I have looked at other spiral shells but was never able to work out how they were made. With the New Year and a fair bit of fire wood created I have finally got a couple I can show off. Much like a bowl from a board method but cutting the board into wedges before attacking with the scroll saw. Pic 5 and 6 are the shells after sanding and before the paint attack. These are a start and hopefully with a bit more experimenting with the angles the next one I post will be bigger and complete with stand. The 2 are 5” tall and 6” long..
