I was all set to do a variant on my last arched piece, but got side tracked with this reversed wing thingy,
It is made from some of the building site reject Beech I acquired which is a lovely timber to work with, I am always tempted to stain this stuff as it is light in colour however in the finish left it as is.
It has been finished with about 6 or 7 coats of home brew sealer & a top coat spray.
It is about 160mm sq (220mm across the opposite tips) stands about 120mm high, it is around 3.5mm thick.
Thought I would throw in a photo of the “mark 1” which had other ideas about staying in the lathe, (basically wrong choice of timber for this type of turning, which needs to be very hard to stay in one piece)
Appreciate any comments good or bad, thanks for looking
