Woodturning - Rooty Firewood to Beautiful Vase

  • Published on Feb 26, 2022 veröffentlicht
  • 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.

    My dad used to have a lathe. My brother got into woodworking with it.
    His wife would suggest he make her a particular item (a simple, Ford-type item) and he'd present her with a Cadillac! A true artist!! 😊
    I really enjoy watching these!

    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.
