This is a couple of simple little dishes with lids.
They are turned from a piece of real gummy Ancient Kauri, it’s a bit like turning resin, when it comes to sanding you get about one pass then your paper is clogged with gum.
You can friction polish the finished piece with just a bit of old towelling which heats the gum just great & produces a real nice smooth finish.
These little guys are only about 3” in dia’
This stuff is very hard to find.
Any comments welcome
