Matt, (napaman) told me to check our back hall closet.

He was right, I found this one.LOL

This happens to be another project from the lightning tree.

I’d like to tell people that you can make a lot of nice things using Pine.

For instance you never know what a piece of wood will look like once you change its shape on a Lathe.

This time the grain kind of looks like a twisted rope.

It’s 5” wide X 3” high.

Finished with beeswax. I’ve noticed that a beeswax finish darkens over the years,

especially from the sunlight.

The glass liner is made from a bottle.

I bought a bottle cutter set at a garage sale, & once in awhile I play around with it.

And now where is this being showcased?

A beautiful bowl and the idea of using the bottle.
