4 Piece Hollow Form

I was going through withdrawal from not doing any wood turning for a while so I glued up these 4 pieces of a real open grain wood ( I had spit this log but I don’t know what it is) with walnut strips in between and got some practice in. It was hollowed from the bottom and then turned to shape. The bottom piece blew apart into 4 pieces when I was turning it to fit the bottom but I found all the pieces and glued them back the best I could. I had to use that piece because it had the walnut lines in it and 2 of them are offset a little bit from the repair I did.

it is 11 1/2” high and 4 1/2” at the widest point. I thought it needed to be finished of with a top so I turned the flame shaped stopper out of Jarrah.

The pieces are finished with Danish oil and gloss wipe on Poly.

it appears to be a nice piece despite the blow out but pardon my ignorance, what will it be used for or is it strictly eye candy ?

Practice turning is fun turning and you learn something in the process. Cool.

Thanks Monty John and Tony

Hi Tony. It is a good thing I can still hear because I heard 3 of the pieces that broke out hit my steel rack and I had to fish them out to finish this thing.

Cheers, Jim

Jim,
I can’t tell you how many time I dropped something on the floor or something goes flying and it just disappears into the shop. I can’t get motivated again to finish my project until I find the darn thing.
