I’ve been planning the cornucopia for over a year, letting the design evolve until I could take it on. It is a long project because I wanted it large enough to be able to put fruits inside.
This cornucopia is 10 inches in diameter at the largest ring and about 20 inches long. The wood is mostly oak with one ring of cherry. With 22 rings of 12 segments each, it has 285 pieces including the veneer added to strengthen the rings. The finish is walnut oil. Rings are held together with 22 gauge copper wire. Small coconut shell beads stretch one side to bend.
