    Christmas presents

    Picture 1: For The Bride for Christmas, a Wall Street II click pen and pencil, Black Titanium and Pewter, turned out of Purple Heart, sanded to 600, 2 coats of Mylands Cellulose Sanding Sealer sanded with 600 between coats, finished with three coats of Mylands High Build Friction Polish. sanded with 600 between coats. Beall buffed with Tripoli, White Diamond Compound and Carnauba wax.

    Picture 2: For the daughters, bottle stoppers turned from Bocote, sanded to 600, rubbed with BLO and, after drying, Beall buffed with Tripoli, White Diamond Compound and Carnauba wax. Mounted on Ruth Niles #301 Stainless Stoppers. Sorry these are a little fuzzy. I took the picture and they are wrapped up now.

    Picture 3: Bottle stoppers, East Indian Rosewood on the left for the MIL, and Bocote on the right for a friend. Both were finished like the two stoppers above, except the Rodewood was rubbed with pure tongue oil. They were also mounted on Ruth Niles #301 Stainless Stoppers.

    Very nice work, and getting something handmand, is the best!

    Beautifully done Chuck. I've always felt that handmade gifts are the best, they come from the heart.
    I love making wood spin while I poke it with sharp metal objects.
