Here are my two last wooden vases and on the right a piece for a future project ( a ring holder probably or ........ my mind is in reflexion ….. Wait and see ….....)

A lot of pleasure to make this three pieces with my lathe

I like this technique inside out turning

I have some ideas for another project but ….......... Wait and see …..........

Comments welcome

Thanks for looking

When I first saw the small picture I was thinking someone has made a big size of an old fashion clothes hanger. What a surprised to find out I was wrong. That’s some nice work and its something I know nothing about. I am not that good at the standard turning..

When I first saw these I guessed that you turned them as cylinders and then cut out the pattern on the bandsaw. I’m glad you told us how you did it. Inside out turning makes a lot more sense.

Nice job.

This is super cool. I want to try this now! How on earth do you stabilise it after you’ve turned it inside out?

These are really nice and are something that is a little different. I like them.

I also thought they were clothes pins. About 1/2” diameter. A few questions: What are the dimensions? What kind of wood?
