Title IAP Collection Pen #16
Description Australian Grass Tree Roller Ball by Bob Wemm
Date Added to Collection October 30, 2014
Maker Bob Wemm
Materials Grass Tree (Xanthorrhoea preisii). The inner fibrous trunk and root ball.
Components Roman Harvest with Rhodium plating, Titanium accents
Tools / Machinery Used Nova 1624-44 lathe. 31/64 & 33/64 drill bits, Carbide Chisel, Buffing system
Process The blanks were drilled and thin CA poured down the holes.These were then cleaned out and tubes glued in with thick CA. Turned to almost size and then another coat of thin CA applied. Turned to final size and another coat of CA, 4 coats of medium CA, accelerator after each coat. Sanded to 2400 and then another 4 coats of medium CA applied. Sanded to 2400, buffed with Tripoli and White Diamond.
Maker's Comments This material proved to be very difficult to finish, and being fibrous created even more problems. The plant has a resinous outer “Trunk” and this resin is obviously in the inner part as well, which was discovered while attempting to stabilize the material.
