    Finally getting around to finishing some of my 'presents' for Christmas.

    Frank, those are some beautiful scoops. Really like the birds eye and the black and white ebony. Do they make the scoops in stainless also?

    Thank you Darren! Excellent question. Rockler only offers brass, which is very solid / heavy duty. I'll look around for Stainless. Thank you again for you kind words.

    Hey, bring them on over. LOML got me 5 pints of Blue Bell for my stocking stuffer that we can sample. Part of her 12 days of Christmas theme. These were the 5 golden rings.
    Those are nice. Jim.

    The Myrtle surprised me. We had an auction at our Turner's Club and I bought several 1 1/2" X 1 1/2" X 12" twisted up "hunks" of donated Myrle. It turned and polished up nicely.

    Here is the back of the Black & White Ebony:

    Thank you Jim and Pete. Forgot to say, I cut them with a sharp skew, sanded with 220 grit and used the Beal buffing system. Just a touch of Renaissance Wax at the end.

    That ice cream sounds mighty good Jim; no bad time for ice cream.

    Very attractive woods, fine job of turning and knock-out finishes. Those are sure to be appreciated gifts.
