    Day off and Catching up

    Today I spent cutting firewood and only had a few hours free so i decided to finish up some projects and get them out of the shop. I Know how everybody likes pictures so here ya go.....................

    Picture-1 ---- two coats of Danish oil and steel wool 0000 - waiting to be buffed
    Picture-2 ----one coat of Danish oil and needing a couple more - then buff out
    Picture-3 ----Seal a cell and Armor R Seal 3 coats - finishing the bottom now and will dry and buff
    Picture-4-----Small vessel that i opened the top up to much and just finished it quickly - 3 coats gloss laquer
    Picture-5-----Set of three vessels waiting a couple more days to buff - Danish oil x 3 coats and Laquer x 3
    Picture-6 ----Better picture of one of the above - again i opened the top to much and simply just finished it out
    Picture-7----Custom turning and finishing with 4-5 coats of Laquer and will buff in a week or so
    Picture-8----Experimenting with color on a wood bowl that had to many bad areas so rather than throw it to the designer wood pile im
    adding a bit of color and playing around to see what it will turn out to be like.....more to come later when i get some finish on it

    PS - I got my goose neck from Randy this week and used it the past couple turnings and im glad i got this tool its great to use....2 thumbs up on this addition to my hollowing rig.

    Cool stuff, Dan.

    I see your SoCal driveway looks about like mine. Two vehicles and a pile of logs.
