Because I so enjoyed working with Redheart, I bought another small piece that I turned into this shallow dish. I am reconfirmed in my enjoyment of Redheart as it cuts so cleanly and requires minimal clean up sanding, to say nothing of the vibrant and deep color. I only wish I could source Redheart in a larger size.
All major cuts were made using the Easy Wood Tool system on my Robust American Beauty lathe, although I do use Robert Sorby bowl gouges for light final passes before sanding. Forward chucking was in a Nova Chuck, while reverse chucking was done using a Nova Chuck with Cole Jaws. Sanding was with Gold and Green Wave sanding discs from Packard Woodworks. Final finish is Shellawax.
As always, I wish all my readers a great experience in whatever your wood working interests happen to be and to those who like working with lathes especially, do a good turn today!
