HANDMADE SPALTED BEECH FRUIT BOWL WITH COPPER INLAY
SPALTED BEECH WOOD FRUIT BOWL.
A wonderful Beech Wood bowl that had quite a number of cracks appear during the turning process, so not to be defeated, I used metal inlay, which is a process of mixing real powdered Copper into a resin and applying it to the desired areas that needed filling. The Copper inlay is left to cure and then sanded down and finally polished with a fine wire wool. I chose Copper, as this compliments the natural colour of the Beech Wood. The bowl has been finished with a sealer and protected with my beeswax and walnut oil polish, which is food safe so the bowl can be used for dry foods and fruit.
