This is a mesquite spur vase I turned while in Az last year. It was the first vase I made by turning a spiggot on both ends ,cutting it in two pieces and hollowing out the inside first. Then I glued it together and turned the shape and bored in the top hole.

Great turning….and a very nice finish….I have not yet tried that method….but it looks like alot of fun….I will have to look more into it…thank you for the inspiration.

Wow…turning and traveling….interesting combination….I know a few folks that do the woodcarving motor home touring – they are in a club with like minded folks….but yours sounds much more to my taste (I’ve just begun to dabble in carving)....I just don’t think I could lug my 1000+ lb powermatic lathe with me though…LOL..but what a great way to meet new folks and to try out some interesting woods….that mesquite is exquisite too….It has been a bit tempermental (sp?) in my turnings…..but the outcome is wonderful…
