I turned these mushrooms from some short pieces of mesquite and philodendron. They are finished with EEE and Shellawax.

Hi Leanne, I wish they were the rage here! I had a table full of them and did not sell a one. Maybe I should ship them to you to sell in Australia!!
I will be cutting some limbs off pecan trees in an orchard next week. I plan to make a big mushroom for a pencil holder for Penny who owns the orchard. I’ll have another to post then.

Pete, I remember those forms for darning socks. I have not seen one in 40 years. Mushrooms will do that!!....
Cheers…......Jim

The one on the left has a nice face in the stem and the left one has a alien look to it .
