    Small Turnings

    Finally have gotten some turning time in-between trips. I have some orders for Christmas so figured I needed to get started. I made a half dozen pill holders and 12 toothpick holders. All are wood except 4 which they wanted a blue for KU and purple for KSU. Woods range from bocote, osage orange, redheart, bubinga, paduk, walnut, cherry, etc. All were turned solely with a big skew. Sanding was 240 and 320. Finish is frictioned on brushing lacquer. Worked really well.

    Really great looking. I don't know anything about turning, but I can't imagine how you do such tiny creations.....
