I haven’t posted much in a while.. i’ve been really caught up in school work and cross country…
The first picture includes my first vase (top left), not my first hollow form, just my first vase. The opening at the top is wayy too big.. the wood is camphor, and is finished with tung oil. 10”x5” at it’s widest. the opening is 3.25”.
The second picture is a sapele platter. it is 12.25 and really thin. finished with multiple coats of tung oil and a coat of a beeswax-olive oil mixture.
Picture number three and four is a monkey pod bowl. 6.625”x2”. I LOVE the way monkey pod changes colors when you move it! (chatoyance?) it changes from a black/deep brown to a golden brown color. definitely on my list of favorite woods. when you are turning it, if you don’t wear a mask, you will end up coughing quite badly. finished with spray lacquer.
And last but not least is a cherry bowl. this is the first piece i used tung oil on, and i think it turned out nicely. 8.5”x4.5.
