I was waiting for glue to dry yesterday so I jumped on the lathe and turned a couple pieces I had laid up a while back.
The first one is a Barrel bottle stopper made from plywood. I have been making all kinds of thngis out of plywood, why not wine bottle stoppers. The rings are painted black before the final cut and it is finished with clear matte spray
The other piece is a black corian egg cup made from six pieces of corian glued with 3 minute Epoxy from Harbor Freight. This one was some tough cutting even with freshly sharpened tools. I don’t know if black is harder than the lighter colors of corian. I think this is my best egg cup yet. There are no seams to be found. It is finished with EEE and Shellawax.
The stopper is SOLD
