It's always fun to get a special request from a customer. Sometimes you like the idea, and other times you just have to turn it even if it isn't your tastes.
This time I though the idea was pretty cool! She wanted 4 of my goblet shaped stoppers that would double as tapered candle holders.
Here's one of them. California walnut (surprise!) with a CA finish.
If anything the request simplified the turning. Normally I use a round nose scraper on the end to get a smooth bowl shape. On these, I just just drilled out a 3/4 inch hole about 1/2 deep.
California Walnut, Lignum Vitate, Claro Walnut, Redheart
