Here are some more turnings coming off of the lathe. I made a walnut vase (similar to a previous project) from an old walnut post taken from a Missouri barn. And included a few worm holes, too!

The lighter colored vases are made from a good ol’ North Carolina gumball tree that a relative had taken down. I was pleasantly surprised with the coloring that appeared on the sides.

All three are finished with a matter lacquer spray.

Enjoy and I welcome any comments!
