    Square and Round too......

    I just simply love turning these, they are fun, fast and challenging at the same time, this one is about 4" square and maybe 3\16" thick. The wood is Blue Keyaki, some cut offs from the Genkan bench. There is just a spot of spalting in the one corner and there is some subtle curl in it too, does not show well on the pics. Simple mineral oil/beeswax finish, which I like because it is also fast and fairly durable.

    That's neat, I bet that could turn into a knuckle buster in a hurry.

    I have done a few of these and not one has turned out right. If you don't get the right measurements in the beginning they all end up looking naff so my hat's off to you
