Just goofing around with the lathe.
Not sure what they would be used for ;-)~
Maybe an incense burner.
Walnut, canary, paduke, bloodwood, and yellow heart was used.
Any comments are welcome.

Those are nice. Unique no two alike.
I’m sure they would work great for burning dried flowers.

These are great! Awesome job!!!

Just what I needed to see posted here on LJs.

I just setup my “new to me” JET 1442 VSK lathe and was looking for a project/present for my sister and BIL. I was thinking along these very lines.
She & her husband WILL know how to put them to good use!!!

Thanks for sharing…..

Can you post or outline the steps you used to turn one of these? Do you turn or shape the bowl and then turn the stem? They look very nice indeed!

Jr- I drill the stem then drill for the bowl. After that I use the lathe to turn the rest.
Some carving is required around the bowl but its minimal.
Thanks for all the kind comments and thoughts for use. :-)
