    New stuff

    It looks like us spinners are down on the postings. So here's a go at it.
    First is a glue up stopper out of maple and mahogany, Spray lacquer finish. Next one is a peppermill, 11" out of some e-bay walnut. It sold in 10 minutes at work. Four coats of Wipe-on-poly (Thanks Bernie) and it functions well as a bat too!
    The pic's are bad but the last one is a walnut bowl (e-bay) that was my second DNA thing. I really worked to dump all the flat spots that show up in my bowls. Same finish (thanks again). Since I haven't done that many...I guess it's the () learning curve. Some that have a big blacktop in the middle or in the corner so I'm working on that. I was real happy that it passed Kerry's banana test
    Thanks to all of you guys...and the occasional gal, who give us newbie's room to grow and try new stuff. Your ideas make us a lot better And thanks for the Resizer Vaughn...It works!
    Critique welcome, but mostly needed

    They all look real nice, Jim. The curve on the bowl looks great.
