I went to the Woodworking Show in Tampa, Fl last week and picked up a couple blank turning pieces and this is one of them. I have not turned Spalted Red Elm before and found it a delight to turn although the odor it gives off smells like a horse stall! I learned how to make the unique finial a year ago when I took a 2 day course in making lidded vessels. It looks hard to do but is very easy and took me about an hour including sanding. The vessel is just under 3” high but with the finial it is 7 1/4” x 6” dia. This is my first lidded vessel believe it or not!
It is finished with Odie’s oil products.
As always, comments and critiques welcomed and appreciated!
Thanks for looking!
