box elder box/bowl/flower holder
kind of like the idea of creating vessels with multiple purposes thought about doing a double or even a triple box but decided on something that could hold flowers and be a box. Started using sanding paper up to 2000 grit LOVE that smooth feeling but it sure does take longer to get everything just right! A few questions about finishing- the wet sand stuff 600+ Ive been dipping it in wax and applying. In terms of finish I'm totally clueless when it comes to this stuff. Don't know if that actually helps create a smoother finish or if Im just kind of smearing stuff around. What would be a good method for some kind of finish using wax or danish oil that can give a finish of the oil but have the smoothness of 2000 grit sand paper... know this sounds rather daft but Ive just been farting around thusfar and would love to know how the pros do it! Anyway with no further blather heres some yummy yummy box elder. By the by I have truck loads of this stuff all spalted and curly and flamed and have noticed there is some interest from people in getting some. If youd like any just pm me, would love to trade for something I havent turned before or would happily send some small stuff if tradings not in the cards! happy turning all,
