Sometimes when I have mandrels that bend or get wonky, I make plant
pokes.  Here’s some flowers I made recently.  These were the first ones I
made – I made them quickly because I was afraid they would crack from
thermal shock, so they aren’t the greatest.  I wanted to get a feel for
how to make them!  But now that I do, I see myself making a lot more of
these! Cuz those 1/16″ mandrels don’t last all that long!

  1. Amen sister! I bend my 1/16th's all the time. I bought a shears at Harbor freight for like $5 so I can cut the long ones down shorter. As for the short ones, looks like you got a perfect design for them! great work!
