More wooden roses. I use poplar, walnut, cherry… really what ever scraps I have on hand.

I got the idea of wooden flowers when I found the how to make wooden flowers series by Ronbrush http://lumberjocks.com/Ronbrush/blog/series/7187

Also see my petal punch which makes it much faster! http://lumberjocks.com/projects/294330

To make the stand with leaves I used very soft popper. I turned a cone where I wanted the leaves on my lathe then using a dremal I sanded away the cone to shape them. I made a recess at the top that fits the rose bottom. Held securely in place with CA glue and finished it of with gloss spar varnish.

Wow, those are cool! Maybe even cool enough to get you forgiven for that pun. :)

Interesting to see that you ROSE to the occasion to make such amazing flowers from lumber. What WOOD ted mean by a pun?

These are a very nice craft project. They should make great gifts or sell ‘em.

Very interesting, It would take two life times to make all the things I see. I like flowers and have a number of flower beds. Great winter project when everything else is dead.
