Woodturning - Rooty Firewood to Beautiful Vase

  • Опубліковано 26 лют 2022
  • In this woodturning video I will transform a firewood tree root into and beautiful looking hybrid vase. This fully air-dried root has some much character but certainly needed an artistic eye to rescue from fire and give another chance to live longer. With the help of some epoxy resin I was able to turn this project around and make something very modern and decorative piece.

    Beautiful ! I've always been fascinated by things made on lathes. I wondered how you would fill in the gaps. What gets mixed with the hardener? I have some idea by doing bodywork how the mixture reacts and hardens, just wondered what you use.
