    Cauldron!!!

    Actually two cauldron! Although one is more of a squashed amphora so maybe one cauldron, one amphora...

    Cauldron: 13.5" x 6.5" with 1/4" thick wall increasing to 3/8" on the bottom for some added stability.

    Wow! Very nice. I'm jealous of the moss growing on your retaining wall as well.

    Thanks all.

    Ted: I've been queuing them up - the failures tend to hide their heads in the shop

    Rob: well I probably spent about 2-3 hours per rough turning and another 2-3 finish turning plus say an hour of finish sanding and finishing on each piece. From start to end they took just about 6 months with the drying time in the middle (some time spent shuffling them in and out of bags there as well). That's not counting shavings shoveling time - from the pickup truck load of blanks I ended up with 7-8 wheelbarrow loads of shavings

    Brent: you'd like the moss less if you saw how good it is at migrating to the roof I really need to put in some zinc strips! Looks nice on the wall though.
