Decorative Oil Lamp

The Captain's favourite on-line shop is Lee Valley, for their fantastic tools for all the woodworking projects he does at home.  One of his recent purchases was a handful of oil lamp inserts which he found a rather curious project to do just for fun.

This is what got him interested...

and this is what he did with it....

He used a beautiful piece of rosewood and turned it as a trial, since we haven't had much practice on the lathe yet. It turned out (turned....haha...) very nicely and with a little bit of citronella oil it burns beautifully and smells divine too.

Happy day!
