I am undecided on how I want to finish the inside of this hollow egg form.
I have been told the following.
Turn it into a music Box with a figurine in it
Paint the inside with gold leaf and then leave it as a big ring box
Line the inside with satin.
I am working on some segmented wood eggs where I am making them into a faberge style. I scroll sawed designs into the wood and then layers them with veneer to give the appearance of inlay and then add dowels of different woods to give the appearance of it being studded. I did this one as a test to see how the inside turning will be. I will update the project this evening as I get the pictures.
This was made from asingle piece of walnut and a small piece of maple for the inside liner. The maple liner is flippable so it has a larger depressionon the bottom so the bottom can be used as a secret compartment.
The base for the Egg is being finished right now and I will post the completed base and egg this evening.
