Dave,the park electrician, asked me if I could make a dinner bell for his sister. She collects them.
I chose a pecan log and made the bell and handle all out of the same piece. I centered it a little off center with the pith of the log and the dark color of the pith came out in the handle in the second shot. The first shot shows the open knot I left in the front of it.
It is 3” in diameter and about 6” tall.
It has an acacia clapper inside.
It is finished with Danish oil and clear lacquer.
