Samples make cool stuff. I get the old samples from the company I work for when the new stuff comes in. I am a project engineer for a custom cabinet shop that also produces counter tops. Hope you guys don’t mind my sharing these.
I don’t have any micro turning tools yet. I need to get some cement nails to grind my own. I could go and buy some but I don’t want to buy 500 lbs form one of the big box stores. I miss the old days where you could just buy 1 nail or screw if you wanted to. So even with the tools I have I was able to make this.
The Avonite that I used to turn this has small clear chunks in it so some places you can see thru the goblet. I had to glue two pieces together to make this goblet. There is a seam that you can see when the material is transparent like this one is. If you use solid color solid surface you don’t see the seam.
This stuff also makes some real cool jewelry items…
Thank for looking.
