About 15 – 18 years ago ( berofe I started turning) I worried this piece of Kauri to death for about 12 months, one of thoes bit thats you cut a bit of here and leave it for maybe a month and then have another go. It was based on a picture I had seem somewhere at that time
Well about that time we started some major renovations and the shed had to be cleared out, so this was thrown in my wood store back of the shed. over the years it hade been totally burried untill recently I was look for a particular piece of wood an this thing “reappeared”
It was a bit messy and water stained, anyway after a lot os resanding, sealing and a couple of coats of shellac here it is. It has some cracking you can pick up in pic 4.
Advise/ ideas please on a base of some sort, I currently have it screwed to a board to work on & stop it falling over all the time
It stands about 13” high x 7” wide & 5” thick
