Some experiments and preparations for next year Easter. I glued all usable various woods and plywood scraps, cut them to some 9-10cm lenght 6×6cn and cut angles on tablesaw (several dozens of them). Now I have plenty of time to turn them – day by day, week by week, whenever catch soem time…just in time to finsih them until next Easter.
Of course, they are different final size, depending on block available. Finish wood oil. I’m using version to make them without chuck. Dimensions are 6-7cm x 4.5-5cm.
I learned that turning plywood paralel to grain (5th photo) is not so reliable because it breaks easily, so I will just turn versions on 3rd and 4th photo.
Finaly, I tried to make egg of piece of epoxy, my friend gave me. It is pretty hard material, require good quality and sharp tool. I think I will skipp that material. Only fun here are flying epoxy stripes!

Nice eggs and a good way to use up scraps. You are giving yourself a lot of lead time for next Easter!!!!!!

I know what you mean about turning epoxy..Corian is like that too. The thin shavings stick to you all over. I have to vacuum my self to get it all off.

Cheers, my friend….............Jim

Nice job Ivan that is a great idea for Easter. I’m sure you know this, but if you are looking for color, the water soluble dyes are a great way to go. You can mix the dye strong for deep color or weak for a pale pastel color.

Very cool. Nice way to use up some scraps. Now you’ve got me thinking about how to part it in half, hollow it and mate them back together like the cheap plastic eggs, basically make a small egg shaped turned box.
