Today's the last day for banglebowl 2014; a fun contest dreamed up by Zac Higgins & Kyle Toth. Zac & Kyle are two new friends whom I met through Twitter. They got Marc Spagnuolo to host the contest on the Wood whisperer site. At last count there were nearly 40 entries in both turned and non-turned categories.
I cut & glued up two rings of 8 segments each, which I then glued to a waste block.
I also glued up two others, one in walnut , another in cherry.
I used my face plate to hold the waste block, rounded the outside over & hogged out most of the interior. Following that, I parted it off from the waste block.
I then reversed the ring on the scroll Chuck, and removed more material from the center . I used my bowl gouge, as well as my new scraper. The bangle is about 1/8 inch thick.
I need to sand it down a bit more, then I will put a couple of coats of rattle can lacquer on it, take photos of it and submit it to the contest. Thanks for looking!
