This is was conceived in my twisted lil brain after making the Egg I posted before. I had a piece of Thornless locust sitting around and the walnut I have plenty of so decided to combine the two. As per my usual it is all turned and hand carved. I will tell you the locust was a bit of a buggar to work with. I included a few pictures of it in progress too. There is a piece of Hedge inside that spins within the bottle but it doesn’t show well in the pictures, its kind of hard to carve as well.

-- 25 years, 3 working lathes and I'm still figuring it out.

Very interesting and allot of work. What I found interesting is how you clamped that piece of wood to the chuck. Very well done.
