Uniquely beautiful Keith.
Does the seed holes make it more difficult to turn?

Peter….Its the velvety red fluff that’s just under the surface that makes it a little difficult to turn once you get past that the seed pockets aren’t so bad. On this one I glued a capping piece top and bottom to give you more solid ends.

I was at a show where Keim lumber was at, and saw the pods. I went away shaking my head saying WT heck????

I see I see said the blind guy. They should have had a turned specimen there. Every guy with a lathe would have been buying.

Nice job, it’s definitely a conversation starter. Thanks for posting.

Very nice vase. The pods always make turnings stand out with their attracting features.

That is beautiful Keith.
Love those pods.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.
