The foot is round, 10&quot; dia. x 1/4&quot; thick. SOAKED in Mahoney's walnut oil (still wet as shown here) and now it's buffed back to a very natural polished finish with Mahoney's Walnut Oil Wax. At 18 3/4&quot; on the diagonal, I had 5/8&quot; between the corners and the lathe bed...now that was fun.<br /><br />9 comments http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=3892&title=walnut-sink&cat=500 http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=3892&title=walnut-sink&cat=500 Tue, 09 Jan 2007 04:33:56 +0000 Cocobolo Bowl <a href="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=3818&amp;title=cocobolo-bowl&amp;cat=500"><img class="imgborder" title="Cocobolo_bowl_finished.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/data/500/thumbs/Cocobolo_bowl_finished.jpg" alt="Cocobolo_bowl_finished.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: Chris Wright<br /><br />Description}: Cocobolo bowl, verging on the definition of a vase...turned end grain (that was a treat). 5&quot; tall x 3 7/8&quot; at the rim (4 1/16&quot; at the widest point). First applied tung oil treatment, but this piece had a very high oil content and the darn oil wouldn't do more than tack up, so I wet sanded it back with acetone and after drying, applied just a simple coat of Briwax. It has a nice soft sheen now that looks like it has a hand rubbed oil finish...strange how one process leads to another to get the results you originally wanted. ;) The foot is recessed and follows the outside curve ala Stuart Batty style. Wall thickness is 3/16&quot; throughout. I posted the 2 views to show the very different faces of this piece.<br /><br />5 comments http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=3818&title=cocobolo-bowl&cat=500 http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=3818&title=cocobolo-bowl&cat=500 Fri, 29 Dec 2006 06:40:40 +0000 Not a bad save... <a href="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=3816&amp;title=not-a-bad-save&amp;cat=500"><img class="imgborder" title="Carob_platter.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/data/500/thumbs/Carob_platter.jpg" alt="Carob_platter.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: Chris Wright<br /><br />Description}: This is the Carob platter I posted a few weeks ago that as a rough turning had warped to kingdom come. After getting brave one night and playing with centering it a few times I was able to shave 3 really bad inches off the diameter and save this much of it. Carob, 13&quot; dia. x 1 1/2&quot; tall. Thickness varies from 1/8&quot; at the rim to 1/4&quot; thick at the foot. Finished with tung oil &amp; briwax.<br /><br />4 comments http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=3816&title=not-a-bad-save&cat=500 http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=3816&title=not-a-bad-save&cat=500 Fri, 29 Dec 2006 06:21:06 +0000 Ambrosia Maple Sink <a href="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=3756&amp;title=ambrosia-maple-sink&amp;cat=500"><img class="imgborder" title="2Ambrosia_Maple_sink_web.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/data/500/thumbs/2Ambrosia_Maple_sink_web.jpg" alt="2Ambrosia_Maple_sink_web.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: Chris Wright<br /><br />Description}: This is a special commission I am working on...an actual sink for a guest powder room. The house is being custom built and they wanted one of those sinks that is a bowl that sits on the counter only instead of glass they wanted wood. After discussing it with the architect, this is what we decided on. Ambrosia Maple, 12" dia x 3" tall. The drain flange and tailpipe nut are recessed and drilled through the bottom of basically a salad bowl. The bowl is 1/4" wall thickness throughout. I am still working on the finish, it's a new one for me. System Three "Clear Coat" finish, it's a penetrating epoxy resin that once cured (a couple of days in a room 70 degrees) is waterproof. I think we just found a new solution to all of those "oops" bowls we all have! It was kind of weird putting a hole in the bottom of a salad bowl on purpose!<br /><br />7 comments http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=3756&title=ambrosia-maple-sink&cat=500 http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=3756&title=ambrosia-maple-sink&cat=500 Tue, 19 Dec 2006 08:06:33 +0000 Box Trio <a href="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=3755&amp;title=box-trio&amp;cat=500"><img class="imgborder" title="2boxes_JM.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/data/500/thumbs/2boxes_JM.jpg" alt="2boxes_JM.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: Chris Wright<br /><br />Description}: Here are some boxes I did for one of my Christmas orders.

