Well the season started with a request for some staples, good old pencil pots, a chance to use up some of the off-cuts.

This afternoon saw something a little more attractive come out of the shed.

A chunk of Antipodean Burr forced into my collection by Richard Burrow, Thanks Rich, got the brain cells working on finger preservation and sorting out how to clean up the base. Bowl depression 195mm dia.

Hi Chaz,

I am so happy you are posting your work again, you set the standard for elegance, design and finishing.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, the quality of your finish is aspirational. As a relatively new turner I look at your work as the no.1 guide on how to finish a piece.

Beautiful.

Cheers,

Lee.

Hi Chas,
How do you finish the rough part of the burr?
I can see it's shiny so I'm guessing a spray lacquer, but how do you prepare it before that?

1. Wire brush the loose particles off.
2. Secure any unstable bits with CA. if bark still present.
3. Brush on Cellulose Sanding sealer, (I use diluted about 15%) let it soak well in to secure loose bark.
4. Burnish with a domed Bristle Brush attached to the Chestnut Buffing arbor.
5. Burnish again with a smattering of Canauba and/or MC wax.

hello mr chas
=D> regarding the very lovely pencil pots, could i ask what glue / adhesive you use / recommend to join the various woods?
(i am guessing you run the various woods through a thicknesser, glue, clamp then turn? :oops: )

I do like the second elm bowl Chas. The grain is lovely. The first is OK, but I have never been a great fan of very small bases on bowls/goblets/etc. I love to see the elegance and stability of something that won't fall over when in use. Just a personal opinion. Much netter for me if the small foot were to be removed. Lovely shape from there up :D

Elm, love it!
