  1. Koa Twist

    Koa Twist

    This small, 4-inch-diameter twisted bowl was turned from Koa (or Koa-like) wood. An off-center approach was used to turn the upper half. The interior of the bowl was antiqued with bronze metallized paint and patinas to give it a metal-like look. Finish is Watco oil.
  2. Metallized Twisted Peppermill

    Metallized Twisted Peppermill

    This 9-inch tall peppermill was turned off-center from maple and had some worm holes. Rather than try to minimize them, I decided to highlight them with metallized paint and patina enhancements. Finish is Watco oil buffed on the Beall system.
