A collection of turned trees.

My 2 - 3 inch tall trees stand or hang, for your convience.   I use hard maple, soft maple, red oak, walnut and cherry which gives a variety of colors and textures. They come in three designs: slotted, traditional or coves.   (Please see the examples given below.)

Short trees are in the two (2) inch range, plus or minus, the medium trees are loosely around two and a half (2.5) inches, while the tall tress are in the three (3) inch range.

Soft maple, is a loose discription.   It is a softer light colored hardwood.   I have some square pieces of wood which were give to me as maple wood.   This wood is also spalted (has started to rot) so it has some dark and light colors mixed in.   This is the surpise bag.   You get a tree of various colors.   I will update the picture when I move on to a new supply of wood.
