basically a bowl within a bowl. Burned the edges with steel wool, made from laminated strips of exotic flooring that cost me next to nothing, reclaimed the glass from i don’t know where. Finished in a rush so it was just shellac and some wax but end product looks pretty good and feels pretty good. This was a fun project, and I was surprised how highly regarded it was by my mother. She thinks something of this quality is sell-able at craft shows, what do you guys think? I know i’m gettin better with each turning and i’ve only done a couple so far. Ended up going to my grandma, whom i don’t think i’ve ever seen light a candle but hey, it’s the thought that counts right? =)

comments and constructive criticism welcome!
