Description of work

This cricket trophy was turned for the Army Training Centre at Pirbright in Surrey. The base is turned from oak, with just a small amount of burr figuring in one area. The wickets and bails are turned from ash - as full size wickets are. The ball is paduak, an African hardwood, chosen for its reddish orange colouring. It is turned with a seam and stitching featuring.
Four engraving plaques have been added - the details for which rest with the army.

The army emblem was pyrographed onto a small oak shield, its background painted red. The cross swords which are part of the army emblem were turned in oak, flattened on their rear slightly, and glued into position behind the shield.

Four engraving panels were added to the base, at the Army's request, to be engraved later. If they look a little dull in the photograph, it is because they still have a protective plastic film on them.
The whole trophy was finished with three coats of wax - Tripoli to start with, then white diamond, and finally carnauba wax, to give a hard wearing, high sheen finish.

A gallery of all versions of this trophy is available.
