    Default Sarsaparilla practice piece No. 2

    89mm x 34mm x 3mm

    Sanded to 400 & finished in Ubeaut Trad Wax.

    The timber came from the same branch as the last piece.

    I finished this one by continually sealing the crook grain with a lacquer sanding sealer that set very quickly & then carefully shear scraping it.
    As soon as I had cut through the sealer, I put more on it.
    Eventually it could be sanded without the torn grain showing up.

    Same comments about the quality of the timber, the DO & the focus.

    Default Burdekin Plum practice piece

    112mm x 45mm x 4mm

    Sanded to 400 & finished in Ubeaut Trad Wax.

    The timber came from Charters Towers & was given to me by one of the blokes at the Prossy Turnout.

    This stuff is brilliant to turn, it makes you look like a pro.

    This piece has a couple of small cracks in it that I didn't bother trying to hide of fill & even though it is just waxed & not oiled, it will go into use at our place as a nut bowl.

    I have 2 more blanks just a bit bigger that I have rough turned & sealed with wax.

    When I do them, I will finish them in DO.

    Sorry about the focus in the side shots.
    Cliff.

    Default Camphor Laurel Concept Pot

    100mm x 84mm Hollowed with a Vermec hollowing tool.

    Sanded to 150 & not finished 'cos I went too deep & the bottom is too thin. (Not broken but you can see a glow through it when held up to the light)

    The timber came from an old bloke in Townsville more than 10 years ago.
    It has some nice colours, pity I buggered it up.

    I posted it as a concept pot for comments on the shape.

    I like the shape & I'll definitely have another go at a piece like it.

    Focus isn't getting any better.

    This look is really excellent especially with that grain Cliff suits the shape

    That has been suggested already & I have seen it done before BUT...
    it is dead obvious & there is always somebody who states the dead obvious, at the top of their voice.....

    G'Day Cliff

    What a magic shape for the grain orientation, consider idea stolen!

    Yes but you didn't go through it you saved it

    but its your work and your trying to rescue it after all it is a spectacular piece Cliff.

    Isn't using scrap pieces to make a segmented piece obvious and look how well many turn out.

    Default Another piece of London Plane

    Sitting here in bloody cold Canada, crocked up after putting hand in bandsaw so I thought I need to visit for some warmth and good cheer.
    Well here's a hat. I buggered up the brim when a rubber band cut through it so I ended up giving it a coat of paint except for the band and the inside. It was a pretty plain (pun) piece of wood so what the hell. It does fit me so I will wear it the next time I'm at the opera

    Pity, still, it does look good in black.
    You'll have to try making a former to shape the brim.
    How do you shape the crown, is that done on a former?
    Maybe you can incorporate the two.

    Cliff, I use a former and stretch rubber bands over it to pull the brim up at the sides. The brim is turned with a downward slope on it. The crown is just turned to that shape as I part it off from the chuck tenon. I turned it outboard as my old Delta iron is only a 12" swing.

    after a long time off the lathe i had another crack at it. and came up with this. turned and finished green it's some sort of white ceder. and it's now far from round the top and base are turned from the same bit of wood. it was finished with blue food dye 85c a bottle! a permanent marker! and shellawax cream over eee and sanded to 1200 (top) and 40 (bottom). i had to be very quick with the base because the top was rapidly going out of round. but i think i pulled it off. tear me down lads!
