It started as a 5&quot; cube of mystery wood (pecan?). Completed it is slightly under 5&quot;x5&quot;x5&quot;. The finish is polyurethane. I managed to maintain four of the original corners and six of the original surface planes. I hope you enjoy it Philip.

This one certainly was a challenge. I think I pushed my envelope a little too far, but it was fun. The original thought was a symetrical (top to bottom) candle holder. That changed a lot as the wood kept adding desigh changes. I had hoped that the wood would move and add some additional interest to the wings, instead it split, checked and cracked as it dried while on the lathe. One of the bottom wing tips in somewhere on the far side of my shop, well four of the original corners are still there. I have a lot to learn about turning green wood. If PhilipE will give me day or two, I think I can improve the looks quite a bit in the finishing process, but he definitly is not coming out on the best end of this trade. If not for the spirit of the challenge this one probably would not have lived to see the light outside my shop.<br /><br />5 comments http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=6149&title=cube-challenge&cat=596 http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=6149&title=cube-challenge&cat=596 Mon, 09 Jun 2008 22:45:33 +0000 Cube Challenge Dark Side <a href="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=6138&amp;title=cube-challenge-dark-side&amp;cat=596"><img class="imgborder" title="C_T_Cube_Challenge2.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/data/596/thumbs/C_T_Cube_Challenge2.jpg" alt="C_T_Cube_Challenge2.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: roundwood<br /><br />Description}: And now for the dark side of the piece. I widened the cracks with a dremel tool and filled them with epoxy and Turquoise. The ground them down with the dremel as well.<br /><br />1 comment http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=6138&title=cube-challenge-dark-side&cat=596 http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=6138&title=cube-challenge-dark-side&cat=596 Sun, 08 Jun 2008 22:40:22 +0000 Cube Challenge Piece <a href="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=6137&amp;title=cube-challenge-piece&amp;cat=596"><img class="imgborder" title="C_TCubeChallenge1.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/data/596/thumbs/C_TCubeChallenge1.jpg" alt="C_TCubeChallenge1.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: roundwood<br /><br />Description}: I started with a 5 in. square cube. Final dimensions are 6 1/4 W X 4 1/4 H X 3/16 thick. Finish is 6 coats Danish Oil hand buffed with Micromesh. I've turned this shape before but added the following new twists. 1) The wood was very green. I turned it thin in hopes it would warp and I would get an interesting shape. It only warped a little on one side. 2) The wood is sort of a mystery wood. Best I can tell it may be Hackberry, but I'm not sure. 3) The 3rd design challenge was that as it dried it cracked on the back side where I had to leave the pith. I decided to embelish the cracks rather than fill them. This piece definitely has a ying and a yang (Good / Bad) aspect about it. The front is very light with nice grain patterns. The back around the pith is much darker. I hope the recipient is able to identify the wood.<br /><br />8 comments http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=6137&title=cube-challenge-piece&cat=596 http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=6137&title=cube-challenge-piece&cat=596 Sun, 08 Jun 2008 22:37:45 +0000 Lyptus candle chalice <a href="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=6136&amp;title=lyptus-candle-chalice&amp;cat=596"><img class="imgborder" title="IMGP1533.JPG" border="0" src="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/data/596/thumbs/IMGP1533.JPG" alt="IMGP1533.JPG" /></a><br /><br />by: cstrunk<br /><br />Description}: Laminated Lyptus 3x8/4, then trimmed to the 5x5x5 cube: As directed I tried a new shape, with the 4-point, spread opening that changes to a honey pot base.

There are a total of 4 cubes with the smallest being 1/2&quot; . This was accomplished by boring 3 different diameters at exact depths on each surface. I had to use drops of CA glue on the corners of the small cube to make sure it stayed in place.<br /><br />13 comments http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=6134&title=cube-c-amp-t&cat=596 http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=6134&title=cube-c-amp-t&cat=596 Sun, 08 Jun 2008 21:54:27 +0000 Cube Challenge: Walnut &amp; butternut <a href="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=6132&amp;title=cube-challenge-walnut-amp-butternut&amp;cat=596"><img class="imgborder" title="bias_cube_collage-800.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/data/596/thumbs/bias_cube_collage-800.jpg" alt="bias_cube_collage-800.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: Bob Hamilton<br /><br />Description}: Glued up a cube from walnut and butternut. Turned it on the bias to produce the bowl. Attempted to incorporate the parted off waste section into the lid and originally had a 2&quot; maple bias turned cube as the finial, but it looked way too top heavy. Cut off the maple finial and made this walnut one with the square section to maintain the &quot;theme&quot;, but I still think it looks too top heavy. I made another lid but I think I went too far in the other direction with it, as it looks too flat and plain to me. Partner will get both lids and can decide for themself. :)<br /><br />7 comments http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=6132&title=cube-challenge-walnut-amp-butternut&cat=596 http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=6132&title=cube-challenge-walnut-amp-butternut&cat=596 Sun, 08 Jun 2008 20:19:27 +0000 Oage Orange Cube Challenge piece <a href="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=6131&amp;title=oage-orange-cube-challenge-piece&amp;cat=596"><img class="imgborder" title="DSC05634.JPG" border="0" src="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/data/596/thumbs/DSC05634.JPG" alt="DSC05634.JPG" /></a><br /><br />by: Philip Peak<br /><br />Description}: I can't believe I am the first to post. I guess you could call this a hollow form, I cut my 5 &quot;cube and using a jig cut two opposing corners of the cube to give me somplace to mount between centers. Then I turned the bottom to shape and placed an tenon to grab on to. Then flopped it over cut it to shape and then hollowed it out. I had thought about making the wings thinner but was having some problems with chipping out on the end grain and said to heck with it.<br /><br />9 comments http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=6131&title=oage-orange-cube-challenge-piece&cat=596 http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=6131&title=oage-orange-cube-challenge-piece&cat=596 Sun, 08 Jun 2008 18:26:38 +0000
