Not what I set out for, but it is what I ended up with :
Been quite here lately. I guess everyone is doing yard work. With the rain this week, (no golf) I did manage to get a bit of turning in. I’m not too sure about this one, but the wife likes it so it is a keeper. One thing for sure, it was fun turning it, even if I did change my mind a number of times during the process.
Anyway: this is a walnut urn. 6 1/2” tall and about 6” round. Turned from a semi-green log to finish…. end grain turning. Yes I broke the rules and the pith is still in, but not on centre. Allowed to dry a couple of days on the bench, but not too much warping has occured….... thought there might be a lot more. Maybe the wood is dryer than I thought.
Finish is a coat of Circa 1850 tung and teak oils, then two coats of Bullseye Shellac. The rim has been scorched with a tourch…. Lost the bark.
All comments welcome.
