Burr Oak Winged Bowl ‘Copper & Caramel’

In this week’s woodturning project, I go kinda longways rather than completely round with a winged burr oak bowl with copper powder infill and turn more air than wood. Again!

me_7There is something about a piece of wood from a burr that is as gorgeous as it can be hard to turn. The grain runs in all sorts of different directions which can make the tool vibrate making a good cut tricky, but the end result is generally stunning.

And this piece, given to me my friend and fellow turner Mike Waldt is no exception. Two thirds along the piece, the burr ends and turns into ‘normal’ wood again, helping to give this piece a very unique look and feel.

Watch the video below to see the process as well as the infill technique using epoxy resin and copper powder…and below that, there are some useful links to find the stuff I used in this project on Amazon and eBay – especially the metal powders used. And below that is a gallery of images of this piece.[membership level=”0″]
