The goblet's dyes are black, green, yellow and a tad of golden orange. The inside is natural and the undercut rim was colored black with a marker so it wouldn't bleed. 1/16th thick and finished with tung oil and nervously Beall buffed.

Hope he thinks it was worth it. It's 9-1/2&quot; dia. x 2&quot; tall. Finished with Tung Oil and buffed.

Key word being spalted. Kept on going anyway and this is what it turned into. 11&quot; x 2.5&quot; tall. My main objective was to make the sloping bowl bottom look like it was coming straight through the top. You can't see it in this photo, but it worked out OK.

Big Leaf Maple that I hoped to save the spikes on, but it just wasn't in the cards I guess. It's dyed black (heavy around the edges), red and yellow. The pedestal is from another piece of scrap maple burl. 7.5&quot; tall x 7.5&quot; wide at the rim, 1/16 thick and finished with tung oil and nervously Beall buffed. All comments are always more than welcome and thanks for looking, Don<br /><br />15 comments http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=10533&title=maple-burl-cap-compote&cat=500 http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=10533&title=maple-burl-cap-compote&cat=500 Mon, 16 Jul 2012 15:35:38 +0000 Eucalyptus Box <a href="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/showphoto.php?photo=10523&amp;title=eucalyptus-box&amp;cat=500"><img class="imgborder" title="Eucalyptus_Box.jpg" border="0" src="http://www.woodturnersresource.com/wrphotopost/data/500/thumbs/Eucalyptus_Box.jpg" alt="Eucalyptus_Box.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: Don Leydens<br /><br />Description}: This box is a culmination of Mike Stafford's box class at John Campbell Folk School, Jamie Donaldson's winged bowl demo (at the class)and a rock shop near Campbell. What a class that was! A wild but terrific bunch. I didn't bring anything home, so I made this as soon as I got back. It's made from a block of Eucalyptus I bought off one of the students. 10&quot; X 4.5&quot; to the top of the &quot;flame&quot;. They tell me the polished slice of rock is purple, so I'll go with that. All comments welcome and appreciated.

This platter kind of gave me a run for my money. It had a ton (OK, half a ton) of sand, gravel and little rocks in most of the bark inclusions. I could only cut for about 3&quot; before I had to reach for another tool, or re-sharpen. The contrast between the soft, and in places, punky wood made it a challenge to sand or cut. I even went through 1-1/2 Hunter carbide tips getting it done. Anyway, this is what came out of it. It's 17.5&quot; dia. and finished with Tung Oil and Beall buffed. All comments are more than welcome and thanks for looking.

This was a big Oak burl that I got from a local sawyer. He's now my best buddy :-) It's 7&quot; tall X 14&quot; across. Thanks to Frank Penta for his help and the use of his Oneway lathe. I had a ball turning this. It's finished with Tung Oil and Beall buffed. All comments are more than welcome.

I really enjoyed turning this even though it was a little nerve wracking at times worrying about an important piece coming off, but none did. A bit punky in spots, but some shellac mix helped that a lot. Some texturing along the rim and some on the back as well.

Some texturing and a maple finial (my first one). Thanks to Frank Penta who talked me into making a lid for the center. 11&quot; dia. X 4&quot; tall with the finial. The bottom has some decoration also. Finished with Tung oil and Beall buffed.

All the grain does the work. The only coloring is on the rim and the sun, which is a knot that's dyed two different yellows. It's 16&quot; across and 2&quot; tall. Finished with Tung Oil and Ren. wax. In person the waves have more of a rolling affect given the ample amount of chatoyance. I suppose I should start naming some of my pieces. Does anyone have a better title than Sunset Voyage? All comments are more than welcome.

This is a Purpleheart platter with a lot of dots :-) The shells are burned with a nice Burnmaster. I didn't have the right tip for the dots, so I used a soldering iron which didn't like to stay very hot. Took forever! It's 16&quot; diameter and 2&quot; tall. Finished with Tung Oil and Ren. wax. This was tough to photograph with my limited skills so I added another photo for detail.

Both her and her Mom enjoyed looking at dragonflies darting around and she thought it would be a great way of remembering her Mother. That particular bowl was long gone, but I made her this one. I liked her Mother also. Very nice person. The dragon fly represents her Mother watching over and nurturing the flower which is Lorraine, the daughter. The Mom might be in silhouette, but the colorful wings show her memory is still very much alive. I shipped this to Lorraine yesterday and I sure hope she likes it. The wood is maple, about 11&quot; diam. and finished with Tung Oil and Beall buffed. The inside is pyrograghy, markers and acrylic paint.

It stands 5&quot; tall X 7&quot; dia. I wanted to save the knot and got as much of it as I could given the shape of the wood. Finished with Tung Oil and Beall buffed.

The woodburned trees on the box's side were meant to go with the tree insert on top. 5&quot; dia. X 2-1/2&quot; tall. This was turned face-grain and luckily it's been very stable so far (a month).

Many months of drying, cracking and pieces flying off when being turned. It started as a huge bowl (oh well). Even when I got it this size and nice and hollowed out, another piece flew off. That's why it curves down like it does (I don't give up easily). Anyway, it's about 12&quot; wide and finished with Tung Oil and Beall buffed. I put the coolest gold tint on this also, but it came off with the Tung Oil. I'll have to try that again with a lacquer finish on something else.

Because this was a fairly shallow piece, I lowered the outside rim to give the bowl section the appearance of more height. It's 9&quot; dia. X 1-1/2&quot; tall. Some color added for highlights.

He saw what looked like a &quot;leaf&quot; pattern in the cross section of wood and wanted to know if I could do anything with it. Well, after cutting off the waste wood it looked like a dragon fly (on the left side)(to me). So, this one is for him. Hope you guys get a kick out of it. Nothing added at all, just wood. It's 6&quot; dia. and finished with Tung Oil and Beall buffed.
