    Turnings For My Sister

    My Sister is coming for a month long visit up here in Kansas. We have 7 of us in the family so she will be making the rounds. I turned 3 pens and 2 lidded boxes for them. Two are acrylic and the 3rd is walnut from my dads farm. One for her, my neice and the walnut is for my BIL who has just retired from the NC highway patrol. The small apple shaped lidded boxes are for my sis and my neice. They are turned out of mahogany. Approx 3" tall and 1 1/2" across. Lacquer finish.

    Love the vials.... Pens are just pens IMHO but the turnings are great.

    Thanks for the comments. I really like doing those boxes. Fairly easy and the key is to get the lid and body seamless. Ray Key was famous for these boxes.
