    tired of formica so!!!

    Hey all i've been working on this formica cab job for the last couple of weekends and i'm getting tired of it,so to give my self a brake i decided to put some wood together and turn something .This is what it turned out looking like. It's made of maple and cherry.Now that i had a brake i guess i'll have to finish that cab job this weekend.

    That looks like it'll beat Formica any day of the week. Nice job.

    Some times you have to leave the world of daily tasks and just turn and turn and turn - they look nicely done.

    Yep sometimes you just have to do it. Get away. Very nice turnings.

    Boy do I hear you on the "Formica" thing, I've always struggled with that stuff, it is nice and durable when installed, but the installation can be a bear.

    Nice work on the turning, I wish I could find some time to get some of that in right now.................
