Chinaberry Bark Inclusion Bowl

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Chinaberry Bark Inclusion BowlHere is another piece from the Chinaberry that I recently acquired. It is the same tree/wood that I turned the Chinaberry Live Edge Vase.
I am very happy with the great color in this piece. I was hoping for some of the same crazy grain that the Chinaberry Live Edge Vase has but that blank was made from a crotch piece of the tree. This is more of a side grain with natural edge and a bit of bark inclusion.This piece was another quick turning and the only issue that came up was a bit of chatter because of the separation in the body due to the bark. The colors are stunning and for this reason I did not use a poly wipe on, shellac coat or cellulose sealer.This piece was simply sanded up to 400 grit. I then used the Beall buffing process with tripoli, white diamond and caranuaba wax. I did use Howard's Feed and Wax before the caranuaba to bring out chatoyance of the grain. I have not done many pieces with bark inclusions and I enjoyed the process to retain as much it as possible.This bowl is a little thicker than the previous vase. The wall is roughly 3/16th”
The bowl is 5 3/4” at its widest and is 2 1/2” tall.Here are a few more pics of the Chinaberry Bark Inclusion Bowl.
Thanks for looking.

Portable Outdoor Table, in an afternoon

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Portable Outdoor Table, in an afternoonHi All,I know I have been super slack for over two years…... Those of you in the know will understand that due to Covid and other Political reasons my career has been somewhat destroyed. Anyways, here we are on the Farm in Northern NSW Australia. We were flood-affected here and the shed went under although fortuntly my right-hand man Rob B (Robcastle) has been an enormous help getting all equipment back up and running.Back to the project…....... I wanted the self-satisfaction of starting and finishing a project in one afternoon. Having cleaned the wood stack out before lunch with Lovie Cheryl I had lots of treated pine offcuts, small pieces. (I tend not to burn them in the BBQ due to arsenic content)
I worked on the theory of Crappy, offcut wood into a functional piece. A small table to sit by the fire and rest beer on came to mind.The joints are rough butt joints merely clamped and screwed together. The top was once again of treated pine decking pieces.
All in an afternoon that resulted in a beer by the fire. The new addition to our small family “The Dog” named Rip seemed to like it…....Thanks all for checking in, having been absent from here for two years I don't deserve comments.
Cheers to all,Kind Regards
AnthonyEDIT Some of the pics show the new, under construction, live edge slab style woodworking bench in the background, still under construction.
