This week, my woodturning project is possibly my most adventurous yet – An inside out sphere tealight holder made from sycamore which was coloured and gold gilted on the inside. This all sits in a sycamore base.
‘Spheroid’ was a beautiful project to complete. It took me three days from start to finish, but that does include allowing glue to dry – so I guess, about 6 hours turning all in all. There were challenges along the way, not least because I didn’t properly think through the design (which I have rectified in the accompanying worksheet), which meant I had to think of a rescue solution which actually turned out really well.
The video of the piece on YouTube is 27 minutes long and is as short as I can get it. The full length video is in two parts and downloadable for free until the end of April 2016. Download the full length (45 minutes) videos here.
Below is the YouTube version of the video, and below that is a collection of eBay links to the products I used in it.
