Day 189: Twisted pair
The next President's Challenge will be 'Multi axis'. Tonight I started to play around with an idea I had a couple of nights ago. I knew that I could determine the direction of rotation on a piece so I thought that by altering the points mid way through turning I could reverse the direction of rotation at the mid point of the piece.
It didn't turn out exactly as I'd had it pictured in my head but I was able to reverse the direction as I thought I could.
I also started work on a 3 sided bowl with a twisted exterior. This is similar to my rice bowl but that was done with parallel sides.
Inside view. This one is Box Elder with some burl and some curl but mostly straight grain.
