Norfolk Pine Vase

This species i just love turning. Must be turned as soon as possible after the tree is felled to avoid end grain radial cracking. Is turned end grain on to get the neat effect of all the branch knots that grow evenly around the trunk all the way up the tree. By turning quite thick in the wall than soaked in a special solution for a week and then left to slowly dry over a period of about 3 months. Is then remounted on my lathe and returned to a finished state. internal finish is sanding sealer then matte black acrylic then two coats of Danish oil. Outside of vase has three coats of Danish oil the Woodoc wax
