Just had to give this one a name. haha
It is Claro Walnut and Ebony, on a Wrought Iron Stand. Finished with wipe on poly.
Started out as a footed cup/chalice type turning. Turned it to 1/2 inch wall and let dry for about a month and a half. Once I went back to turn it round again, It was soooo far out of round, I ended up with a wall thickness of only 1/8 inch!
Decided to try a design change, and this was the result.
Main body is 3 1/4 inch diameter X 6 1/2 inch tall, 1/8 inch wall at top and a little thicker towards the bottom.
Used the indexing head and a jig on my lathe to make sure the “pegs” were evenly spaced around, and same distance from the top.
With lid, in it’s stand it is 10 1/4 inch tall.
This could be an urn for a pet (small pet, maybe a guinea pig haha) or candy dish or just as a conversation piece. Not sure who is going to end up with this one yet.
Please leave all comments/questions and critiques. I am always looking to improve and your comments help.
Thanks for looking.
