    Oak 1/2 natural twig pots

    These are made from some oak I had put on the firewood pile, but found again this week. They are about 9" high with a 1/2 in hole. I filled a crack on the right one with coffe grounds and CA. Finsih is watco oil so far.

    Darren, I filled them about half way through turning...I thought I could turn the cracks out, but they were deeper than I thought. Don't worry, I had a faceshield on just in case it exploded.

    I'm sure it gave off a nice aroma.

    Jeff those are beauties. You are right that sometimes if you find you can't turn the cracks out just fill them while turning.
