I had this log sitting in my pile for the better part of two years and I’ve always had a fondness for it.. I have no idea what kind of wood it is—“found on the side of the road wood”. It had a really big split going down one side, as you can clearly see.
I took the crack and filled it with a bunch of metal shavings from the other work that I do, and then filled the rest of it with fibreglass resin. I liked the fibreglass resin for this because it has a very warm tone to it that works really well with the colour of this wood. Rather than being simply clear.
Then turned it round and sliced it in half.. One became a bowl/container and the other a little bud vase. I like that you can clearly see light through the crack in the bowl and the vase is neat with its strange angle and size. I like it with a big, sturdy flower like I have shown in the pictures.
All I did was drill a hole and then epoxy a test tube in the hole. Easy enough.
the metal mixing is a technique I’ll use again for sure.
