Had an order for a po-pouri vessel, needed to be larger than the normal and something different. Had already played around with the cone shape and had put it aside in the MAYBE do something with it one day. Pulled it out of the box tidied up the carving and piercing, made a lid from the same wood (shipping pallet recycled), a base and finial of red gum. Painted the leaves to get the Autumn look and there it was. Customer happy and I might do a couple more. Comments welcome.
