Just a quick project to use up the last of the banksia pods, it has a glass vase insert for holding water.
Pic 2,3,4 and 5 are my first attempt at turning Corian,m I used the same method I would if using wood, cutting eight segments per ring using a polyurethene ba sed glue similar to Gorilla glue. The feature rings are laminated perspex (plexiglass). Still have to learn what finish to put on (Pete, Jim do you know).
I realise this is not wood but is a great alternative for wood turners who want to try something new.
