A few small turnings.

Just a couple of small projects that I have turned recently. The first is a mushroom shaped picture frame and the second is a potpourri bowl for my wife.

Ken,
Looks good. What kind of wood is that? I have a few of the pot pouri tops like that. I have to make some more. They make nice gifts.

I know that it doesn't look like it Mike, but they are both oak. When I applied the tung oil sealer, the oak really changed colour. I kinda like it.
They were fun to make and I got just a little more practice.

Very nice Ken, and I have to agree with you that it doesn't look like oak, not just from the color but grain as well.

Ken, very nice. The idea for your picture frame is neat. Looks like your turning is coming along nicely.
