    Rose Vase

    Well the LOML gave me another drawing on Tuesday night while we were watching TV. She thought it might look pretty nice. So I head to the shop the next morning to fiddle around and see what I could come up with. She wanted this one with no lid and after seeing it done now wants one dyed blue with a lid. So guess I will get to it this afternoon. Anyway it came out pretty nice with the scallops on the edge. It is 5 1/2" tall and 4 1/2" across. It is dyed with red transtint and lacquer finish.

    That's real nice, Bernie. Like Bill, I'm curious how you cut the scallops.

    Thanks everyone. Actually these were alot of fun to make.

    On the scallops I used the indexing on the lathe which has 24 detents. I marked the lip with 24 marks. I found a lid that would span 4 marks about 1/4 of the way. Didn't want to go half way on the lid because they would be to deep IMHO. I drew the 1/4 circle. I then took it to my new oscillating spindle sander. Menards just opened a store down the road. They had it for half price at $84.50 so couldn't pass it up. Anyway I use the 1" spindle and sand away to form the scallops. I had it upside down on the table feeding it in.
