I made this for the Frank Lloyd Wright design fun going on in the blogs. It’s also an exercise in playing around with my new bandsaw. The two kind of went hand in hand.
There’s a lot of rock maple in here, along with walnut, mahogany, cherry, osage orange, olivewood, redwood, bloodwood, zebrawood, paduak.. I think that’s it.. :)
It’s my first attempt at complicated segmenting so obviously I still have a lot to learn. It also was a little tricky to turn because I have to turn it without removing it from the chuck so the front and back are cut in the same go.
It’s about 6.5 inches in diameter and 2 inches tall. Built up a polish till it felt like glass.
For fun, I put it up for sale in my etsy shop. We’ll see if anybody wants it!
