This one worked a bit better for a second attempt.
It is made from the now “Hard to Get” Huon Pine
It’s sanded to 400, a lot by hand, and then sprayed with Acrylic Clear Gloss.

The block is 2 1/2×2 1/2×5 inches and the bowl is a little bigger than 4 3/4inch.
Hope you like it and thanks for looking.

C & C Welcome.

Bob

Nice result I have a stash of Huon Pine but as you say its really difficult to get hold of.
I think the Tassie Gov has suspended all but Derwent recovery of the timber.

Long live our school desks!

Keep aneye on it Bob in case Sashas gnomes want to abscond with it!

I’m not a turner nor do I pretend to be one so this item is an unknown. I do sit and stare in astonishment thinking this was done on a lathe.

Yes Dick, it does defy the understanding of turning on a lathe, but it really is possible. Most turners work a piece then cut it in half to expose the bowl section then turn out the middle. I made this as one piece.

Very nice work on that emerging bowl, Bob. The raised lip is a real nice feature and you did it well. I have that On my list to try.

cheers, Jim

I’m not a turner as you know Bob but looking at your Emerging Bowl and trying to figure out the different mounting positions to make this definitely got me thinking. 3 maybe? I think I understand why you had to hand sand most of it. This has a really cool effect!
I would like two bathroom sink size for our master bath. LOL
Very nice work Bob… Huon pine so nice and great finish…. love the look of this one!

Thanks Jim and Tony.
I like the lip look, just seems to finish it off.

Your correct Tony, 3 different mounts, like I said it’s easier to make when planning to make 2 at once. You turn the round first then cut the block in half.
Only two mountings that way.

Bob,
That is beautiful. A Great effort in Turning. Very neat and very precise.

What a great Finish!!!! Yes the raised lip is a nice feature that really adds to the appeal. What a shame Huon Pine is getting hard to get. Truly one of the most beautiful timbers in the world.

Regards,

Cliff.

Wow Bob, the raised lip is excellent. I have to go for this soon. It does look a lot like a sink like Tony mentioned. Put a french cleat on it and hang them anywhere. Very cool.

Thanks Cliff, yes I love Huon pine, don’t really know why but it has something about it that glows.

Thanks Dave, can’t wait to see your effort. I was going to say “Yours” but thought better of it

Thanks tyvekboy and pottz, You never know what you can do unless you try.
