Work slow so I didnt work again today........so off to the garage to turn another vessel and with better luck then the other day.
Picture 1- Roughing out the shape for a rounded vessel
Picture 2 - Initial hollowing out with my indexing tool
Picture 3 -Finish hollowing out with the Monster rig..... Dried Mesquite gets very jumpy when hollowing especially the middle inside with the cutter.
Picture 4 - One coat of 50/50 Laquer and Laquer thinner (using Behlans Laquer cut with Laquer thinner) applied by hand. Behlan's Laquer is a very good laquer and is crystal clear when you open the can. It is the second time ive used it and I really like how it looks.
Picture 5 - Second coat of the above, sprayed the inside with orange oil and letting it sit ("INSIDE"....) until I have more time to add more and part it off
