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.

    I have to say that I normally don't like wood with resin, but you picked very organic colors for this, so it doesn't look out of place (the resin, that is). I think this vase is quite gorgeous.

    Its very pretty, but I liked its original look also, you could take the same thing bead blast it to remove the bark mostly,
    And pour it into plastic then shape it into a table leg, that would have also looked good, or maybe turn it into a lamp for your desk and put in led lights in the resens
