    Apparently it's not always the selection of tools used but who is using them that counts. A wonderful job, Les, and that's a lovely piece of wood you chose to turn.
    Why has common sense
    become so uncommon?

    Very nice Les! I love the smell of the Honeysuckle flower, does the wood smell nice too?

    Les,
    Beautiful box.. great work.
    That some honeysuckle vine... if it's same as what grows wild around my place, I'll have to stop cutting it back... ours are a vine that doesn't get much larger than you thumb.

    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.

    I.ve never seen honeysuckle that diameter over here, must have another look in the hedgerows.

    The box looks very clean and neat. Nice job

    I have never seen H/Suckle that big neither, does it turn
    easily Les? Looks like it would make a nice box for
    toothpicks.

    Kevin,

    Honeysuckle turns very easily.
    Like butter they say.