The left is Quinta and Carob, the Right is Buckeye Burl (with a bit of turquiose where a bark inclusion flew out) and Walnut. Both have Blackwood perches. The are about 2 1/2&quot; dia. x 3 1/4&quot; tall. After doing them, I got bored and realized I had no way to display them at work so I made the stand. Basic steel grounding wire from the local big box, wrapped with 20 ga. wire to hold them together and then epoxied into the spalted maple base.<br /><br />3 comments http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=3480&title=birdhouses-and-stand&cat=500 http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=3480&title=birdhouses-and-stand&cat=500 Mon, 30 Oct 2006 06:29:50 +0000 Turned & Spun Christmas Ornament <a href="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=3464&amp;title=turned-spun-christmas-ornament&amp;cat=500"><img class="imgborder" title="2bimaterial_Christmas_orname.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/data/500/thumbs/2bimaterial_Christmas_orname.jpg" alt="2bimaterial_Christmas_orname.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: Chris Wright<br /><br />Description}: Well, here's my first project involving both metal spinning and woodturning.

Camphor Burl with ebony, 5" dia. x 5 3/8" overall height, 1/8" wall thickess. Finished with Tung oil and briwax. It was fortunate enough to be chosen as a piece in the formal critique by Andi Wolfe, Michael Mocho and Keith Gotschall. They seemed to enjoy it and made much mention (favorable) of the form and the finial design. I was pleasantly surprised.<br /><br />9 comments http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=3257&title=camphor-burl-ebony&cat=500 http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=3257&title=camphor-burl-ebony&cat=500 Sun, 24 Sep 2006 07:49:23 +0000 Gift for mom... <a href="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=3189&amp;title=gift-for-mom&amp;cat=500"><img class="imgborder" title="2moms_box.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/data/500/thumbs/2moms_box.jpg" alt="2moms_box.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: Chris Wright<br /><br />Description}: My mom has been pretty supportive on a few things lately so I thought I would give her a cool little box when I was visiting next week during the symposium.

It is 2 3/8&quot; tall at the highest point and 3 3/4&quot; diameter. It was a pretty standard branch section with one high point, so to give it a bit more character and movement, I adjusted it off center a bit to get it to &quot;lean&quot; and to get one really low side. The customer also wanted a very light piece, so I bleached it and then used Briwax as the finish. Has a nice fine sheen.<br /><br />7 comments http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=3169&title=birch-natural-edge-bowl&cat=500 http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=3169&title=birch-natural-edge-bowl&cat=500 Tue, 05 Sep 2006 04:55:39 +0000 First bowl detail shots <a href="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=3121&amp;title=first-bowl-detail-shots&amp;cat=500"><img class="imgborder" title="2Our_first_bowl_collage.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/data/500/thumbs/2Our_first_bowl_collage.jpg" alt="2Our_first_bowl_collage.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: Chris Wright<br /><br />Description}: Here are some pics of the &quot;first bowl&quot; by itself.

