This is a chunk of Padauk I found in a scrap pile. I turned and hollowed. the lid is cut to match the grooving by lathezilla on the inside of the bottom. I put a corian cap on it and turned the finial. I’ve made these finials with a shaft of 1/8”, barbells etc. and as tall as 12”. They are called “trembliers” I learned the technique from Eli Avisera. it requires a special steady rest you hold in your tailstock

Very cool turning, I specially like the finial. Great finish also.

Keep it up.

Beginning to see a trend here…

-- if you can't light a $100 bill on fire and watch it burn, you're in the wrong hobby.

Have your say...
