Project Information

Here's the victim, getting a little branch bump sliced off, for between-centers balancing purposes.





Cape Chestnut, it is.



Photo lifted from Web.

This, I know now, is a stunning bit of wood.





Rounding.



Defining.



Finding that this tree, evidently , grows in layers. Layers that will sometimes flake off.





Not to worry. I've dealt with worse things.

Oh, the movement in there.



Hogging out wasn't easy. Nothing's easy for me.



I had someone else's goblet in my head, I guess, when I settled on this shape.

These cracks, if you'll go back a coupple shots, were internal. Not to worry. I've dealt with worse things. Super Glue, which later popped out and had to be re-done.



After the thinning was dome, of course.



I wonder, now, if I should just go with a Palm Tree-Shaped stem.



Nah. That's not what I set out to do. This is what I set out to do.



This is how I make something wobble on the chuck.



So many ways to go.



A little Rattle-Can Shellac.





A little WOP, brushed on.



And we're back where we started.

I like this contrast between natural edge and turned part of the project.Remind me on kind of tulip flower.

Nice. Now you are making it look easy. A face shield may be needed on the next adventure. Keep them coming.

Pretty cool, Mark. But where'd you buy that wood magnet? I've searched and searched, cant find one anywhere!
