More bottles

I made a couple of bottles as gifts this past christmas. As it turned out folks seem to like them so I've been asked to make several more. Who would have thought these would sell like they do. I thought I'd throw a couple of pictures up while I was at it.

First the glue up

Mounted to the Lathe




The turn




The finished product.




I don't put any finish on them. Most folks want to be able to smell the cedar.

Okay, now that's just cool. I'm gonna have to try this one of these days. Great work.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"

It may be called that, I call it Aromatic Cedar. Sorry I don't know, but thanks for the nice comment.

The bottles are just for looks, I guess you could cut off some silk flowers and stick them in the top.

The boards will hold a full bottle of your favorite wine or beer about any bottle with a long neck. My wife has a Virgin Olive Oil bottle sitting in one.

Thanks for looking.
