    Default Two Faced

    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

    Thank you all. This is something that I have wanted to do but had not tried until now after finding the thin piece as I said. like many you find wood and think that it will be useful someday when I can think of what to make with it, and stick it in the stock pile of wood(well if like me that is)

    Thank you, Keith. Not sure sometimes and sometimes just a theme on something I have seen.
