Woodturning - Cherry Root ball to Amazing Vase

  • katma 6 Eyl 2021
  • I was given a few of these Cherry Root balls a week ago and was so eager to get one on the lathe as I was expecting to see some beautiful grain .... I wasn't disappointed. So a massive thank you to family friend and donator, Andy!
    The piece has been sanded to 7000 grit and finished with a coat of Danish oil and then Wood wax on top once the oil was dry. I wish I could have kept more of the bark on but unfortunately the wood was too dry and most of it flew of the piece while turning.

    Now its that part of the description where I say a massive thank you to all of my subscribers, as we've hit another massive milestone! 7000!!!!! THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH, without your support none of this would be possible. 10k here we come 😁

    Hope you enjoy/enjoyed, please consider liking and subscribing, even give the video a share if you're up for it! Each project and video usually takes 10+ hours to finish, so your support is very much appreciated. More woodturning and woodworking projects will be on their way soon.

    My videos are for entertainment purposes only. I am still relatively new to woodturning and some of my techniques might not be the "best" or safest. When using any tools or machinery always read and understand safety/manufacturers guidelines.
    Yes, I'm aware that wearing gloves while woodturning is considered an unsafe practise. The gloves I wear are tight fitting and don’t have any loose threads. I wear them for the protection of my skin. This is a risk that I am willing to take, however I am still very conscious of the potential danger and I do not touch any spinning parts of the lathe. DO NOT do anything you don’t feel comfortable doing.

    Absolutely love that there is now background music, just the sound of the actual work taking place - the machine, diffrent tools on the wood etc.

    An absolute masterpiece! I've done woodturning, and I must admit I watched about half way , then jumped to the final reveal When I saw the live edge, my jaw dropped. You, sir, have exquisite taste and amazing skills.

    Beautiful grain....

  • Max Edison

    A seriously beautiful natural rim, and to see the vase being made was amazing, as well as educational. I would imagine a 'conventional' vase would be just as stunning, as it would also be blessed with the unique patterns Mother Nature has bestowed upon whichever tree you take your wood from. Great video, thank you!

    Very interesting! I did not expect the grain to come up like that, especially around the natural edge. Thanks!

    I love this. I have loved working with wood my whole life. Long line of amazing woodworker's. But this is my passion. I wish I had the money to get those machines. They make it so much easier!!! Thank you for sharing your beautiful work❤️

    Fantastic job!! What a skill and artform. As others have noted, it's great that you left the natural edge at the top...adds much more character and interesting design. Bravo!!
