Artistic multi-wood vessel by Anthony Yelapi.
I’m a skilled craftsmen with the lathe amongst other wood tools. I look at the wood that’s in my shop and begin with a random chunk and chuck it up.
In this case a three inch thick piece of hard maple. Put the tool to it and away I go.
it was going to be a small bowl and I decided that wasn’t enough.
One thing led to another incorporating various woods laying around, using scrap etc. This is a lidded candy dish or a piece of eye candy. Made from multiple turned pieces.
The bottom is a mahogany tray with a Purple Heart flowered cup to hold the hard maple hollow with a black walnut split ring at the center.
Moving up the the top portion to the Cocobolo cap under a blood wood finial.
I added some texturing to jazz it up.
Finished with natural stain, semi gloss poly and a finishing wax.
The inside is treated with oil and beeswax. There you have it. An imagination gone wild. Fun stuff!
