Our local woodturning club has a President's Challenge every other month. Our challenge for this month is ring holders. Thought I'd try a few. Gonna try a couple of other different styles also.
First is a spalted hackberry bowl with a bloodwood spire. Finished with a couple of coats of BLO then a finish made up of equal parts of DNA, BLO, and clear shellac.
Next is a bowl of tulip popular with a mahogany spire. Finished with a wipe on poly.
Another tulip popular bowl with a holly spire. Bowl is finished with the 3 part finish mentioned above and the spire is finished with a wipe on poly.
Lastly, for the Local #44 Christmas pparty, we are turening tops for the kids. Here is my first and I plan on doing several more. This one is ambrosia maple with BLO finish.
Here it is in action . . .
