Turned from spalted Pecan
My inspiration for these bells was from one that my Dad had turned for his 7 children. I always cherished mine and know that he would be pleased that I keep and displayed it proudly. I wanted to do the same for my kids so I designed my own and turned 6 of them. One was given to a charity to auction off for cancer research. The others were given as Christmas gifts. Those that turn know the difficulty of turning across the end grain and making the section thin and delicate but not weak.
