The top is shaped with a 1/4" Oland tool with a long edge, sanded, finished with turner's polish, and an eye ring screwed in.
In a similar manner, the bottom is turned, sanded and finished. Here the idea is to give an impression of icicles forming as water runs down the bottom tip.
Thus we have three pieces waiting for glue up. I like to use a five minute epoxy although I find it takes more like 30 minutes to set up.
