I will tell you up front. I stole this idea. I belong to a turning group on mewe and one of the turners there posted pictures of some birdhouse ornaments. They were stunning with a really different roof and a superb glossy finish. Anyway, I knew I had to try and figure out the look. It took me a couple attempts before I realized, the roof is nothing more than a very small natural edge bowl, almost. This is my first successful attempt, rough, with no finish but it's definitely a look I'll explore further, probably next Christmas season, good Lord willing. The body is from a small sycamore limb and the roof is the same of mulberry. Both are essentially still green so it will be interesting to see how it warps or destroys itself!
Yep, I find when I get down to the almost done portion of shaping this stuff I need to slow down and smell the roses, kinda...step back and observe, so, I find if I start an other picture I give myself more time to think what should I do in slow motion more or less.. So this is the next picture that has me thoughts..me thoughts on how nature does its thing whether good or bad, it works its magic of destruction like it or not.. So while I'm running this picture through my little brain I am still deciding how much more I can grind off here and there off the other picture and have things still definable to the general public of one of two total peoples... Amazing how this tree has wrapped around this obstruction....Fruitless mulberry grows like that here in my part of this world...but have no idea where this picture was taken???
