Spalted Beech ornamental dish
This shallow dish is 13cm in diameter and made from a piece of spalted Beech. Turned round and the back was turned on a conventional lathe. I then cut the outside using a 16 bump rosette on my Rose Engine and my new cutting frame. The cutting frame was then re positioned and the same rosette was used to cut the interior, going progressively deeper towards the centre to form the dish. The spalting seems to hide the ornamentation inside the dish so I may try gilding it with artificial gold leaf to see if it shows any better.
