I was turning whatever I blanks found laying around the shop and grabbed this little Bradford pear blank. As I went I found 2 bad checks so I was turning a cove to see how deep they went. As I did it started to look like a cauldron but the checks ran almost to the center of the blank. What to do?

I grabbed some CA and fixed the cracks enough to hold then finished turning. I left it rough to add to the old battered look. I think I will turn a little wand to go with it. :laughing:

Nice!

One question: what is "clear stain"? (I'm having trouble getting my head around the concept of something that is clear being called stain ...)
It is just that. I call it clear but it is sold as natural. It changes the color very little but does make the grain pop.

That's a nice looing piece Ghost :thumbsup:

A few years ago I roughed out a silver birch blank in that shape .
A club member reckoned a handle would make it easier to get it out from under the bed :laughing:

I like the idea of it being Witch's Cauldron better .:smile:

And yeah , 'clear stain' makes no sense to me either :blink:
