Your work on the small stuff is so detailed. I'm always amazed at how people who work on such small items can create such detail. I love the lanterns too. How are you hollowing them out? (if you don't mind me asking)

Hi Poobah

Thanks for the compliment

The lantern was really difficult to hollow out, I first used a brace and bit to make a small hole. I then attached a router bit to a die grinder to make a bigger hole. I did this with both ends. Then I used a chainsaw for the rest
