This is a design I found on IAP. A gentleman with the handle of “FireWhatFire” was kind enough to provide a blog for those that wished to try it out.
My rendition is made from segments of Paduk, Rose wood and Aluminium mounted on a Craft USA Artisan Aero 10K gold & chrome kit. The finish is 10 coats of CA. Building the blank didn’t take very long but the turning was very time consuming. I had 2 blowouts during turning and repaired them. Next time I will use wood that has greater contrast with each other and I’ll use a less porous wood than paduk.
Thanks for viewing and comments and critiques welcome!
