Oak Cherry and unknowWood


Here a couple of bowl made using a seasoned Oak,
It's been hard turn it, but took really good silky finish with wax...
both are around 18 cm diameter, 7 cm high...








Then i join three piece of Local seasoned Cherry,
and made a plate around 78 cm diameter...
i just have one piece of cherry with yellow sapwood,
i decide to use that slab in the middle...

The first thing came to mind after finish the plate was that i could have used some 2 mm thick veneers to separate the three cherry slabs...
I used yellow glue to join the slabs.


a Cherry Bowl



then payed a visit a good friend of mine,




But cool things also happened,
i found a big already cut Tree of.....????
i really can't identify...
i just associate the Wood, its colour to what i see on Web.....
i found in this amazing site some of similar,
http://www.hobbithouseinc.com/personal/woodpics/pink%20flamewood.htm..
it's called flamewood...
The wood i got is fresh cut,
i don't know if would keep it its colours...

                                the middle piece show in this picture is black poplar, cut near the origin...
                           Must have some starting burls figure on it....i suppose...i hope above all...
                                       This is the first run to home....i had four more...



in the fray i took a couple of plane wood logs as well,
inside of these planeWood logs is completely spongy, with some black line here and there....
the wood's weight is unbelieveble, reallly soft,
i'll take a picture of that wood as soon as i get back the camera...
and some pear and Oak..



Cheers
