A piece of old reclaimed Rium which started out as a slightly longer HF but due to our arguement I had to :”readjust” somewhat. It is turned to about 3mm thick which meant the pyro burns are pretty close to the inside.
Sealed with a satin acrylic poly, cut back with EEE & buffed, Stands about 5” high & 6” wide.
Any & all comment welcomed

Thanks Erwin, Bob & Sam,
hey Bob ( good to see you again) after burning the hell out of it I didn’t think there was much more I could do with it.
Sam, you’re too kind, I will pass on this one

Nice turning Pete. I like the division’s with the pyro work, and the contrast to the natural wood.

A very pretty piece Pete but you’ve lost me on the lingo. HF? EEE? Is this a turners secret society language? And are those individual burn marks put in by hand? You have the patience of a saint if so and are really challenging me in the repetition sweepstakes. It looks like cuneiform from ancient times.

What a class act ! Very nicely done ! I also wish I knew what HF and EEE represented, but I probably shouldn’t know everything (:-])
