  • A last minute Gift (Turning)

    I needed something quick so I made my first hollow ornament with a finial.
    Maple and not sure. It is about 6" tall.
    Turning is fun!.

            Hey Rolf - I can make something like that in clay and in plaster. I guess one day I should try using wood - LOL!

            A very nice piece indeed. I also like the curved wood support in the second photo. Did you steam the wood or cut it to give it the curve?

            Thinking out loud a piece like this could make a really attractive clock pendulum, maybe hiding a brass core in it to give it some additional weight.

            Ok, I know. I should stop thinking so much ....

              The hollowing is done with an initial hole drilled in the center with contempt a hollowing tool. For this it was small scraper.
              Jim the stand is steam bent oak. I did it a few years ago.
