Neat. Could you show us some pictures of the process of you doing the sandblasting?

Wow, that’s beautiful! How fragile is something like this? It looks like it would break if you breath on it!

It’s … sad. Beautiful in a horrific sort of way. You can still see the radial rays but the wood is … dead … without the pulp. There is no grain to catch the light. Like a dead fan coral. beautiful but sad.

Lovely technique and all but not to my taste.

So much of the magic takes part in the sandblasting cabinet. With all the cloud of dust you cannot photo or video. Let me take some still along the way and I will show photos later. More of these to follow so stay tuned.

Thanks
Ron

Very interesting, it looks a little like burlap. I’ve been meaning to try this for a couple of years, but I haven’t turned something in a long time.
