Well I did get some turning done the last couple of weeks. This is a bottle stopper I turned from Arizona Silhouette. I had 1 more to turn for the display at the Arts Gallery but I didn't make it there and have sold 8 of them so far with people just seeing this one. These have the ceramic rose inside and went over real well with the ladies. So I guess I had better get moving it as they want them for Christmas and I have about 15 ornaments to make by Thanksgiving. By the way I will get pictures of the display after she has finished. She has it about half setup and looks pretty good. Right in the middle of the room.
Anyway it is all turned with a skew, finished by wet sanding from 220 to 600 grit and the Beall buffing with Tripoli and White Diamond. For my first I am pretty pleased with it.
