HF turned Vase
Well I went to run a errand a few days ago and came home to a box on the steps. It was from a friend of mine that I had met up in New York. She had sent me a oak burl. So a couple of days ago I put it on the lathe and starting slowing turning a HF. It was making a lot of creaking and cracking sounds so decided to go the saran wrap route. Worked pretty well but the top just imploded and the saran wrap did keep things from flying in all directions. So studied it for a bit and decided it was just to pretty so went the bowl route. My wife thinks it is just beautiful and so do I. It will go up on my mantle to be proudly displayed. It is 7 1/2" across and 4" high. Finished with one coat of AO to pop it and several light coats of lacquer.
