I have seen a lot of inside out turnings and they have been either 2 or 4 pieces that were turned and then flipped to turn from the other side. I had not seen 3 pieces so I did this burner as an experiment to see if I could do it.To keep them perfectly aligned, I figured I needed 3 identical hex columns and that I what I started with. I glued them together at the ends for about 1/4” and then split them apart with a chisel to flip them for the second turning. I added some process shots below.

This burner is made from cherry wood with a brass cone holder on top for 2 different diameter cones and the bottom pool is filled with blue epoxy resin. It is finished with danish oil and then buffed and waxed.

I made this video of it working: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YyiZihpjDGE

Cheers, Jim

pretty cool Jim – the burner is ‘set’ in the resin ?

I still have yet to figure out what makes the smoke go Down!

Beautiful work!

Beautiful incense burner Jim. I like how you came up with the hexagon pieces for it. I’m with Lew, I don’t fully understand the down smoke syndrome. Even after watching the video.

I find the inside out turning aspect of this project very interesting Jim. It’s neat to see how the three pieces worked out so well. Another idea for the “to try list”.

Ingenious method for the symmetric turnings, 3-dimensional book matching!

I always learn something new with your work Jim!

Thanks you all for the nice comments. This is a Fathers Day gift to my daughter just for being her! She make me a dad!

Hi Dick. I glued the I/O turning into the base and then poured the blue resin it to within 1/4” of the top. I had to leave room for the smoke to pool.

Hi Dave and Lew. After I made the last one, someone told me that the particulate that makes up the smoke rises on top because of the heat of the burning cone causes that air current. In the hole and below there is no heat rising so the particulate falls just like the stuff in the upper smoke does eventually

Hi John and Bob, I dream about this stuff and how to find solutions to try in the shop. I have always wanted to do a 3 way I/O turning..The trick was to evenly separate them and the hex does that just fine. After doing this, I wonder what a 6way I/O would look like or if it would stay together??? That too would take hex pieces.
I guess I’ll have to sleep on that.

Cheers, Jim
