Mostly softwood tops. Wild shapes are possible with softwood because it’s so light.
One is Maple and Bloodwood and the instructions are in Michael Cullen’s book.
Two are Aromatic Cedar and have such a great smell unfinished.
I like them shinny so finished with Quick 15 (super fast drying varnish from Zinsser).

Use a parting tool to make the multiwing tops.
Have fun and amaze your family.
Make enough to give away.

Those are great. Nice wood choice and shapes. I like the finish also.

Have your say...
