For this goblet, I used some new guinea rosewood from Anagote. I used my mini lathe from record power (Dml250). I sanded it to 12000 grit with some micromesh and finished it with some Kunos oil then some wax. It took about 1 day of work. I am very happy with my work because I have only been doing wood-turning for about 4 months and I am “underage” for most turning classes.

Hope Chest

This is the hope chest that my student Nick recently completed using a stunning array of timber from Anagote. The box features hand cut dovetails and a resin inlay in a top with quarter sawn Silky Oak, hence the ray figure. The carcass is made using quarter sawn NG Rosewood with a “bees wing” figure. Inside the box is a set of Silver Ash trays which also has fiddle back figure and the Black Walnut pins were handmade. The trays are lined with orange leather also from a local supplier, John at Hide Leather. This project not only shows a high level of skill from a student but also showcases local Marrickville businesses. Thank you to the boys at Anagote for their help in directing me to such wonderful boards.
