was off today so went for the first time in shed for a bit of quiet and rest…. ash bowl…but i understood that you loose all sense for turning very quickly when it is over 3 weeks you haven’t been at the lathe ..so there is mistake but i think it is not too bad
Not a fan of Harry Potter so no idea of what a wand should lok like but the grandaughter decided she would like one.. Well , she liked it
Mixed up the monthly challenge, with inspiration from Martins colouring demo too… Resulting in this silver birch bowl atmosphericly coloured with fiery sunset intrinsic collection, topped off with a high gloss wax.
Made from a piece of Meranti finished with YG and HS High Gloss. 6cm by 11cm.
not a lot time in workshop due back to work ..did this at the start of the month for my son birthday present a segmented bowl teak and mapple …

Here’s a bowl i turned this last weekend. Not sure of the wood, but I took a shot at atmospheric coloring, minus the black. I used Ruby, Flame, Burn Orange, and Honey on it. It’s 13.5″ in diameter and about 3.25″ deep.

Square shape, used lime wood. Texture used over the bottom of the platter using texturing tool , coloured and burnt, topside, texturing, ? and infill, several times before finishing using Hampshire sheen and intrinsic colours.
