Due to the fact that the American Society for the Prevention of Knuckle Injuries (ASPKI) was on site during the production, no knuckles were harmed when making these items. However, due to the potential for said injuries I think I am going to call them the “knuckle buster series” :-)
Anyway, just a few more things that I am finally getting finished.
The first Saturn bowl is an elm burl, and the second is a maple burl. They started as normal burl caps and edges were left in their natural state. They were undercut and the outside of the bowl was formed, then reversed and the inside was hollowed. They are both finished with poly.
The oriental box is spalted maple and it started as a 3×3x 12 blank. The finished dimensions are 11×2 1/2. The finish is still being determined. Although it was completely done on the lathe, as I look back I can see where some work with the band saw may speed things up a bit.
As always suggestions, thoughts, and comments are much appreciated.
