Other turnings...

A friend of The Boss is visiting and brought a decent camera!!!

She's allowed me to shoot a few pics with it...

p

A Jacaranda NE bowl...

Plain maple that needed a bunch of wood hardener in order to keep it together. Not much figure, despite the rot; so's I put some ebony stain on prior to turning it down...

Closeup of a hackberry box bottom...

A staghorn sumac bowl...


An extremely rotten maple bowl. I've used >12 oz of wood hardener on this cussed thing, and I'll spend a month trying to get some semblance of a finish on it.

...and a young anole.
There was a recent hatch, and the place is crawling with 'em!
They eat bugs, so they are welcome.

...ever notice how "I'm sorry" and "I apologize" mean the same thing, unless you are at a funeral..?

there all great I think I like the sumac best
round here sumac is more of a shrub bout an
inch diameter and 8' tall and spread like weeds
spalted maple can be a real challenge, at least for
me even with razor sharp tools and really lite cuts
it'll tear out
and the NE bowl is real nice love the finish
what did you use for finish on that one

I used WOP, 'bout a dozen coats, sanding periodically...
Then spray gloss poly...

You can really see a reflection off of the lower aspect of it in the pic...

...and Thanks!

You're killing me with all of this gorgeous stuff. I am amazed. Great work.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"
