Inkstand
Apr 15th, 2017 at 6:19pm
 
Here are two of the three inkstands I made recently (the third is posted in the "embellished" forum). The ink pot and pounce pot on the first stand are turned from walnut. The ink pot captures a glass bottle. The stand is made from maple.

The ink pot and pounce pot on the second stand are made from turned walnut and horn. The pen holder and stand are maple.

Thanks for posting these.

I had to look this up... from Wikipedia:

Pounce
ultimately derives from the Latin for pumice via the old French word "ponce". It is a fine powder, most often made from
powdered cuttlefish bone
that was used both to dry ink and to sprinkle on a rough writing surface to make it smooth enough for writing.

Fine work, Eric. What animal did the horn come from? A big one by the looks of your piece.

Grant: That was just a standard size cow horn. The piece used for the ink pot is about 2-1/4" at the base. The piece for the pounce pot is a little smaller.
