    A group of weed pots...

    Did three more 'sumpins' in my spare time.

    The squatty one is about 4" tall by 3" across. Not sure of the wood type.

    The middle one is about 8" tall by 3" across. Not sure of the wood type.

    The one on the right is 9.5" tall by 3" across. Pine.

    The nice thing about doing stuff like this is that it can always go back on the firewood stack if it blows up!

    I don't know what you're talking about....

    Even better is if you don't tell anyone what you were doing, no one will ever know it happened.

    The third one remind anyone else of the old coca cola bottles??

    Nice weed pots. For no more work than they are, they create a stir whenever I make some. Dried flower arrangements just look better in them than a glass container.

    Thanks, Jonathan.

    I thought the same thing as I worked the third one in the photo to see what it wanted to be. I set it up on my lathe kinda off-center so I could save the knot on the left. I've found what works for me is to use the slowest speed, make a first pass to see what starts to develop, then stop every time I cut a little to see what's developing.