This piece was made to be a background piece in a independent film that an associate if shooting this weekend. He was nice enough to offer to place my piece in a key scene to help promote my work if I turned something cool for him. 7 1/2" tall x 4" wide, sycamore. Turned, carved, bleached (3 times), sanding sealer and 2 coat lacquer finish buffed to a satin sheen. The name literally translates to torment of the wind, but is also a phrase translated to Thoughts that Torment me. The scene in the movie is a very intimate (non-sexually) and emotional one where essentially a man is with the woman he has recently fallen in love with in her last moments. My initial thought was a piece that celebrated the "happiness" of the moment as they are together, just being in this place but then during the carving stages I realized the duality of the moment, he's in love and happy to be able to be with her in these moments, but at the same time he must be in torment over the knowledge that he will lose her in this life when the moment ends. The thorns represent his torment, twisted and entwined with his happiness, fighting in duality while the soft white exterior represents the purity and innocence of the moment they are sharing.<br /><br />26 comments http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=3056&title=tormento-del-viento&cat=500 http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=3056&title=tormento-del-viento&cat=500 Sun, 13 Aug 2006 05:17:39 +0000 Tormento del Viento - view 2 <a href="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=3055&amp;title=tormento-del-viento-view-2&amp;cat=500"><img class="imgborder" title="2tormento_del_viento_side2.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/data/500/thumbs/2tormento_del_viento_side2.jpg" alt="2tormento_del_viento_side2.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: Chris Wright<br /><br />1 comment http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=3055&title=tormento-del-viento-view-2&cat=500 http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=3055&title=tormento-del-viento-view-2&cat=500 Sun, 13 Aug 2006 05:05:19 +0000 Tormento del Viento - view 3 <a href="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=3054&amp;title=tormento-del-viento-view-3&amp;cat=537"><img class="imgborder" title="2tormento_del_viento_side1.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/data/537/thumbs/2tormento_del_viento_side1.jpg" alt="2tormento_del_viento_side1.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: Chris Wright<br /><br />3 comments http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=3054&title=tormento-del-viento-view-3&cat=537 http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=3054&title=tormento-del-viento-view-3&cat=537 Sun, 13 Aug 2006 05:04:38 +0000 alternate view of lidded hollow form... <a href="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=3021&amp;title=alternate-view-of-lidded-hollow-form&amp;cat=500"><img class="imgborder" title="2camphor_burl_blackwood_2.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/data/500/thumbs/2camphor_burl_blackwood_2.jpg" alt="2camphor_burl_blackwood_2.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: Chris Wright<br /><br />Description}: just another view to show the great figure :)<br /><br />6 comments http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=3021&title=alternate-view-of-lidded-hollow-form&cat=500 http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=3021&title=alternate-view-of-lidded-hollow-form&cat=500 Sun, 06 Aug 2006 12:45:37 +0000 Lidded hollow form <a href="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=3020&amp;title=lidded-hollow-form&amp;cat=500"><img class="imgborder" title="2camphor_burl_blackwood.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/data/500/thumbs/2camphor_burl_blackwood.jpg" alt="2camphor_burl_blackwood.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: Chris Wright<br /><br />Description}: Camphor Burl hollow form with African Blackwood lid & finial. about 6 1/2" tall x 5 1/2" dia. 3/16" wall thickness.

The body is bloodwood, lid is figured, spalted maple, the perch and finial are zircote. The bloodwood is the same weird stuff that I used on my elevated challenge piece, it shines on the lathe then after just a little handling it's dull again, still smooth though. Must be sucking up the finish, may try sanding sealer or wax tomorrow.<br /><br />4 comments http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=2714&title=birdhouse-ornament&cat=528 http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=2714&title=birdhouse-ornament&cat=528 Tue, 20 Jun 2006 04:40:30 +0000 Walnut box <a href="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=2708&amp;title=walnut-box&amp;cat=500"><img class="imgborder" title="2walnut_box.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/data/500/thumbs/2walnut_box.jpg" alt="2walnut_box.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: Chris Wright<br /><br />Description}: Walnut box, 2 5/8" x 2 1/2".

Came out pretty well although the fit is more what the public would want vs. a "turners fit". Tazmanian Myrtle Burl, 3" diameter x 1 15/16" tall. Sanded to 800 & finished with friction polish (3 coats).<br /><br />1 comment http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=2567&title=tazmanian-rose-myrtle-burl-box&cat=500 http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=2567&title=tazmanian-rose-myrtle-burl-box&cat=500 Wed, 31 May 2006 06:27:21 +0000 C & T piece - elevated box <a href="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=2565&amp;title=c-t-piece-elevated-box&amp;cat=530"><img class="imgborder" title="2Challenge_elevated_box.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/data/530/thumbs/2Challenge_elevated_box.jpg" alt="2Challenge_elevated_box.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: Chris Wright<br /><br />Description}: Here's mine, realized after all is said and done that I missed on the diameter a bit, oh well, any wider and it would have looked funny. 6" tall x 2 1/2" diameter. Top down: Bloodwood, Aromatic Cedar, Bloodwood, Padauk. Finished with Hut Crystal Coat. The bloodwood didn't get to a high shine for some reason and the cedar soaked up 3 coats of finish and still has it's own scent!<br /><br />14 comments http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=2565&title=c-t-piece-elevated-box&cat=530 http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=2565&title=c-t-piece-elevated-box&cat=530 Wed, 31 May 2006 06:18:55 +0000 Box Trio <a href="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=2532&amp;title=box-trio&amp;cat=500"><img class="imgborder" title="2box_trio.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/data/500/thumbs/2box_trio.jpg" alt="2box_trio.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: Chris Wright<br /><br />Description}: Here is a group shot of the three boxes I turned this weekend.
