Melting pot, melting bowl

These two turnings were made in the same process as my last post. The vase is roughly 9×9 and the bowl is roughly 9×8. I have been having fun turning these… they are a serious break from the norm.

I laid out how I did this in my last post, and used pretty much the same process this time. Woods used are just about every species in my arsenal, and also a couple pieces of plywood for good measure. I will not use plywood again… the glue used in the ply is not strong enough to withstand the abuses of this project.

Finished with wipe on poly, then buffed and waxed.

As a side note, I really want to do one of these in wenge and bloodwood, with a maple veneer separating them. It will take roughly six board feet of each specie, and that is too big a dent on a winter budget for me to pull off. Maybe after the next show.

This is super! Good job. The contrasting wood and the wavy sides go great together. Keep ‘em coming!
