Well it had to be done and this is it. I have no idea what wood it is as it was one of those chunks that were passed on with the tools. If someone can identify it I would be grateful. I was sitting watching TV and this urge came upon me or it could have been a little voice coming from the shop. Anyways i ended up turning something. I didn't know what else to do with this chunk of wood but try to make a box. I can say i am loving that buffing system, wow is it fast. It really has made making things fun again, this box is really smooth. I did realize that I have to do just a little more sanding before hitting the buffer and I have to figure out how to buff the inside of boxes like this. Oh and about the funny little thing on the top. It was just something to put there to try making one. No idea what prompted it to end up looking like that. Just the wood talking again.
The wife is loving it as she is getting gifts every day. She says that I should have gotten a lathe long ago as she has never seen me so happy.
