I made this turning for my mother as a mother’s day gift from some walnut and cherry wood,that came from logs that I milled myself. This is a departure from what I usually make, which is some sort of box, and this is my first turning, other than the occasional pen. Since I only have a small “bench top” pen makers lathe, this is what I came up with. It’s only 5’’ in diameter x 8’’ tall. I didn’t know what to call it, it’s not a bowl or a vase, so my mom said, ” it’s an objet d’ art” , so I guess that’s what I’ll call it.
