Just kind of messing around with whiskey barrel staves and copper. The wood base is mahogany. The triangles are staves stained with poke berries. The finish is brush on clear gloss lacquer. Copper is hand hammered with a blue patina (ammonia and salt).

They are awesome, what a great idea. Thanks for sharing.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Thanks Bob, that Red Mallee Burl Platter you turned is crazy cool. I just picked up a lathe recently, mostly what I’ve been doing is sending chunks of wood hurtling across my shop, but I’m learning….....How to duck!

My daughter was over my house and i got played. Showed her the four triangle design and she went on about that being a lot of work. Half way through explaining how it wouldn’t be, it dawned on me. She has an order in for a 12” diameter copper vessel. Now to find out where to get the copper. What gauge or thickness should I look for?

Beautiful and unique vessels! They are like art works. Like the mix of the old wood and the hammered copper. Great job!
