I have been having a lot of fun with these turnings/carvings lately. The first vase is maple and bloodwood, the other two are maple, oak, walnut and cherry. They are finished with wipe on poly. I think next is to try it with a segmented turning. Should be fun, if it doesn’t explode in my face… because that would make it awesome.

I can’t imagine how those are made. They are fascinating! Are there any videos available?

I can see why you are stuck on these vessels, they are whimsical as well as beautiful.

That is unique to say the least and very beautiful!

How about an explanation of how you did these?

So cool, I love it, I’ll love it more when I figure out how it’s done. That’s going to keep me up for awhile working this out in my brain.

Some great looking melted pots, they are awesome. Really like the mmix and choices of woods used in them and you can stay stuck on them for as long as you like, I all ways enjoy looking at them…keep them coming.
