so here is one I just completed today. This spalted walnut? was almost too rotten. The handle and spout is ash and something left over from flooring hardwood. Just another of those things that is fun to make. After turning the body on the lathe the hard part begins. Trying to get the rest of the pieces all portioned accordingly. “The biggest problem I run in to is getting the right amount of epoxy and not having any extra oozing out all over the place. Rubber bands are the clamps of choice on this job.

I’ve never seen a tea pot like that, very exacting details.

Excellent work, the fluting is awesome. Are they hollow? The rest of your work is also real cool.
