Default A box, a vase, and an acorn

It finally cooled off here in the desert so Iíve been having some fun! The box & vase are made from mesquite and were gifted to my coworker for her birthday. The box is the ďonion topĒ from Chris Stottís book ďTurned Boxes 50 DesignsĒ and I used the spear topped variation he shows because I liked it more than the original design. Itís maybe the 5th box Iíve made, but there will be plenty more. I love making these things. The vase is thicker at the the bottom than it should be because my hollowing tool wasnít long enough to reach all the way down. The acorn has a sapele nut and padauk cap that I textured with the Sorby mini spiralling/texturing tool. Both pieces darkened significantly from using BLO which I will leave out next time. Itís drilled for a screw eye and I plan on making a long string of them to use on my Christmas tree this year. Or more likely, Iíll make two so each of my daughters can have one. Sorry for the bad pics but I took them with my ipad. Thanks for looking.
