This is from an unknown piece of wood. It measures 3 1/2” to the top of the apple not including the leaf and is 3 ” at its widest.
Turned using a roughing gauge for bulk removal then spindle gauge and skew for the outside, the inside i used a spindle gauge to for a hole to the required depth then a crown revolution tool for the hollowing. Sanded down to 320grit inside and out.
The leaf and stalk are from a piece of mahogany the stalk was cut using a carving knife which does not leave it perfectly round and the leaf was cut on the scrollsaw and then finished with the carving knife to add the veins. Added a piece of clove in the bottom.
Finished with Danish oil when dry given a quick buff with the chestnut buffing system.
