The wood is Padauk and it is my first time doing these. I love them they are sooo easy to make. The cone looking one is actually all red. The middle one is waiting for it’s base.

Sweet, Rick!
How about next time turning some from basswood and adding a chip carved design.
I think we might be on to something here!

Great Job, Rick! Love the colors!

Next time you need the metal stoppers, try this lady- http://www.torne-lignum.com/. She is great to work with and her prices are very reasonable. Check her site- she has other turning products as well.
