This was a goofing around project to use up some scrap from a crotch I turned into a bowl. It was big enough for something and it turned out to be a lighted flying saucer. I had no plan for what it would be and the wood said it wanted to be a flying saucer so that is what I made it. I had it made into a saucer shaped hollow vessel and then I got this idea for a top and turned that out of some more of the scrap, drilled 8 holes in it in the lathe and added an LED light. It is really eerie in the dark because I had a piece chip out near the bottom on the back and it is filled with epoxy and wood chips. Light goes through it in the dark!!
It is made from green chestnut and finished with EEE and Shellawax.
