This is a small Blackwood urn with a lid & base, I would have normally made the base as part of the main piece, but I wanted to play about with some ebonising / colouring effects.
The wall thickness is about 4mm + -.
Would welcome comments on the base, The tapered base in picture 5 is the one I designed first, then I played about with the one in pic’ 1 which is flarred out?
If it looks like it is on a bit of a tilt it probably is as I haven’t glued the chosen base yet. It will be glued in the lathe on set centres.
It stands about 10’ x 5’ wide & is finished in several sealer coats with a couple of poly top coats.
Any comments / suggestions will be appreciated.
