This piece of Maple gave me a rough time. It started out much larger, the problems were:
• The darn thing cracked, the crack had to be filled with CA
• It flew out of the lathe twice.
• When I was all through with it I didn’t like it and threw it in the burn box.
One day when I was sitting around in the shop looking for (this was of course after I had the shop all cleaned up…..Right.). I saw this piece in the burn box and decided to play with it, like what was the worst that could happen I certainly couldn’t scrap it. Well, anyway, I started carving on it with a rotary file and this was the result. My wife likes it and that is all that matters ;)
This hollow form measures 4” in dia. and 4 ½” tall. The finish is five coats of wipe on poly and buffed on the Beal system.
All comments are welcome and by all means Thanks for Looking!
