  1. "Lil Monster" - Bowl from 5" Wisteria Vine

    I have access to a farm that has produced some very interesting materials for turning. One of them was a Wisteria Vine that was 5" in diameter. I hated to cut it down, but it was causing damage to just about everything surrounding it. I couldn't wait to explore and turned it the day after it...
  2. Natural Snake

    I found this piece of wood, naturally curved/ twisted/ scared, I stripped off the bark, next step is to sand and poly. I I told my Nephew that I was going to carve the wood to look like a Snake, he said "Uncle Danny it already looks like a Snake"

I put the grandparents names on the side of the vine at the Y. The leafs are in order of age. They have a reunion every year at a camp...

    The design I cooked up for my open "modern looking" bathroom vanity includes a semi circular (think 1/4 of a drum shape) bent piece of thin MDF that will be bent around some permanent ribs (below the sink bowl - to hide the drain and bobstops etc.). The outer surface of that will have maple...

    Ok so I have this Vine that is very old I cut down prob 6 years ago. I believe I tested it with s spray sealer initially but I'm wanting to make a custom table with it. My question is, what is best approach? I like the bark but after reading other thread assume this will only be problematic? IDK...
