This weeks project is a Cherry log I was given towards the end of last year, the log was turned wet, after day 1 I had not completed the rough turning so it was wrapped in cling film to hold the moisture content in, this helps limit the cracking you may get if its left to dry out unevenly, although Cherry is well known for cracking so I expected some as it dried.
The rough turned vase was then placed in the kiln to dry for about 4 weeks before being finished. The inlay is copper wire, can’t remember the gauge off the top of my head.
