Coin Flask – piggy bank on the lathe

I made this coin flask for a friend – and in a hurry. I hope it does not show on the finished product, but there are a couple of things that I would have done differently if I had thought I had more time. Thing is, without that deadline I might not have ever started this project. Let me know what you think, and remember to Be Inspired!

Chaos Vase inspired by Kyle

If you have not seen the Chaos Vase that Kyle Toth made (as his 98th vase, no less), you should probably wait with it until after you watched my video making very roughly the same thing. Just with less awesome to it. My wife subtly expressed her liking for this piece, so it was more than obvious what I had to make for her. But apart from the whole “happy wife, happy life” thing, I learned a lot making this – and I hope you can, too!

Remember to be Inspired, and if you are, please share this post!

Stackable shot glasses.

Stackable Wooden Shot Glasses – with a Dragon!

Want to turn something useful and stackable, following an easy pattern? Then the wooden shot glasses are just the thing for you (and you can ignore the dragon part, too). Beverage containers on the lathe are not that new, but these are also easy to store because they stack! And in addition to that, they can be customized in different ways and this technique will still work!

Watch the video, and read more about the planning of this and possible finishes!
