    Eruption


    This piece of Box Elder has a lot going on! With the curl, red flame and especially the natures own portrait. Soon as this one was roughed out I thought it looked Like a Volcano. and with My good buddy Kevins advice I named this one Eruption
    It Measures 10 1/4" Finish is Deft (spray can) and wet sanded to 1500.
    Thanks for looking.

    Finely named! I have taken to naming my turnings. Makes them easier to remember

        That is beautiful. It reminds me of our Mt St Helens after it blew it's top.

          Love the way you used the natural beauty of the wood for a great effect.

                Great plate, Jim! Do you spray the Deft (lacquer?) while spinning?

                Regards,
                Tom

                p.s. I generally just name the turnings that come flying off the chuck at me. [B)] Most get roughly the same name, and none can be repeated here.

                  No Tom I sprayed it off the lathe I have not used the spray Deft Much I seem to be getting better at it with each piece.
                  I have found to get as much on as possible without runs to flatten it out so there is not as much orange peal to sand.

                    I name my stuff to...

                    One is named "that P.O.S. that I turned some time ago"

                    another one is "that mother #^&(!@ that fell off the lathe and put a dent in the wall"


                    I also have one called "that son of a %@#%^ that I could not keep from tearing out"

                    yes indeed, most of my work has a name.....

                    That is a very beautiful piece Jim. Something to be proud of.
