I am trying to wrap this concept around my little head. Assuming I have a lathe that turns that 18” beast around; what would I get out of it; a 12” bowl with some beautiful figures on it? So, will there be someone out there to pay me $100 for it? Please don’t think I am being sarcastic; just trying to figured out how I could make some profit from this purchase. If it is something profitable, I might invest in it.

I would probably resaw it into 5/4 or 6/4 pieces to use as saw handles, plane totes, boxes, or wood body planes.

A friend and I thought of 8/4 slices but although you never know whats on the inside, I chose to keep it whole.

As far as profits….
I believe the art comes first. The passion for the piece of art needs to be the first and only thought. If the artist sees promise and a masterpiece and is confident in his skill completing the process, then the money will pour in!

Lathe will need a 14” capacity.

Sorry 007, this piece has sold (to LJ member ). It will be milled.

Have your say...
