Bell Jar Base #02


This is another bell jar base. I'm not sure what the timber is; I think it might be black maire.

If the first oak base was teetering on the edge of the envelope for my little lathe, this one is definitely over it. It can be done, but the vibration when spinning something this heavy is slightly terrifying.

If I ever win Lotto, I'll probably buy myself a bigger, meatier lathe. And also a new workshop to put it in.

And here we are with the bell jar in place.

The monkey is a very old, fragile doll that belonged (I think) to my great great grandmother. It's Victorian, though I don't know precisely how old it is.
