    @samoftheforest. Thank you that’s a great tip.

    Carl, I tried some of these and instead of a tapered dowel I just rounded it off and spray it with water before you tighten the tail stock. Keeps if from slipping…..thanks, I enjoyed your video

    I can almost smell the slightly burning wood. This is heaven.

    @webbg6 Thank you, that is a great idea.

    Nice little project for us wood turners to emulate. Thanks. I do wonder why you didn’t make the central piece, the pin, a feature so that it is glued in to place and then becomes a bud. Walnut for the petals and sycamore/maple for the bud would look really good. Thanks again.

    Awesome video’s. I have been turning for a few months now and am hit by the bug. It is absolutely brilliant hobby. I really admire your presentations and have learnt much from your posts. Many thanks for that. The flowers are great and I am just about to go into the workshop and have a go myself.

    Keep up the good work.

    Best wishes John B

    hi iI think that if you made padels facing out you could have made larger hole in center and thiner padles.

    Hi Carl. I’ve seen a few of your videos now and i have to say they are superb. My favourite one so far is this one, the flowers look great when there finished and in the small vase. I’ve also learned loads of stuff watching the vid’s. So keep ‘em coming. Many thanks from the UK.

    Yah, that it is a great idea. Leaving it rough would have helped out.
    Thanks for the input,

    Hi Carl,
    Just a couple of suggestions that might help on this project. I think it might work out better if you did the majority of your sanding with the tailstock up against the wood for as long as you can and, secondly, I noticed how you cleaned up the dowel that has the taper with a skew chisel. Maybe, it might be better to leave it rougher so that it creates more friction with the blank and hence, ” bites ” better. You might want to use a tool in scraper mode even. Cool vid and thanks..:)
