    Latest Efforts

    Y'all can tell I'm home, huh? I have to turn while I have the chance and the wood.

    Bois d'Arc Vase with Ebony collar, 7 1/4" x 4" , sanded to 12000 MM and Beall buffed. That Bois d'Arc is so hard it shines beautifuly without any finish.

    Hackberry lidded box with flocking applied inside, 2 1/2" x 3", Deft lacquer and carnauba buff only.

    Cedar hollow form, 4" x 7", thinned BLO and Beall buffed with all three wheels.

    Cody,

    What in the world is 12000? I didn't know they made such a thing?

    Thanks,

    They all look great Cody, but the tall one is my favorite.

    Bill, 12000 is the smoothest grit in the Micro-Mesh (a.k.a. MM) abrasives lineup.

    There are even smoother abrasives out there. I have some that I got for "scary sharp" use that is 0.5 microns. That's about equivalent to 60,000 grit, based on this chart:

    Cody,

    You're one turning machine, huh? All look great, but the cedar HF has something about it that really calls to me. Excellent job!

    I like them all, but like some others the cedar hollow form is the one I would choose.
    Good work
    Best regards,
    Toni
