These are three pieces I turned from another cedar branch. The first one is a small cup. The next one is a cone vase and then the baseball vase. The last one got a lid from the remaining stock.They are finished with Watco semi gloss lacquer.

Those are sure some pretty branches you got hold of. You inspire me that I really need to take a time out from all the other distractions and spend some days turning to spend a few days turning.

Hi Jim,
It’s amazing, the glow of this wood, and how you manage to get it out of the wood.

Nice work. I really like the way the grain comes out when it is turned.
