    After effects

    Since my box didn't go as well as planned, anger forced me into a bowl type thing. Steve Schlumph gave me inspiration for the shape. It's Canary wood found on eBay, 5.25w x 1.75h and about .25 thick. I told LOML that it's an M&M holder. In the absence of a real finishing system (this to shall pass) it's finished in beeswax at 3200 rpm.
    Let me know what ya think and thanks for the support, ideas and results. I must say that this group pushes me to things that are lots of fun and stretch's my thoughts and abilites. Again...Mucho Gras

    That one came out nicely, Jim. I've only turned one piece of canarywood (a bottle stopper), but it sure is some pretty stuff.

    Good looking bowl Jim! I would think if you used it for M&Ms that the Beeswax finish would hold up just fine! Guess the important questions is - How does your wife like it? Nice work! Keep turning - it just keeps getting funner!

    Nice M&M holder!! I have an M&M holder too, she has enamel ivory around the opening!! I'm gonna be killed for that one. I did do a canary wood HF a while back when my lathe was in the apartment we had. canary wood was banned afterward because it stanked up the house. My mom bowlknapped it after a visit.
    There are no mistakes in woodworking until you run out of wood.
