Lovely Bowls from Barbados Furniture Maker


Happy New Year to you all and thanks for reading my Blog over the past couple of years.
To kick the New Year off here are some very nice bowls from furniture maker Cy Hutchinson from Barbados. He trained at Rycotewood from 1994 - 1996, it's amazing how many of todays makers came through that college, even as far away as the West Indies. You can see his webiste for more http://www.barbadoswoodworker.com/index.cfm


He enjoys mixing metal with wood and combines them to great effect.


The first six pictures are all Barbados mahogany, very closely related to Cuban Mahogany. It has a wonderful rich golden colour.



This last vase is from genuine lignum vitae which has all but gone now and certainly can't be exported. The wood I use for my planes is Palo Santo which is from the same genus and has the same dense oily properties as the real stuff.
