Our golf club is holding their annual Rally for a Cure this upcoming weekend and this year I wanted to donate some pieces to auction off. Where possible, I tried to use wood felled on the golf course over the last year.
The first piece is a sycamore and walnut celtic ring design and also has golf ball marker on top. The second is a pear made from Bradford pear with a turned and carved stem. The third is meant to look like the knob of a baseball bat with the local MLB team logo on a golf ball marker. The fourth is a banksia pod inlaid with crushed turquoise. The fifth is a segmented piece of white oak and black walnut to look like a wine barrel and also has golf ball marker on top. The last is a simple round design of black walnut with the golf ball marker on top.
I tried 3 different finishes on these as I’m learning from scratch on the lathe. I use the Beall buffing system, CA glue and OB Shine Juice courtesy of Cap’n Eddie.
Hope they raise some nice bids for a good cause.
Thanks for looking!
