Hi All,

I wanted to share these with the community and get your feedback. Hope you like em!

The globes are Zebra Wood, Cherry, Eucalyptus Burl, & Oak. The Ffinials are made of Holly and Bocote. The dark finial with the zebra wood is holly, I used an home brew ebonizing solution to color it.

Really great designs, especially the shape of the finials. Are you using smaller turning tools to get such fine details on those tiny bits of wood? Also, do you turn the finial last to keep it from breaking, or are there other ways to secure it? The spiral hangers look neat, but I wonder about how practical they will be for tree hanging.

Great Work, Love number 1 and 2 especially. What I love about them is the proportions of the finials to the bulb. Thanks for sharing.
