This is for the the green thumb in the family. For succulents and other such plants that don’t need a lot of water.

I made some extra rings when I made this, so this didn’t take much time to put together.

For the insulator collectors among us, it’s an Armstrong DP1. Flea market find from the good old days.

Wood jaws are the way to go when doing something like this. I think that I can hold most anything in wood jaws.

3 rings of 32 segments each, glued assembled on the lathe.

I used hot glue to attach the insulator. It set up quickly. I put it in the microwave to heat up so that I could set it level.

4 & 3/4” at base x 4 & 1/2” tall. Mohawk Dead Flat lacquer

Another turning that is thinking out side the box.
