Second Spiral Conch finished. This one made with European Baltic Birch Plywood. Size is 9 inches long by 5 inches in diameter. Lacquer finish applied. Fun to come up with different woods to see what the effects will be. Maybe some Spalted Maple????

Do you realize that you buy one of those at a beach gift shop for 10 $. :)
Nice work I feel like it should have something drastically different make it unique.
Good Luck

Lee, the shells are not made using a lathe, but are cut on a Scroll Saw. Found this hard to believe, but here’s a link to the fella that put all this together (Steve Garrison). Watch his short video and you’ll get the gist of this.
