    New jar/vase/HF??

    This is hubby's new jar/vase/HF--whatever you want to call it--that was just finished today. It's black walnut from my dad's tree, 5-1/2" high, 4-3/8" diameter, sides about 3/8" thick. Cracks/checks were filled with Behlen reddish brown WB grain filler and finished with Behlen Master Woodturner's Finish - 4 coats and polished like crazy.

    Ok, so I know the pictures aren't perfect, but I thought the form was so pretty that someone would enjoy seeing it. And yes, he lasered his monogram on the bottom, but it doesn't show up in the pics.

    And here's the other half of the log he turned this one from.

    That's nice Nancy. I keep seeing all of the things you spinny people do. One of these days I'll have to give it a shot!

    Looks good, Nancy. Did you or David turn it?

    I took the liberty of lightening up one of the pics a bit to show the grain a bit more clearly. It's probably a bit too light, but the grain's more visible.

    David turned this one--I'm going to try one next, I think?

    Yes, the picture is too light - the original pictures I posted are pretty much spot on for the color of the final piece. The grain doesn't show up well in the pictures, but it sure is pretty in person.

    Thanks for the nice words.
