Spent a couple days with a guild member showing her the process of turning a two part vessel. This is her piece and we had fun doing it. This is baltic birch plywood. The top was turned on the bias and gives it that off center appearance. The bottom was turned flat, no distortion. The bottom is painted with orange paint with gold flecks, highly reflective. She was a quick study and it was fun. Great job inezz Gessner a fellow club member

That is beautiful. Great job by the both of you.
I love the finish.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Very nice result from the master and student. Hopefully she appreciated the varied results that can be achieved from turning plywood and continues to experiment. Really like the finished paint work.

-- Bob C, Australia. Your best teacher is your last mistake.

Hey guys thanks for the complements. I had fun doing both teaching and turning. This is a person that has had a tough life, husband died 12 years ago and left her hospital bills and leaving her broke. Turning has given her the diversion she needed. She has a bunch of baltic birch plywood that was left in her barn and we tried to do something special and different with it. I too turned a piece and will post it later this week.
