Re: Life changes

Some great looking items there. That vase will be a ripper when it's finished. Ive recently had some changes in direction with my woodworking. So i can appreciate the need to embrace change and never stop learning. When time and finances allow, wood turning is definitely on my to do list.

Re: Life changes

Thanks for the vote of confidence, unfortunately the vase decided to implode plus the lack of skill on my behalf.  

If you take up wood turning go to a group first that run classes it is there where you find out if it for you. Youtube has some great stuff but it never tell you of the pitfalls or the issues of the timbers at the same time. I hope to see some of your work when you start

Regards

Re: Life changes

Hindsight is a wonderful thing, but by that stage I would have looked at doing one of those expoxy resin fills with some blue or green. Then continued turning. It may have shattered, but imagine the end result with the colours in that if it worked? Or better yet, toss in some of the glow in the dark dust :wink:

Re: Life changes

Hindsight is a great thing. My thoughts were to do the epoxy resin and the colours would have been effective, but I did not have the epoxy to and the amount of holes didn't show up until I started turning. The other issue, due the amount of resin need I would have need a pressure pot to prevent hole in the resin. I liked the idea of mixing the dust and will have a go at that. It was a great learning exercise. 

Thanks for your thoughts.
