Here’s a textured Cherry vessel, the first of three, that we turned recently. It is 7 inches tall and approximately 5 1/2 inches in diameter at its widest point.
It has been textured with a ‘swirl’ burn and also colored a bit with stain. Then it was finished with tung oil and buffed to a warm glow.
Here are a couple of more photos:

Very nice. How did you do the swirl pattern?
Love the branding. Graeme Priddle showed us his approach at the symposium. I like what it does to your piece. Looks like you have a handle on it for sure. Pretty sure I’m going to add that to my box if tricks.
Dan, it’s done with pyrography using a brand that was made into a swirl.
Ed, yep, it opens up a lot of texturing opportunities. Try it, you`ll like it.
All the branding that I have been doing lately has been done with a unit I`m calling the `Priddle Vaporizer 1000`, based on Graeme Priddle`s design. I`ll have a post regarding coming up soon.
