    Vase Series

    The LOML came up with more drawings so I guess it is back to work. These are all from Elm as I had several pieces laying around that were 2 or 3 yrs old. She wanted a couple with no scallops and just plain wood. One with a lid and the other without. The other two are scalloped on with the plain wood and she wanted a red rim. Not sure about that but hey if she wants it who am I to argue especially when she told me I could order some Easy Wood Tools. The other is another red one this time with a lid. I sanded it back some to be able to see the grain. Probably could have sanded a little more but still learning this dyeing thing. Anyway all finished with rattle can lacquer. They are 6" tall and about 5" across. So I guess now we will continue the series but I told her they would have finials. She said ok.

    Nicely done Bernie!
    All of us "Elm's" are great looking.

    Turning beautiful pieces, making your wife happy and acquiring new tools is just hard to beat.

    Thanks everyone. I figure maybe one day I can get her out there and turn something. Anyway these are fun to make and now can start to experiment some with them.

    Les now that is funny.

    I hope so Ken. She is getting more interested in the design than turning but that is ok by me. Oh and I told her it would be a little easier and make a smoother finish if I had a couple of tools. So she let me order a Ci0, Ci1 and a Ci5. Woohoo.
