    Walnut HF

    Here is a little walnut HF I turned out of a small piece of walnut I had. It measures 5" high and 4 1/2" wide. I finished it with antique oil and buffed. I had a lady brought a clock in for repair and asked if it was for sale I told her $40. She had me 2 $20 bills.

    Thanks again. I like turning any wood but walnut has to be the favorite. Really makes the shop smell good.
