Thread: Two Faced
29th Aug 2019, 07:13 AM #1
I had a thin piece of Oak which sat in the wood store for ages you know the type "I will do something with that one day".
Anyway, I named this two-faced as the disc can be turned around. The centres one green and one red are from a very small burr that I cut into 1/2" thick pieces for use in turned boxes(which I still have not turned), all the texture is done with a Robert Sorby spiralling and texturing tool. Colouring is spirit stain and then either a light sanding to reveal the high spots, a coloured wax that I made myself or dry brushed over the stain. Then finished with an acrylic sander sealer followed by a satin acrylic lacquer
The base is a plum coloured slate again finished with the acrylic as above the two supporting rods are from some metal that I collect which again may come in handy one day, I think this is stainless steel.
Measurements are as follows Total height is 15 1/2" width 13". and depth 4" the decorative disc is 13" diameter
Second picture with the disc reversed
