on it parallel to the bark, turned a spigot on it and made this dish instead. This is the last piece of acacia I had.

It is about 6” long and 2” high and finished with clear lacquer. A little of the natural edge survived.

Cheers, Jim

Jim, nice effect with the blue filler. What was the process or will you have to kill me if you tell me. LOL

Turned out nice, Jim. One man’s trash can also be that same man’s next bowl… just depends on if you can see the potential!

Thank you all for the nice comments. I just could not throw away that piece of wood!

Hi Tony. On the filler, it is man made turquoise. I buy it in fine crystal powder form, put it into the voids and over fill them and then drop CA glue onto it… being careful not to let the bottle touch the filler or it might pick some of it out and then it may be too low to clean up in turning.

Cheers, Jim
