In this video, I started out to make an egg shaped mold or pattern for cast glass. Several things went wrong but were not critical until I got a nasty catch when finishing the top of the egg. At that point, the egg’s base cracked off its remaining tenon leaving a big hole in the bottom.
What was I to do?
Following the example of great woodturners before me, I adapted the design. It not became the remnants of a hatched egg. I don’t know where the baby bird it!
This egg is about 5 inches long and 3 inches in diameter. It is dyed black and finished with friction polish.
