Ben the Viking, this post is for you and it will hopefully help clear up the technique used to produce the last project “Forest Turning”.
With this new post , I turned a vessel in the middle of the board from only one side so it should be easy to see. I also filled the bolt holes I made to attach the “jig” to the faceplate with contrasting fill to make it clear for the viewer (sort of) as to how it is done. I have re-photographed this piece from all angles to give you a better view of the process that went into it.
Here I also have not identified the wood species leaving it for you to label. I think this one might be easier to identify because it is a LITTLE more common than the still unknown specie used in “Forest Turning” The bark on the sides might help put the finger on it. The reddish color is not from the finish (butcher’s wax)
Best guess so far for the last project (“Forest Turning”) has been by Mike as Goncalo Alves ?? but I don’t know if he is right or not…could well be… The only thing that confuses me is that the black wood is only in the ‘heart wood’ and the sapwood is the dull gold you saw. And of course “Moment hit the nail directly with his guess on the tool used in the technique !
