Made this little bowl that resembles a birds nest from laminating a few ply’s of OSB Board (Oriented Strand Board) also known as Sterling Board, and sometimes Aspenite, simply glue about 3 ply’s together, and turn the usual way, this stuff is very porous, and tears out easily good results can be achieved by using a fast speed, sharp chisels, and a light touch. after turning the bowl to the shape that suits you, sand at least to 220, I highly recommend using some sort of respirator, as this stuff is yucky smelling. Don’t know if it contains formaldehyde or not, might be a good idea to check a MSDS sheet on it. After sanding, I gave it a couple of coats of sanding sealer to help fill some of the larger voids. Then I resanded, and gave it a spray coat of black lacquer , Resanded again to my liking, and finished it with a couple coats of clear lacquer.
