    Attempted Tea Light

    I had seen this little chunk tossed away in a pile and thought I'd give a tea light a shot. I think next time I have something this eroded I'll boost it with thick CA.





    Have a Nice Day!

    Talking Love those crusty little chunks!

    Jon, My shop is full of these little chunks that I know I will eventually get a treasure turned out of! I love the ones with some bark and figure and maybe a little bark or spalt in them! I make a lot of miniatures and most of the little pieces find a home sooner or later. The woodstove needs feeding this time of year also!

    Looks good to me!

    another beauty Jon!

    I have some cherry burl that is more fragile than what I see in yor very nice pix. I had to CA it to get it solid enough to turn. Maybe a good idea on those rough spots on that very nice piece. May keep them from breaking out. Thanks for sharing.

    Nice tea lamp Jon! Was there a little vibration with those loose things swinging?

    Looks good, and the "eroded" parts giving it a great texture. I have seen some people's work where they carve, burn and sandblast the piece to get texture, and you get it for no extra work!
