These are a couple of projects I finished this week. I am making a red cross for a customer out of box elder and I had this piece left that would make a very nice obelisk but I did not want to make just a straight sided one. With the red in it, I thought it needed to be a flame shaped, so this is what I came up with. It is cut just like the one in my blog, but instead of straight lines from the bottom corners to center of the top, I drew in a flame shape and cut it both ways. It is finished with clear matte spray
The egg cup was made from 5 pieces of white Corian and one black one- I ran out of the white. I stacked them up and glued them together with 5 minute epoxy from HF. This time I sanded each piece top and bottom on a piece of sand paper on a flat plate- sanding in a figure 8 pattern to get them really flat. This piece has no visible seams. It is finished with EEE and Shellawax.
