I like trying different things.Sometimes they don't turn out as spectacular as the vision in my mind,such as this one.Not to crazy about it.It is made with Cedar,with Lilac insert surrounded by Taracota Milliput.

Hey Rob, thanks for posting.
I appreciate it when members post things that "don't turn out as spectacular as the vision in my mind" as you said.
While this type of embellishment isn't my cup of tea, I'm sure others will have questions, comments and critiques.

I like it.  It looks like one of those things that might be more difficult than it appears.

I don't mind posting what I have made.If it gives someone some ideas,or spurs them off the couch to the shop,or gets the creative juices flowing in someone,or someone else enjoys seeing it,it is worth it good bad or ugly it's all good.Wish more people would share what they have made.

Rob --  a good learning experience.

Have seen some pretty eye catching flat work using branches cut on a bias (ovals).  some times as ovals, and sometimes in geometric shapes.

Lilac can have spectacular color.  Keep working on variarions.  Great promise!

I'm completely new to woodturning. I made my own lathe, which I'll be using until I save up for a real one.

Honestly I love it. It's really fun looking and if I saw it in a store I would definitely buy it.
