    Turned: Pine sandwitch with artificial filling

    This is my entry in the turned catagory. The accent rings are made with hardboard and the zigzag pattern is mdf. There are 181 pieces total. Each ring has 12 pieces mitered at 15 degrees and individually glued together. The main design ring has 72 individual pieces and is a 1st generation lamination. All rings were run through a Performax 16-32 prior to stack glueing. The finish is a lot of blo to color the hardboard and mdf and multiple coats of lacquer on top of that. It is shorter by 1/2" due to flying off the lathe during the VERY LAST OPERATION! It is 7" tall and 7" in diameter with 1/4" wall thickness.

    Hello Jim,

    I really like what you made from your 2x6! Segmented bowls are high on my list of things I want to try. Inspirational! May I ask roughly how much time this one took?

      Thanks! This one took about 25 hrs including glue drying time. If you choose to do one, hard woods are much easier and will take less time.

        I believe that! I turned a plate with high walls out of a 2x cutoff, and tear out was hard to control. Still think your vase should have gotten more votes. BTW I am glad to hear I am not the only one who's finished pieces have a tendency to fall down when removing them from the lathe or after setting them aside...

          Jim,

          You have stepped past the threshold that separates woodworking from fine art. Now sell that sucker to an art gallery!

            That's the prettiest MDF I've ever seen.

              This is a 2005 thread that is being spammed to the top. There are several others being spammed as well in the 2x6 projects.
              If you can read this you assembled wrong.
