I spun these up last week, the two pale bottles pics, 1, 2, & 3, are River gum branches that I picked up ages ago. They are finished with raw linseed oil 2 coats.
Pics 4 & 5 are an unknown Acacia and as yet is not oiled/polished. The reason I’m hanging off doing that is because the wood is oxidising and going darker by the day. I want to see how dark it goes,
The bottles are drilled approx. 3/4 of their depth to take a bud or something.
I hope you like then and Thanks for looking.
C & C Welcome.

Bob.

I like them Bob, a lot of character with the odd shapes, the Acacia should come up well when darkened. Damn good use of branches mate.

I like the shape Bob, different than the normal. Pic 5, I love it just the way it is.

Bob,

I think you should block up any holes fill it with some nice WA Port and then invite me over to get a better look at them!!

I will bring some Bundy Rum for the others!!

Sounds like a plan Rob.
It does look a bit “Porty” hey.

Some how I missed these, very nice wood. A sood turner can use the whole tree, no waste, In allot of cases the ugly gnarly parts become the most beautiful. So much wood is wasted just to make boards. Nice projects.
