#1 Spalted maple from the waste wood bin at Gilmer’s in Portland.
I love how the finish and the spalting have made it look similar to an old globe. The accent ring is Bubinga. About 2 1/2”

#2 Redwood with an Ebony finial.
I love shopping at Gilmers! the odds and ends bins are great for turning small objects.
4” x 4” w/1” finial.

#3 Maple with Ziricote finial
2 3/4” x 3” with 1 1/4” finial
I know the foot of this one needs a little more definition. I have to keep reminding myself that a little more isn’t a bad thing.

-- to turn or not to turn, is that really a question?

Nice boxes, your right about the spalting it really adds to the look. Great save from the waste bin.

The wood grain just pops out beautifully.

Have your say...
