One project for my dughter’s projects – ash base for epoxy paintings,...she is getting into those days. Diameter 20cm, 2cm hight, 1 cm deep. I cut circle first on bandsaw, from ash plank, than turned midle on lathe….that’s pretty much that, no finish, ofcourse. Second photo is her first practise…

Nice of you to help daughter with her projects also. Epoxy projects are becoming very popular and they are the best protectant for wood. Soon you guys will be posting together.

I think it has a cool “earth from space” look to it. I like it.

You are a great day Ivan! I can see great things coming from this work! I also thought the same as KJ “FrenchGoattoys” with his “earth from space” comment. Nice work! You make a good team!

Wow, Ivan, Well turned!

Helping your daughter, how great….

Encouraging creativity in our kids is always fun. Hope she succeeds in her efforts.

My wife and a couple of friends paint small rocks with all kinds of designs and images. They they put them along walking paths they use for their daily walks. The intent is that people will admire them and them move them to a new spot to be found again. Unfortunately most of them disappear. That does keep they busy painting more. LOL

How wonderful Ivan, to see you doing a project with your daughter.
I think it reminds me of clouds and sea waves, so the ocean in the sky.
