Silver Beech Burl Bowl

New 2021 This is a gorgeous piece of N.Z. Silver Beech burl was first turned green with outside then sealed with a wood sealer and set aside to dry. This was weighed every couple of weeks until such time there was no difference between subsequent weighings this was about 3 months. As the piece had quite a big bark inclusion and a flat face from a chain saw cut i had to came up with two ideas on how to over come these issues. The chainsaw cut was planed flat then a double lamination of birds eye Silver Beech and Colombian Purple Heart glued to this face. The bark inclusion cavity i hot glued a thin plastic mould around it this enabled me to fill this void with a blue transparent resin. It was then remounted on the lathe and turned to completion. The end effect is quite stunning and such a cool way to use rather a useless piece. Finish is a solution of boiled linseed oil polyurethane and vegetable turps buffed the waxed
