I set this conglomeration of images quite awhile ago for L J’s, & I guess I forgot about it. I discovered the files today.

Posting them this way is much easier than individual projects, & won’t overload L J’s with projects. LOL

There is a variety of wood here.

They run in sizes between 3, & 4 inches tall.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
For these small pieces I use a small screw center face plate. I turn the item to shape between centers first, then I then I back off the tail stock, & hollow it. A bowl gouge works just as good as a drill bit. With the gouge, you can shape the lip of the vases interior first.

Barb gets the credit for the flowers!!

Sweet. The flowers add a really nice touch.
(I think it is more of a gaggle than a conglomeration.)

Dick the vases are beautiful. I’m guessing that you use a drill to hollow out the inside, then turn the outside shape to suit? If that is not the way you are doing it – I think I will try a few that way. Using dried flowers would eliminate the need to put water in the vessel, so the smaller hole should work.

I also have to crank up my old lathe again. I have so many things I like to do, I don’t know which way to ”turn”. ;)
