Big B, these turnings are absolutely beautiful, wonderful work. Can you tell us how you made the top (handle) for the vessel?

Thanks for posting these B, a joy to view!

For the top/finial I wish I could tell you there was a method to the madness. I was looking for something really different and I started by cutting the outlined shape on my bandsaw. From there I literally spent ten hours carving and sanding until I ended up with what you see. I can't say that it ended up like I had thought it out in my head but it was definitely different or unique. It was a lot of work and took about ten hours for the top/finial alone.  Thanks, Big B

It really worked well, and well worth the time and effort. Often times as you know, what we end up with is better than what we envisioned, I love it, thanks for the information.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.


Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.



One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
