When my daughter was only three, 22 years ago, we went to one of Sydney beautiful beaches. She started collecting colorful stones, soon my wife and I joined her just for fun. But deep inside my mind I was planing for something to put woodturning and stones together…’Another crazy idea, Sam’, I said to myself.
Less than a week after, when Ashley lost interest in her collection, the plan was already on paper and some wood was selected.
This was the result. A 750 mm tall wooden turned vase decorated by colorful stones.
The solid timber which’s used here is unknown furniture timber imported from USA and some plywood, flatly and vertically laminated. Behind the stones in both upper and lower levels, there are thin cylindrical boxes to hold them by Good Grip, a glue like used for tiling. Timber and stones were sprayed with clear wattle.
THE TIME YOU ENJOY WASTING IS NOT WASTED TIME.
