Wafer-thin turned wood that is only 1-2 mm thick is particularly suited to lighting items of all types due to its translucent properties. The light that shines through in warm colours combines with the outline of the wood grain, colourations or knots to create a very refined item. The thin wood can easily be shaped due to its low strength and prevents cracks appearing. Each participant turns two green wood items using a spindle or faceplate technique.
