turning a funnel *PIC*

John Lucas
>Yea I bet you thought I was talking about bowl turning. This is my version of the Tin Man from the Wizard of Oz. I found this oil can at the flea mkt and immediately know what I was going to do with it. I put it inside an inside-out turning of course.

This is all yellow poplar except for the oil can. The inside was painted with Stone Flek and then painted again with a metal looking spray paint. The outside was painted with the same paint without the Stone Flek.

If I have time to change it and can get the funnel back off I will make the heart smaller. It shows up pretty well in your hand but is impossible to photograph.
