WOODTURNED OBJECTS FROM NATIVE AUSTRALIAN TIMBERS
 

Ring Gidgee Bowl - slightly thinner in the walls and
good contrast with the sapwood present.

10" diam x 4" high

Small fat rim bowl from Ring Gidgee.
The rings are very prominent in this piece.

10" diam x 3" high

Waddy Wood bowl high with fat rim. This timber will turn
a deep purple with time similar to purple Gidgee.
Second densest timber in the world.

10" diam x 3" high

Smaller bowl with thinner rim slightly concave.
Made from Waddy Wood - an uncommon timber that is
deep olive green when first worked and slowly turns deep
purple with time and oxidization.
This can be seen around the sapwood to the heartwood line.

10" diam x 3" high

Small bowl from Poplar Box Burl, . The side and rim are
broken using a couple of fine lines or a bead.
Some of the prettiest burl available.

10" diameter approx 3" high

Textured rim platter made from fiddle back Budgeroo.
This shell pattern in the grain is not that common and
when found is usually in the bend of a branch.
The texturing is done using an angle grinder.

12" diameter

Painted rim platter from River Red Gum. This is one
of the techniques I use on my platters. This is a stippled
finish where the metallic colours are dabbed over the
base colour using a sponge.

12" diameter

Thick edge bowl from River Red Gum. The textured rim
is done using a texturing wheel held to the work while the
lathe is turning.

12" diameter

Thick rim bowl from Coolibah timber showing a small amount of rot in one spot. The rim is broken with a couple of fine lines.

12" diameter
