New bowls and a goblet

Hey folks. Just thought i'd throw up a few pics. the first picture is a laminated exotic hardwood platter. I'd like to thank Paul (Phinds) for these awesome blanks, they are a pleasure to turn and look beautiful when finished. this blank is the first of 3. the second picture I decided to experiment a bit and step out of my shell. this is an ash platter. I painted the grooves in the rim black. i also had a happy accident, in my opinion. if you'll look closely you'll see there is also black in the more porous sections of the wood. apparently the paint soaks much deeper into these spots (i painted the whole rim and then just sanded it down). The rim is also undercut. I would also appreciate input on this decoration attempt. do you think it's successful? The third and final picture is my first ever goblet. it's fairly small as you can see in relation to the quarter next to it. I estimate the cup to be aprx a 32nd of an inch thick. maybe a teeny bit thicker but she is realllll flexible. thanks guys!

thanks guys. and robert, there is no base on the segmented, laminated, whatever it's called platter. I simply made a recess and expanded the chuck. I'd say theres probbaly a 1/16" foot though. i can take a picture if you'd like to see.

Hi All 3 look good. The laminated platter is cool it is not a segmented platter. To stop color bleeding into adjacent grain first apply 2 coats or more of blond shellac sanding with 600 between coats.Hope this is of help Regards Tambotie.

lets see, the exotic hardwoods platter i used tung oil, which was a mistake, it's been a week and it's still tacky. the ash platter, i used tung oil and then poly over the top, the picture shows just tung oil though. and the goblet is tung oil as well. i have a new addiction to tung oil, perhaps cause i love smelling it

Nice job. Glad to see the blanks are getting well used.

I should have warned you about finishing those segmented blanks ... the problem is that some of the woods react differently than others. I find that shellac and/or polyurethane are best. If there are any cocobolo pieces, you should start with DEWAXED shellac (couple of coats) and then stay with that or go to poly.
