I’d like to introduce “Penelope”! Made primarily of pine from an old bunkbed frame along with a feature ring of Bloodwood and Spalted Maple. I applied two coats of ebony stain and two coats of tung oil to the interior of the vessel.

There are 123 segments in this piece and it’s finished with 8 coats of tung oil and 3 coats of paste wax. The vessel is approx 6”x6”.

Thank you ken90712, lew, matt garcia and napaman!

scottb – oh don’t you worry, I have more designs that use more pieces ;)

moonls – I graciously accept your compliment, though I am not close to being a master yet! :)

loucarb – this is my second piece that was transformed from old furniture, I definately like that aspect of the project!

Have your say...
