Two more melting pots, one done in cherry and maple, the other in soft curly maple and walnut. The cherry vase is finished with wipe on poly, and the maple is finished with lacquer to minimize the ambering effect of the finish. Both stand about 10 inches tall, and are 8 inches wide.

I will do a blog on these, but not till after Christmas…. Way too busy having fun in the shop until then…

I can’t wait for the weblogs on how you build these. Cool vases, too. That cherry is slick.
