    1st tea pot

    I've been looking at the tea pots that Mike and Cynthia Gibson make.Every time the wife sees them she says when you gonna make me one. She does have about 12 tea pots all ready, just don't have a wooded one. Well this is my attempt at getting out of the dog house. it's about 4 x 7 1/2, danish oil and multi coats lacquar. lacquar has been knocked down with steel wool. She says the handle is to small, so i guess i'll have to try again, just not right away.

    Steve, that is magnificant. I like it a lot. The handle looks ok to me but your wife is a better judge of that.

    That's awesome, Steve. I really like the burned details, and the form of the spout really caught my attention, too. (In a good way.) And the Ambassador's right...great photos, too.

    I really hate to argue with your wife. However, since I am a loonnggg ways away from you, I shall do so.

    I LIKE THE HANDLE. Aesthetically it is great. On a real pot it would be a knuckle burner. However, its main purpose is to live on a shelf. So I like the handle.

    Enjoy,
    Jim

    Actually, I really like the entire pot.
