  1. Wood Flower Vases

    Another project built on a whim. These are basically tubes with legs. The woods are walnut and lacewood. My intent was to dress up a standard drinking glass being used to hold flowers. Since the glass (hopefully) keeps the water from escaping, I figured finding a way to enclose the glass and...

  3. Wooden Desk Flower

  8. Flower Box

    This was just a small box I saw in a restaurant one morning that I decided to make. The box was pretty simple; the only new part to me was turning that handle on my lathe. I wanted the handle to spin so I just made the middle part thicker than the ends that fit through the holes on the side of...

  15. Flower Boxes

    These were made from a cedar beam that I got from somebody who was going to throw it away. I didn't put any finish on them yet, but I'm thinking about applying some Thompson's water seal to help make them last a long time. Any other ideas to use for a finish?
