    Oak limb HF

    I was working on a photo box/tent and and used an HF from an oak limb knot that I turned last weekend. The pictures from the set up aren't to my liking so back to the taping board I go for that. I'm posting the pics for the sake of finally putting something on here. It was kind of a diamond in the rough in that I thought it was going to be rotten inside the bark but was going to turn it because it was there. It actually looks like it is melted around the rim and only has about 2/3 of a foot because of a melted looking spot on the bottom but is very stable sitting. It is about 4.5" and has a bees and buff finish. Comments are welcome.

    Brian, I like this a lot. Lots of different things to see in the wood and the "melting" on top and bottom. Well Done.

    Thanks yall, my wife is always beatin me over the head to show my turnings. I figured I might as well get over my hangups and get some out here. I read so much from yall that I feel like I'm starting to know you, so it's a bit more comfortable to spread out a little.

    Thanks Gari for the avatar comment. We all have our dart sets that we each picked out blanks for (some of us got two sets). They are fun to do.

    By all means, don't be shy. We've seen and turned 'em all...good, bad, and somewhere in the middle. Most of us won't find a harsher critic than ourselves.

    Thanks Vaughn, I'll put a few more on here as soon as I'm satisfied with my photo setup.

    Brian, that's really a neat piece. There's plenty going on to hold the attention. It's both whimsical and unique at the same time. Good job.
