Mother’s Day Presents for Church. We are making about 35 of these flower vases made out of Sapele Mahogany. When done they will be 7 Inches tall. I would love to have these done but the winter weather has now allowed me to really get into the shop. So, we are rushing to get them done.
I purchased a Colt Maxi Cut forstner bit to make the hole for the tube a bit easier. Well, it cuts like butter! But…. a ‘normal extension’ does not work with this bit, you have to purchase their extender. It won’t get here till Saturday, so we are trying to get as much done before then. Shaping and drilling the hole as far as we can. Can’t cut off until drilling can be completed.
That’s my son, Josh (15yr) on the lathe helping out.
