Drinking Fountain Bowl and Cover

We received the original casting of the drinking fountain to work from, and the broken parts of the bowl and cover. After laying up the wood the cover was turned on the lathe and the grooves marked out and carved all around the pattern. The top part was then turned and carved.

To make the bowl the wood was built up in a half bowl shape then carved by hand to fit the main post of the fountain. This meant going back and forth between the original and the casting checking regularly that the shapes were fitting together snugly.
