Topic tags/keywords: ash pecan sycamore lathe turning traditional arts and crafts

Here are the recent ones both make for friends

The vase is one of my favorite woods Red Ceder. It has a test tube in it and the finish was 4 coats of Amber Shellac and 2 coats of hand wiped Poly. You can also see the powered Metal for the rings. The very top is 3 rings of Aluminum, then 3 of Copper, then 2 of Aluminum again then 1 wide band of Brass.

The next one is a box made from curly maple. The finish was 4 coats of Amber Shellac and 2 coats of hand wiped Poly

As you see I added a surprise on the rim of powered brass.

The next four were made when the turning club had Craig Timmerman from Texas show use how to make them and then we made them.

First up is a winged bowl made from Pecan. The bowl is resting on a pedestal which I turned also and is used to display other turnings.

The next one is a three legged bowl from Pecan also

The next one is a torus form and I made it into a vase with a test tube also

I did not sand or put finish on any of these because I am using them as samples to turn more.

Vary cool turnings with the powdered metals. Just metal powder mixed with epoxy?

Good to see you are keeping these beautiful turnings coming. How’s the teaching going?
Just like gfadvm, I’m also intrigued by the powdered metal process.
Have a great day.
