From Crepe Myrtle branch to some sort of small five petal flower & vase. IDK? ~ a little stain in the center, polyurethane, & piece of copper wire. Lots of sanding.

As you can see I needed something to do last weekend.

Thanks for looking!

Nice work! After profiling the petals and chucking back up, is there any aditional turning to the petals themselves or just sanding?

Thanks for the comments guys.
woodcox; I just chucked it back up to make it easier to sand on, rotate from petal to petal, while lathe is off.
Once it was all sanded then trimmed down the backside & parted it off.
Thanks again for looking!
