Claro Wlalnut Burl Vase.

4 1/4 Tall X 4 1/2 Diam. Turned to about 1/8 wall thickness.

Picked up this piece of Claro Walnut Burl from WoodWorkers Source a couple of weeks ago. For my birthday last month, my daughters gave me gift cards to buy wood with. This is one of those pieces of wood.

Sanded to 400 grit then used all 4 colors of scotch pads. Sealed with Tung Oil/Varnish and buffed it with the Beall Buffing system,(Tripoli, White Diamond, and Carnuba Wax)

Please leave all comments and suggestions. Always room for improvement. Thank You for looking.

Scrappy that is gorgeous. Is that a chuck I see? Don’t you love daughters? Almost half my tools were bought with birthday & fathers day gifts. Well done.

Scrappy, very nice turning…..took alot of guts to make a thin lip like that at the top of a burl piece….I can’t count all the times I’ve had a piece crack out of that kind of top and ruin the whole shape….sometimes I can reshape…but there are many others where the piece becomes another scrap for the stove.

I love claro burls for its stability though….chocolate colors and the beautiful figuring. Which hollower are you using? I am playing with shapes for a shop made hollower.

What a great piece of wood! Nice birthday present; your family knows how to please. You are obviously skilled to do such a deep-sided hollowing. Very nice.
