This is my 41st bowl and I don’t know what kind of wood it is. It is 6” x 2 1/2” with a 1/8” wall and finished with clear matte spray.
It had cracked when I started on the inside so I had to take it off and epoxy it and re-turn the outside and the inside.
This is one of the 4 pieces I soaked in the Minwax pre-stain conditioner to make it turn cleaner. It did help clean up the end grain but when I went to sand it, the conditioner must still be in it because it gummed up the sand paper all the while.
The two business card holders are made from Corian. I used posts to make them full view card holders. I glued the 1/2” Corian together to make the posts which are sitting back at a 15 degree angle. The larger 1 1/8”post required a little more material so I used a contrasting color. The posts were turned to size on the metal lathe and the slots were cut in the mill.
They are finished with clear matte spray…....................Jim
