Woodturned daffodil

Woodturned daffodil

Maker: Allan Cusworth

Location: Langley, British Columbia

These daffodils were turned on my woodturning lathe. They made of Western Big Leaf Maple, finished with Acrylic paint and spray lacquer. They mounted on a piece of 1/4" dowel that was coloured with a green bingo dauber and sealed with nitro-cellulose sealer to stop the water based colour from rubbing off. The angle of the stems were made by cutting a 50 degree angle close to one end and re-gluing with epoxy it at an angle. The pistols were added when gluing the flowers on to the stems.
