I love these….ever since seeing the work by Lincoln Seitzman (then seeing an article on him in the AAW Journal)....they are definitely on my list of items to experiment with….You did a great job on this one…very realistic….I was thinking about trying one with a woodburner….instead of ink….but will have to get my burner fixed first….

Well I’m sure it’s me but I don’t get it. Either the illusion is so complete or … oh well.

I don’t get it either. What exactly are we looking at?

Hmmm…great Illusion then!.....This is a lathe turned platter out of cherry wood (Using Tom’s description above). The plate is then marked with ink and paint to make it look like it is a woven basket….It is really all in the markings you make…..if you do them right…the item does not look like it is wood but woven….An Artist named Lincoln Seitzman is more or less the master of these and some of his work is so good you would absolutely swear it is a basket not a woodturning….
Tom…you pulled out a beauty.

Reggiek, thank you, but maybe I didn’t explain it enough. True it is a turned wooden plate then beads are turned in two directions, around and across to give the illusion of a weaving, the paint is only decorative.

Tom, what do you mean by beads? I still don’t understand what you’ve got there. Maybe a picture from a different angle would help?

Jim, I am in the process of making another and I will photograph the process, it will probably be several weeks till it is finished. I will then post it, take a look when I do, I hope to clarify the project. Thanks Tom.

Ok Tom, if you can’t explain it any better for several weeks, I guess I’ll have to wait. Such is the nature of art I suppose. Oh well…

Jim, if you need an immediate answer go to www.davidnittman.com. His web site describes how he does it, my method is only slightly different.
