@jldawadm Here is a classic wine glass form. Ash turned to 1/16" cup. It stands about 6". Dyed black with Transtint and then a 'pearl' white cream filler (Jimmy Clewes). I have made several more since ...

@jldawadm This is a small aperitif vessel turned from sycamore. It is about 3.5" tall. Dyed blue and black (Trantints and Mixols, I think) with silver accents (Sharpie). This one belongs to a DAW Christmas party auction winner ... don't remember who.

This is not a very good picture but its all I was able to take for now. 

The tall one is one I made from a Jimmy Clewes DVD out of Cedar Elm, the other two are miniatures of the same.  The medium height vessel is Red Elm, the smallest one is African Black Wood.

Nice. Why does the bottom look smaller in the first pic? Perspective?

@jldawadm - I guess that's possible. I don't have it in hand right now but the base may indeed be a little smaller in diameter than the middle. Or maybe the camera angle makes it appear that way. I have to check.

This Wood Cat Shot Glass? Is made from some scrap Pine and the tail is from Comp Wood. This is a first attempt. I may make more of these from different wood. The inspiration for this is from a silver shot glass I recovered from my mother's estate sale. The vessel will hold 1 Oz. I intend to make improvements on future versions.
