    Those are sharp looking wine stopper Maria...next time you pour epoxy try turning it as soon as it sets up, if it's still warm...okay, just so it's set. Try it

    Thanks Lawrence. Hmm, I'm assuming 'just set' epoxy will react even worse than the not fully cured epoxy I've tried turning that basically melted under the heat of turning/sanding into a bit of a blob

    Okay then
    I poured two inlays on the base of the Christmas Ornament Trees and it took forever to setup and I thought why wait till its hard?
    Maybe a carving density would work. I do remember after turning it being like someone tee-peed me and the lathe with plumbers Teflon Tape.

Feeling inspired to try some real spheres!

    I made a few bottle stoppers too. I gave a couple to my daughter-in-law and at diner with them I opened a silverware drawer and one of the stoppers was rolling around (like a sphere) in the drawer. so...I thought they needed a place.
