In this video I turn a Bowl from Goncalo Alves hardwood and inlay it with bronze and acrylic.
I am using West Systems GFlex epoxy resin ( slow setting ) with powdered bronze.
The blank, sanding sealer and burnishing cream were purchased from John Davis Woodturning
The epoxy resin was from Axminster tools
The bronze powder and acrylic were purchased from Ebay

  1. Dude! It looks like piece of bronze sheet. It is quite perfect. If you do this again try to prime the holes with a little clear resin in a syringe. So it will have something to help the rod and bronze resin to slide across.

  2. very beautiful but if you can put lamps inside the bowl and the light comes out through holes

  3. Using this bronze-epoxy putty as a glue for acrylic rods wasn't a good idea.
    You could put inside holes resin mixed with wood dust or brown pigment and put bronze putty only on the surface.
