    Interesting that you mentioned it smelled like Vicks. I was just looking up that wood because I have never seen a Myrtle Wood tree and didn't know where they grow. The website I browsed mentioned the leaves when ground work as a flea repellent and sometimes a substitute for Bay leaves when cooking. I like the counter rotation idea in a matched set. Great job!

    Back when we were playing with the home made rotary jigs I was wondering here on the forum if a rope could be done. I did it years ago with my Craftsman Router Crafter. I will have to try that.

    Clint,

    The process I used requires a lathe to drill a 3/4" hole through the center and stop 1 1/2" short of the top end. You will also have to turn a jam chuck to plug the base end for the rotary jig. It's also easier to sand if you mount the finished carve back in the lathe. Here are the files. Let me know how they turn out.

    It's actually relatively soft. About the same as Pine or Fir. To me, it's the odor that is overpowering. I finished the project over a week ago and I can still smell it in my shop.
