Cupressus Arizonica Root




                                                                 

                                                           



This is the work made with the other half cupressus root showed above:
it's 35 cm D x 19 cm h
Finish it with linseed oil and turpentine mixed, and few beeswax dust melt on that..
The inside is terrible, i mean i wasn't able to clean smooth the surface..
The fibers goes everywhere, hard to have a clean cut but not a scrape..











I used a 5/8 long and strong Henry Tylor bowl gouge for all the job,
and a nose screaper lasting passage. The fibers goes everywhere, and i found too difficoult have a clean cut.






Cheers
Paolo
