    Lack of turning weekend

    Come on guys!!! It's beautiful riding....oops...turning weather . I didn't like the final product, but the owner did. 1) a Sapple lidded box that stinks to high heaven. I'm so sick of that smell...I have 2 good chunks left if anyone is up for a wood swap. Then a couple of bottle stoppers from a cherry/maple sandwich. Cheers

    p.s. Vaughn...can you rotate that one for me? Thank you sir.

    Great work Jim! Love the lines on the box!

    The outward curve on the box seems to say "Lift Me! Come on, you know you want to!"

    Good job.

    I've only turned pen blanks in Sappelle, don't remember the smell though...

    Did a piece of willow yesterday... nasty swamp smell out of that and it was growing in a neighbors front yard, not even all that close to a ditch...phewwwww..

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.

    Ha!!! I hate smelly wood...except cedar. Sappelle has a very perfumey smell. Not bad by any means, just a bit over powering when your nose is in it for 2 days.
