    A trio of eggs

    During my quest to be a better turner I found that one of the most difficult thing to turn are eggs. Seeing that it "tis the season" and the fact that I love a challenge led me to try a few. They were not easy and they are not perfect but I turned:
    A solid
    A hollow
    And a kaleidoscope.

    Thanks for looking

    Wonderful job Dewey. So did you use the same technique as the link in Brent's thread?

    Very nice. IME fruit and eggs are really difficult simply because everyone has a preconceived idea what they should look like.

    Now the next step Dewey

    Those are gorgeus ones, Dewey.
    I bet that your LOYL doesn't want to use those to sew socks
