This collection of small turned forms is something I do between box making sessions. The discipline of turning is entirely different from box making and I find it a relaxing diversion.
The wine goblet is unfinished and made of Australian Rosewood. (I use this as a form from which I make others.)
The small jug was made a few years back, and I believe it is American Walnut. The handle is bentwood cane.
The lidded box is Wild Cherry. This is a beautiful wood, very dense and heavy, with colors ranging from gray yellow and orange to cherry red.
The bud vase is also Australian Rosewood, finished with shellac. It will have a glass vile inserted to enable it to hold water.
