Since I haven't moved the whole shop over yet (next weekend ), I've made time to piddle with my stash of mesquite cutoffs. Take it easy on me... I'm self taught, and had a poor teacher.
Comments on form and what not are welcome. Not necessary to comment on my photography skills, or my use of the cooktop as the setting.
I seem to have a couple basic shapes that I'm 'comfortable' with, and I struggle if I try to stray too far.
Little bowl, 5-1/4 by 1-1/2 deep.
Bigger, 7 x 2-1/2 deep. Probably the prettiest chunk of mesquite I've ever turned... there's a lot going on there that my amateur pictures don't show well.
Next two are 7-1/4 by 1-1/2... same basic shape, but one has beading detail at the top, the other at the bottom.
