3” tall x 2 3/4” diameter. Black Walnut with a 1” dyed agate
Found the wood in a pile of firewood, and decided to have fun.
When I first started turning it, I thought it had a slight bark inclusion that I would turn away, I was wrong. It just gott bigger, so after a little epoxy and a day of waiting, I went back to work.
I’m wondering about dying the epoxy next time. Does anyone have any suggestions on what type/brand of dye works best?
I need to learn to take better pictures because my lack of photo skills do not do justice to the chatoyancy of the wood.
I noticed that the oil didn’t fill all the nooks and crannys, looks like I still have to finish the finish.
-- to turn or not to turn, is that really a question?
