Its been a while since I have been able to get back to carving these vessels ,I’ve forgotten how hard they are.
I start the process with a chainsaw then go to various carving grinders and a lot of sanding.The wood is cherry and it stands about 20” tall. We called this one “Margarita Ville” since it looks like a margarita glass. That or I’m thursty.

Thanks for looking!

Scott, as always you create some unique pieces. This one is simply gorgeous and the turquois inlay adds to the visual interest of the piece. I admire the skill and artistry that it took to produce a work like this.

Thanks for the post.

WOW! This is really beautiful. Thanks for including a few remarks on how you go about making this because that was my first thought. How on earth did some one make that? Thanks for posting.

Very unique. Impresive technique. Looks like a floppy ice cream cone. How are you anchoring it to stand up?
